    Default The Boot Camp Click - Last Stand



    The Boot Camp Click's Last Stand

    In the tradition of The Wu-Tang Clan and Gravediggaz, comes the third crew-cut album by Boot Camp Click. Passing the mic between Smiff-N-Wessun, O.G.C., Heltah Skeltah and Black Moon. "The Last Stand" sports top-notch production from such beat making heavyweights as 9th Wonder, Pete Rock, Large Profssor, Da Beatminerz and more. The album starts out with the contemporary banging beats with hardcore lyrics laced over, not much substance but head nodders for sure. With over an hours worth of music, the crescendo begins at track six, where you can really here the real talent and heart of the collected artists portrayed. The emcees that make up Boot Camp Click are very consciously aware of the many movements of current hip hop and the areas of decay, BCC seems to accept and adapt without breaking a sweat. With self aware tracks such as "Stand Alone" all the way to the real gangster anthems such as "Souljah" there is no stopping Boot Camp Click and where they will take their music next. The Pete Rock ("What You See") and Large Professor ("World Wide BCC") beats make up the best tracks and seem to show off Boot Camp Clicks real skill more clear than the simple 9th Wonder loops. Though I wouldn't call this album a classic, it really shows the musical standpoint of the Boot Camp Click emcees. They seem to be somewhere in between the mainstream and underground with a sound that's too rugged for MTV, and not pristine enough for the backpacking underground, but appreciated by pure hip hop fans worldwide. "The Last Stand" is sure to be resonating the streets with grimy bass lines out of the ghetto blaster until the next anticipated release.

    great album, my favorite of the year every single song is worth listenin to and brings in different flavours and shit throughout the disc, very good resembling of wu tang (not quite there yet tho obviously haha) but they dont follow regular formulas of all the booty rap that i fucking love how BCC hates..

    8/10 overall

    Sean P and Tek are my MVPs of the whole shit...P shines on every single verse.

    peace
    live and learn, dont be a bitch

    The Chosen Few was better to me, from the cover to the content, but this one is pretty good to, considering the general state of the rap game.

    sean p's consistency is crazy and his lyrics can go easily with any beat... any song he features on he steals completely, check Outlive the War by JMT and 5th Chamber of Bronze Nazareth's album.. those songs might as well have been Sean P featuring ....

    BCC doesnt get nuff credit

    Disappointing album because of the beats. I liked the album cover.
