i don't consider this LP to be a classic, but it definitvely got many standout tracks (as well as some lows which bring the rating down a bit). I love "R.E.C. room", "Trouble Man", "Friction", that short banger in the beginning with La The Darkman and some others. my favorite gotta be "lovin' you" though, so fucking sharp, short and precise that cut is! on the lows is "femme fatale" (which i really think is weak) and "forget me not" (which was o.k.), the theme on "grand prix" was pathetic (although great verses & good beat) and some of the beats sounds uninspired. but overall it's a damn good album (7.5/10)
best songs on this cd are rec room, grand prix, the cause, show n prove & 9th chamber
9/10 album. 9th Chamber, Grand Prix & Lovin' You are my personal classics, but there're other very dope songs: Uncontrolled Substance (I got used to this hilarious chorus...), Show & Prove, Word On The Street, Rec Room, Friction & The Cause. I wish there was more A-Team Wu-Tang featurings (where is Meth, GZA & Rae???) and better beats (it would be real 10/10 classic then), but INS spits fire in every song. hands down...
Half of this album is great and the other half I was not feeling.
Movas and Shaker
Exactly what I was thinking and the tracks you picked are the same ones as mine.

A very very dope album by INS. Love all the songs.
i just got the album today. i havent listen it to it fully but it sounds great so far. yeah for some reason it seems like deck cant cut it as a solo artist despite having one of the greatest flows ever.
i love this album some of the beats are WTF?
But i'm still feeling this, all though sum beats were errr...
My evidence, my own testament, written on wood
Twelve tribes layin at the head of corners in hoods
aww c'mon all beats were bangin' at least
i think of it a s a classic, 9.5/10
