    Has there ever been a better indictment/satire of the status quo in music?

    This album was quite good, but I much prefer all the De La albums that came before it.

    I think Stakes Is High is their best album and AOI:Mosaic Thump album is also good. I like the guest appearances they have on AOI:Mosaic Thump like Xzibit, The Alkaholics, Chaka Khan, Freddie Foxxx, Redman(he did the hook on Oooh but i wish he would've rapped).

    This joint dropped twenty years ago today. The title track is really what made me take notice of Jay Dee. I remember the Bizness getting regular spins on Hot 97.
