This was when backpack rap really was QUALITY music, that was underground because it was underground, not because it was unpopular lazy poorly made music. Theres so much talent packed into one CD. Its like a dream line up that would never happen now. Every single of the 25 tracks is 5/5.

They even mixed it all together with the beatjunkies, that type of thing atention to deatail youd never see now.

I grew up on this album, shit was like a soundtrack for my teenage years.

If youre like me, my age, and you GREW UP on this OG Rawkus shit, it wouldve ruined all present backpack rap for you, because its so clear non of it compares to albums like Black on Both Sides, Like Water for Choc, The FIRST Reflection eternal etc.

You know, just real ass shit.

Not songs just full of rhymes about how wack everything is.

Just real lyrics.

Talking about shit like you talk with your peoples, not wack shit.

And this was back when Hi Tek was still one of the dopest around, not all that Hi-Technology the Chip bullshit. Back when he used to sample.




(the song isnt on youtube, only the fucking instra)










ETC ETC
I AINT GOTTA POST ANYMROE YALL KNOW THIS SHIT!!

Not forgetting that Em track.
cosign to the fullest

this is a hiphjop classic all day

props for recognizing

It's a little shout to my black and brown
Folks that know the game, not in class to clown
Had the funny accent, look who's laughing now
See Samir came here to grind, and he slaved at
Every minimum wage job, but he saved that
Brought his sis here on scholarship to make stacks
Working as a surgeon she bought a whip, and payed cash
No time to whine, we just face facts
Lets fit 6 in the back and lets take that
To the best restaurants, make reservations
Since we out here, since they made reservations
For first Nations and they never made reparations
The Natives probably relate more to immigration
So this for y'all too, and I can't forget the Haitians
Here for an education. Its a celebration.
