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.

It just goes alont the usual Sunz of man/killarmy blueprint (not quite as interesting though). But It has more typical NY boom bap though on the beats. So it lacks alot of the trademark wutangness quirky samples, its more about base and heavy drums.

It was probably pretty standard at the time, sound a bit better now though.

Its nothing too special, just a steady album, and one of the more solid and better Wu affiliate albums. In terms of the Wu catalog I would give it a 3/5. The best tracks are probably 'Hip Hop' and 'Smoking'.

'Hip Hop' is by far the only standout track though.
