COMMENTS -------- hey homies here are passion and ease with a reaction to arise issue #5. it contained a story about music styles, also about rap/hiphop,written by rave of twlight. it's a nice story rave about how rap was started and when. ya forgot to explain a few things,for example;rap found his influences in soul,jazz and reggae music. the first rappers (the founders of it) were afrika bambaata and grandmaster flash,a thang not to be missed in a rap report about the different styles. we think there's a lot more to describe than "yer" three ones. we would choose. gangsta rap (i.e. ice-t,n.w.a. and ice cube). nasty rap (i.e. getc boys and 2 live crew) political rap (i.e. boogie down,ice-t & public enemy) commercial rap (i.e. ll cool j,heavy p etc,this is what you'd call "lovers rap" hardcore rap (i.e. boogie down,2 live crew) and maybe some more. you see, groups are often sorted in one category. very good article about run dmc,but you could have written alot more about chuck d,as for he was in da famous(?) rapper group section 8,one of the first posses. why da heck did ya put "ice" vanilla ice into this? that arrogant loose should be in the catergory "one hit nothing more". you could have added more famous names like,ice-t,ice cube,n.w.a. or boogie down productions to it. also that you've put so less about public enemy,probably da best rap posse ever, has surprised us. the point is,and this is no offence,yer report could've been a lot better(detailed). just saying about public enemy,that they've got chuck d as a lead vocalist,just isn't enough. what about flavor flav,and terminator-x(the best dj ever)? they also have a place in public enemy,without them da posse wouldn't even exist. well we think this is enough reaction to put ya thinking. passion and ease are off. CHARTS ------ yo mates! this is provoke writing just after finishing counting 3 album top 10' by the editors only. i hope i'll get some charts of fellow (homies) sceners soon so this chapter will be big. lets start. 1.fear of a black planet public enemy 2.apocalypse 'g' public enemy 3.efil 4 zaggin n.w.a. 4.the predator ice cube 5.home invasion ice-t 6.house of pain house of pain 7.yo!bum rush the public enemy show 8.step in the arena gang starr 9.in god we trust brand nubian 10.sports weekend the 2 live crew 11.straight outta n.w.a. compton 12.business never epmd personal 13.it takes a nation of... public enemy 14.amerikka's most ice cube wanted 15.don't sweat the eric b and ralum technique 16.the iceberg ice-t 17.we can't be geto boys stopped 18.hiphoprisy is hiphoprisy the greatest 19.3 years,5 months, arrested bev 2 days 20.tougher than run-dmc leather public enemy hitting da charts(they deserve it),cube's the predator should be higher. just wait for da next month.

EFIL 4 ZAGGIN,n.w.a.(iggi) though this album's abit old,i thought it would fit in perfectly in this first rap pages,as we're talking alot about n.w.a. by the way for those who don't know,n.w.a. stands for niggaz with attitude. they were quite successful in da past,with albums like staight atta compton. now they're giving us a mix from 2 live crew,getc boys and ice-t music with a lot of nasty gangsta-like rap,which is sounding def. after ice cube's left them,a lot of homies thought n.w.a. wouldn't survive,wrong! this album proves what they're up to,with or without cube. i think this was their last lp,which is a pity,as da nigga2 really are one of da posses i favoured. da trax on this album are: 1.prelude(gangsta-like rhythmic beat, real shit) 2.real niggaz don't die (main song,very addictive beat) 3.niggaz 4 life ("phukk da pigs"alike gangsta) 4.protest (vident track,funny beginning) 5.appetite for destruction (best track gangsta-like) 6.drink that wine (swing beat song,very good) 7.always into something (addictive tune) 8.messagae to ba (a very short message track) 9.real niggaz (mix between gangsta,and nasty) 10.to kill a hooker (real life scene killing and rapin' bitches) 11.one less bitch (nasty rap,pretty cool 12.findum,fuckum & flee(nasty rap) 13.automobile (soul like,nasty track) 14.she swallowed it (an addic(k)ted trax 15.i'd rather fuck you (most chillin' stupid track) 16.approach to danger (public enemy like styled) 17.1-goo-2 compton (real life jail talk) 18.the wayz of waybadi (mix between nasty rap and ragga) * dr dre,sampled this track for his single,nuthin' but a 'g' thang,which has got da same melody. best track: prelude,real niggaz don't die,appetite for destruction,don't drink that wine,alwayz into something,one less bitch,and i'd rather fuck you. this is probably n.w.a.'s best album ever. as i'm really into slow chillin' rap,i can advise ya,pick this one up in yer collection,if you haven't got it already. i can say without anything, this was the iggi album. that's why i'm giving ***** n.w.a. for their master- piece. reviewed by ease. THE PREDATOR,ice cube (igg2) cube has done it again. da man who has given us lp's like amerikka's most wanted and kill at will,is now steppin' up to dee upper elite of rap. after his shockin' departure from n.w.a. the compton rapper has been quite active. after da release of a few solo joints,he has been in his first acting appearance in da hit,BOY'S N THE HOOD(by director j.singleton). not only that,he has also been producing posses like,da lench mob, and promisin' rappers like kam. the predator was the first rap album which topped the #1 place in da us billboard charts. the first release wicked,was really def(containin' samples from public enemy's excellent welcome to the terrordome and can't truss it). it was about dee la kaos situation in 92 about da rodney king case. usin' speed rap was a good choice. da trax on this album are: 1.the first day of school(real life bust 2.when will they shoot(speed rap,dope melody) 3.i'm scared-insert-(speeches about racism) 4.wicked(best track on this album,speed rap)* 5.now i gotta wet'cha(mix between chill and gangsta) 6.the predator(main song,has shit beat) 7.it was a good day(perfect track to chill on) 8.we had to tear this up(exceptional gangsta piece) 9.fuck'em-insert-(track full of shit talk) 10.dirty mack(addictive samples,a bit of nasty) 11.don't trust'em(nasty rap,'bout bitch) 12.gangsta's fairytle 2(chilling track good melody) 13.check yo' self(feat.background vocals from das efx) 14.who got the camera(nuthin' special) 15.integration-insert-(again shit talk) 16.say hi to the bad guy(speed rap,very shit) * look at the intro above. most hype shit:when will they shoot? wicked,the predator,it was a good day,we had to tear this motherfucka up,gangsta' fairytale 2,check yo' self,and say hi to the bad guy. this is the album to go for,if ya haven' got it yet. it's got some non-sayin' speeches in here(all da ones with insert behind da name),but most is shit. da guest appearance of das efx on the song check yo' self isn't surprising as cube seems to take over da speed rap rage started by dem. i personally like it was a good day da most,though wicked is one of da best raps cube ever did. i give this album ***** reviewed by ease.
