AllMusic Review by Leo Stanley
The Boot Camp Clik is a bit like a low-rent Wu-Tang Clan. Instead of establishing themselves as a crew before recording an album together, the rappers -- including Heltah Skeltah, Smif-N-Wessun and OGC -- each made solo albums and reunited in 1997 to make For the People. Happily, the group used the opportunity wisely, deciding to forge ahead to new sonic territory. Leaving gangsta rap and standard funk behind as the group abandons their production crew Da Beatminerz, the Boot Camp Clik has created an appealingly off-kilter sound that relies equally on wobbly rhythms, old-school synths and acoustic instruments. There are times that the mix is too dense, particularly when the group tries to get slow and soulful, but For the People is the best thing anyone in the Boot Camp Clik has yet produced

  1. *Update (1/11/2020): After borrowing a friends copy, who's album cover is in better condition than my current copy is, I scanned the newly borrowed album cover with my scanner's "Auto Mode" turned on and it's "Color Correction Mode" turned off. My original scan was was done on my now very old portable USB scanner, with no changeable settings as opposed to my home scanner due to me being away from home at the time of the original publication.

    The links have also been updated with the files now containing the new album cover scan within the metadata.
