It's not that Craig G and more notably, Marley Marl, didn't make good music and shouldn't be included when looking at old school hip-hop. They did make some good stuff, but not on this album. This is easily the worst work put out by both of these guys. There are ugly and commercial beats, unthoughtful lyrics, and absolutely no vibe to carry this through. It's almost like Craig G forgot how to rap and was trying to improvise his way through or trying to get all the lyrics written in one day. With so many other rappers making good records, this surely isn't going to cut it.
