    "Without a doubt the most recognizable track from this entire album is 'Slam', the single which launched Onyx into superstardom. 'Slam' further cements Onyx as the most literally dangerous group in hip-hop, just not giving a fuck about anything. The production is one of the catchiest in hip-hop, and I mean ever. The trumpets and drums blend in with a distinct melodic bass providing true symphonic bliss, and thats not even including Onyx's vocals. Every member of Onyx (except Big DS) screams out bars tipped with venom and nihilism, displaying a level of anger rarely seen in music, and far more brilliant and honest than your stereotypical 'krunk' bullshit. The anger and hostility here is comparable to a Watts Riot; equal in frustration and violence. Difference is, music is a reflection of an emotion while the other is a true event. Sonsee, Sticky, and Fredro's charisma and attitude can no longer be overlooked, and even with an actual lack of profanity, 'Slam' is a bonafied hip-hop masterpiece." ~Epinions review

    All We Got Iz Us is a top 5 album to me, but that album never gets props. There has never been a more grimey, depressing and violent album in Hip-Hop history.

    Never liked Bacdafucup as much as the second one. "Slam" is a classic record though.

    White Recluse, yo let's come up with a system........

    I'll let you do the Throwback Track of the day on Wednesdays and Thursdays...I'll do the rest of the days...

    aight, and do the shit the way I do it........like for example, if you choose 2pac - Brenda Had a Baby for example, make the title of the thread like this "Throwback Track of the day - 2pac - Brenda Had a Baby"

    Then post a picture of the album, the dates it was released, and a review of the song/album......

    And I started this shit, so I don't want any body just going "OH THIS IS SUCH A COOL IDEA" then just jack my idea and totally fuck it up......so give credit where credit is due.
