While Mase is perhaps better known for his monotone lisp than his rhyme skills, he shepherds through a surprisingly likable pop project with his Harlem World protégés. Don't expect the Harlem World crew to deviate much from the standard litany of ass, cash, and gun blasts, but even if the album doesn't break new ground, the Trackmasterz production crew keeps the ear-candy jar full of tasty treats. In particular, the steel-drum melodies on "Across the Border" and "100 Shiesty's" add a festive Caribbean touch, while "Cali Chronic" resurrects the familiar slinkiness of the Ohio Players' "Funky Worm" for a superior thugged-out track. Humor plays a strong role, too, including the self-parody "We Both Frontin'" and the unintentionally corny "Mamasita Interlude." --Oliver Wang ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Tight As Hell
Let me tell you something, if you like ma$e, puffy, jd, then you're gonna love this, XXL. You'll love it even if you don't like them. Forget any reviews that keep disrespecting this cd. Simply put, Ma$e just got bigger by producing a group, without him. Sure, he does his thing on a couple songs, you might hear his voice on the rest, but these people have real talent. It's not fake. Harlem World can rhyme, rap, and each one of them has a unique lyrical. True, this isn't really a gangsta gangsta sh*t type cd, it's party and fun times. No recycled beats in the cd, no similar raps, it's all orginal and deserves each one of those 5 stars. This cd is going to go platinum, and it should go double if it gets the proper video and news coverage. Get this cd, you'll love, i don't care where you're from.

3-0 out of 5 stars Mase Gumble
This cd was hyped to be really something. Ma$e at the time was on top of the rap game and had everyone on his side. His debut cd, "Harlem World" went 4x's platinum and he became a crossover success making way for future acts like Nelly, Ludacris and Chingy. Harlem World's very own debut cd was predicted to be really successful by analyst and fans alike, especially with its pop driven first single, "I Really Like It" featuring Mase's brother Blinky Blink and the rest of the gang. It however was a commercial failure and didnt reach platinum status. As of today Harlem World has not returned and given us a new album. Mase left the rap game in the summer of 1999 for God & opened his own church, named "S.A.N.E ministries" in Atlanta, Georgia. There was never word on whether or not Harlem World (the group) departed, but they are certainly quiet today. This album is a party anthemed cd and is in no fashion gangster or street. My advice is to buy this used for your own safety. Definetely dont pay seventeen bucks for it at virgin records/tower records, you'll be wasting your money.

P.S. Ma$e has returned to the rap game & has made airwaves on New York's Hot97, LA's POWER106 and other radio stations alike with his new song, "Welcome Back". He says hes back to make music, but hes going to disclude cussing or any foul language. Hes here to "Preach" to us clean music, not vulgar raps! :)

3-0 out of 5 stars A Change Never Did Come - Same Bad Boy Sound
A frequently asked question, "What is Hip-Hop?" Hip-Hop usually refers to the culture - graffiti-spraying, breakdancing, and turntablism in addition to rapping itself - surrounding the music. As a style however, hip-hop refers to music created with those values in mind. Mase is not reminiscent to the Golden Age (the six best years in hip-hop history) era of Hip-Hop, but his style harks back to the "Old School Rap" era - identified by it's relatively simple raps. The main emphasis is not lyrical technique, but simply on good times and Mase is all about good times.

The production on "Movement" is simply fun and playful on numbers such as "I Really Like It" and "We Both Frontin'" - the first is based around the biting sample of Debarge's "I Like It." Kelly Price provides vocals to the catchy instrumentation, while Jermaine Dupri controls most the action from behind the mixx board. The Neptunes supply The Movement with two-cuts in "One Big Fiesta" and "Not the Kids" - which the duo's notable sound is in the process of developing, but clearly evident to the pairs distinguishable sound. "You Made Me" features Carl Thomas, who shows-off his Stevie Wonder inflections and Luther Vandross ability to turn any slow song into a love song and this number is not a love song. The track is bitterly emceed by Huddy Comb, Meeno and Nas - it's a distressing number.

The album ends on an interesting note, the great rendition of Sam Cooke's legendary "A Change Is Gonna Come" - which is performed by the Harlem Boys Choir. The track is beautifully arranged, harmonized and sung. The emcee's play their part and from a production standpoint it hurdles retro beat making and the NYC party rap sound. The release shockingly tanked, but Movement shouldn't be overlooked because of it's lack of success. Though not the "crew of the year," the majority of the album is well-crafted, but far from extraordinary.

3-0 out of 5 stars ok
this CD is not all that, but I give it 3 stars because it's worth it for about 3 to 4 tracks alone, especially I Really Like It, that song takes me back to the 80's because of the New Edition sample and it gives me a blissful feeling.

1-0 out of 5 stars This is not worthy to be called an album!!!
Okay, I'm a make this short and sweet... This LP SUCKS!!!!!!!!!! Big Time. Don't waste your hard earned dough. Go get a Wu-Tang album. Thank You. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars LISTEN BEFORE YOU CONTINUE TO DISS
BEFORE I BEGIN THIS REVIEW, LET ME STATE THAT THIS CD DOES NOT CONTAIN ANY NEW MATERIAL AT ALL. ALL IT IS A RERECORDING OF THE RAP DISC OF BIPOLAR. HAS VERY GOOD SONGS. THE BEST SONG ON THIS WHOLE CD IS ''GET YOUR A** UP''. ONE SONG THAT I COULD'VE DONE WITHOUT IS ''INSANE KILLAS''. THIS CD PROVES ONCE MORE THAT V-ICE IS NOT REALLY A BAD RAPPER AT ALL. PEOPLE STILL CLAIM TO THIS DAY THAT V-ICE IS THE WORST RAPPER OF ALL TIME. ACTUALLY, ICE IS A BETTER RAPPER NOW THAN HE EVER WAS! BEFORE YOU CONTINUE TO DISS, AT LEAST DOWNLOAD SOME OF VANILLA ICE'S LATEST SONGS.

5-0 out of 5 stars Counter rate for the one star fool.
People should not rate items that they haven't heard yet. Don't give an artist one star just because you don't know how many tracks the cd has. I have heard some of Vanilla Ice's later albums and they are all great.

5-0 out of 5 stars ice
this is by far his best ever now if everyone will quit hatin and just listen to the music. he got a bad rap before but he is truly talented.

5-0 out of 5 stars great cd....!!
great cd, but basically a re-release of ICE's "bipolar" album but without the rock stuff... but his new hip hop stuff is better anyways... vanillaice.com has more info. on the matter...

5-0 out of 5 stars VANILLA ICE IS NO JOKE
Trust me. Forget all the bad things you have herd about Vanilla Ice. This guy can rap no doubt about it. This CD proves it. If this CD only got some radio play there would be a few hits on it. Hot Sex and Tha Weed Song are just two that come to mind. Vanilla Ice is back in a phat phresh way. Im not saying he is going to topple Eminem or anything but all the people who have ever hated on Vanilla Ice need to listen to this CD and forget its him because one you listen to this CD you will think differently about the Ice Man. Other Vanilla Ice CD's to check out are "Bi-Polar", "Hard To Swallow" and "Mind Blowin" ... Read more

-you can't even lie in say you didn't wear yor pants to the back.Back in the day these kids was dising other kids like they were adults or something-like the youngsters-abc-illegal-this
is one of there best album's

3-0 out of 5 stars umm, i dont know!
how many albums does kriss kross have? I havnt heard of them at all, my friend told me about them, dude R they still around? what happened to them? and whats with there clothes on backwards? and have u heard on krs one? i saw the album KRS one at a store, does that have anything to do w/kriss kross? some of these raps r good, but there 1st album is way better!

2-0 out of 5 stars Kris Kross Is Krossing Out!
Okay...They were a hit when they exploded with"Jump" back in '92, but this album has no real significance. I was 10, when this came out and they hit puberty,so the album didn't generate much attention to me, except for the minor hit "Alright".

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best 'Old School' ever
This is DA BOMB record! For anyone who likes old school this is for you

4-0 out of 5 stars Great remix, crap song
This just shows you that Trent Reznor can make any song damn good. The original song is pretty bad. I am not a fan of P. Diddy by any means. I believe he is the epitome of pop. With that aside, the remix is just amazing. Trent Reznor does an amazing job at making a crappy song sound awesome. I would give it 5 stars for the remix alone but you get the original on the single as well which hurts it. This single is a shining moment for Trent but doesn't do P. Diddy any justice.

2-0 out of 5 stars biggie and busta makes this song enjoyable
puffy's trying to hard to cash in still his verses [are weak], the beat [is weak] biggie smalls and busta ryhmes makes this tolerable.

5-0 out of 5 stars What's wrong with you people??
What on earth is wrong with you people? You either like it or you don't, but you give the song five stinkin' stars and then talk bad about it what's up with that? The song was raw but if ya'll don't think so then for heavens sake don't give it five stars you will mislead people that way. Personally I think that's Puff's best song. Peace. (This review is directed at the people who wrote the previous reviews.)

5-0 out of 5 stars 5 stars for Reznor...2 for Mr. Diddy
I bought this CD solely for the Nine Inch Nails remix, as I have never and will never be a fan of P. Puffy Diddy Puff whatever his name is...With that said...I can't imagine NIN did this for anything more than money they put to better uses, but the end result is a vast improvement over the track they were given to work with. The end result: an interesting direction for hip-hop to take, with industrial beats, synths, and guitars framing the vocals...it's been done before (by Ministry, Front Line Assembly, etc.), but is always interesting....

5-0 out of 5 stars Beutiful !
Such a wonderful person. Fine as hell I would love to meet him some day. His work is the sh*t. Always looking good on his Videos. Appears to have a wonderful personality should do something with Buster Rymes. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Stanley Kirk Burrell's second megahit!
TOO LEGIT TO QUIT,released in October 1991,was the second meaghit for this artist,now simply known as Hammer. The success of PLEASE HAMMER DON'T HURT 'EM,released only 20 months earlier,prompted Hammer to record this album immediately. Aside from the title track,hits include the religiously themed DO NOT PASS ME BY and THIS IS THE WAY WE ROLL. Shortly after this album was released,Hammer guest-hosted NBC's Saturday Night Live and was a musical guest as well. In that episode,he performed THIS IS THE WAY WE ROLL and the title track. Also,there's ADDAMS GROOVE,on the cassette format of this album. That track is from the movie "The Addams Family",based on the 1960's sitcom. All the aforementioned tracks would later appear on the GREATEST HITS compilation,released in 1996. This is Hammer's third album ever,and on the Capitol label(he would be dropped after this album).

5-0 out of 5 stars Why Didn't He Put Addam's Groove On It?
if hammer had put addam's groove on this album it would have been better than please hammer don't hurt 'em. this album sported 2 top 10 singles, this is the way we roll and 2 legit 2 quit, and could've sported a 3rd, addam's groove, which helped promote the addam's family movie instead, and peaked at no. 8 on the singles charts.

5-0 out of 5 stars You're not legit enough when you don't buy this CD!
Hammer's "Too Legit To Quit" LP is a must buy! It was way back in 1991 when I bought the album! It rocks, man! It's an outstanding rap album better than gangsta rap

5-0 out of 5 stars 2 Legit is a hit.
This CD, to me, is the culmination of MC Hammer's style. He kept the funky hip-hop beats that grab you and force you to dance, and kept everything positive at the same time. There is NO song better than 2 Legit to Quit for dancing and it was done while telling you NOT TO GIVE UP if you believe in something. If that's not positive, what is?

Personally, I hope MC Hammer returns to the scenes. I'll buy him in a heartbeat.... ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A rapper that actually had TALENT
It's amazing to think anyone would not recognize Marvin Young (Young MC) as the pre-eminent technical rapper of his day. His rhymes flowed easier, but with more technical skill than any other rapper. And he created these masterworks of lyrical ability within the context of songs that DIDN'T fall prey to the "gangsta" mentality or the misogynistic tendencies of most rappers.

Make no mistake, there is a reason this CD is still in print, 10+ years after the fact. You'll be humming these songs for weeks. It's just a shame that "Brainstorm", his 2nd album, isn't still in print, as it is also a standout effort from that time period. Intelligence, ability, and integrity make this one a Hall-of-Fame rap album.

4-0 out of 5 stars Young MC, enough said
To anyone out there who doesn't respect Young MC as an artist should throw away any rap/hip-hop/r&b cd they own. Because if it wasn't for pioneers like Marvin Young your cds would not exist in the same form. You may not like his music or whatever but please give him props and realize what he has done for the game(along with many others). Also do not try to put this cd in the same discussion as Vanilla Ice or Hammer or any other 5-Min fames. I will admit Bust a Move is just a party booty shaker. but Young MC is on a different level then that wack pack. It defines the parameters of classic hip hop. Stone Cold Rhymin was about music, beats & rhymes, not clothing lines and mindless gun toting jargon of today. Most rap videos and cds today are a basically commercials for other (...) like Cris, big rims, and other corporate money makers. (But I think most of us real listeners have been well aware of the downfall of hip hop for years, unfortunately.) I have listened to this album first in cassette form when i was 9, & still today in mp3 form at 22. Enough with my rant, most of the tracks are ill except one, the song "just say no" sounds like Ron Reagen payed him to make it, just ignore that track. The cut "Non Stop" is one of the dopest of all time,period. A sick beat goes with classic lyrics that have been cliched every day since the biters heard it first from Young. Don't play this at your next house party, skip those tracks and actually listen to the deeper cuts and you will be surprised. Whats the kicker is that this album has been around for at least 14 years, with little or no recognition except "bust a move" on a few tv party cds. Bottom-line, if your in to 50 Cent, Cash Money sisters, (...) Z, Lil John, etc you probably live in the suburbs and just wouldn't understand real music like Stone Cold Rhymin and probably don't deserve to. Buy this album and listen to these hidden classics.

5-0 out of 5 stars Def
If I remember correctly, Young MC was an economics major at USC. He uses some economic and political phrases in his raps, which are a bit banal by today's crass standards. The way he brags so clean almost makes it seem like he's running for President. The beats are light (lyte?) and smooth, and Young MC is quick and likeable. Also, I think Young MC wrote some of Tone Loc's songs. This cd is a lighter, quicker version of that laid back Southern California thang... When rap had to be more pop to hit the charts... and white boys in Pasadena were just starting to crank rap from their cars.... Overall, clean rap with an excellent flow and clever lyrics. And IMHO, Young MC is much, much better than anything Will Smith did back in the day. Young MC is on par with others of the day: Tone Loc, Big Daddy Kane, and not quite up to Kool Moe Dee and early LL Cool J. (minor sidenote: "My Name is Young" has faster beats on the CD version than my worn out tape... the tape version seems better).

4-0 out of 5 stars A long forgotten classic
Just purchased this CD not too long ago and haven't stopped listening to it yet. A terrific blend of raps of varying speeds and techniques. Young MC was most well-known for "bust a move," but the rest of this album shines as well, including track 7, "know how," and scores of others equally. 13-14 years after it's release, Stone Cold Rhymin' should be a part of any collector's ensemble of great rap CDs.

4-0 out of 5 stars One of the best rap albums of the 80s
In a time when rap was just beginning to crossover into the mainstream, Young MC came along and assisted in bridging that gap with Stone Cold Rhymin'. "Bust a Move" is the obvious choice for the best song here, but Young shows a lot of ability in his delivery and lyrical talent throughout the album. "Know How" and "I Come Off" show the extent of this ability. Young displays his humor on "Principal's Office" and the lighthearted "Roll With the Punches." The only reason for the 4 star rating comes at the end, with the decent yet surprisingly mediocre "Stone Cold Buggin" and "Just Say No." Yet, in the long run, all of the other tracks stand the test of time, whicxh makes this a truly great album. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars i had no idea what i was buying.....
sometimes i just like to pick music or movies out without really knowing anything about them. i had not listened to anything on this disc.
i love it. i've been playing it in the car, at work, and while walking on my treadmill. i will certainly keep wylef jean in mind in the future.
about me...i'm not a big hip-hop fan. i certainly liked old school, but post college i stopped listening to lots of music. i think i'll get back into it now.
I'M GRATEFUL TOO!

5-0 out of 5 stars five stars for the DVD !!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have to say that the CD is average compared to "the carnaval", my favorite Wycleff cd but the DVD is AWESOME !!!!!!! If you like reggae, get that one... Wycleff and his mates are playing live acoustic reggae in the studio and the quality of the recording is VERY good...

5-0 out of 5 stars Listen Once, Wait 3 Days, Enjoy
When I first listened to this album I was like ok, cool, sounds good, but I wasn't blown away. I think I waited like 3 days until the weekend and I listened again. It all hit me. I started humming the tunes to myself while I walked down the street. The album morphed into more then just ok. That's just how it is. It takes a couple listens and you are hooked. Very good tracks for a party mix. Very good tracks for just kicking back with a cold one. The bonus DVD with this is great too. I think every band should throw in a DVD for a few extra $. The layout of the DVD is cool and the quality is wonderful. You really get to see the musical passion of Wyclef.

5-0 out of 5 stars Hot Album!!

5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT CD...
I have always been a big MC Hammer fan, until I bought The Funky HeadHunter... I turned against MC Hammer and vowed never to buy another one of his CDs, but I did.

This CD is much better than the (bad) HeadHunter album...

I saw MC Hammer's new album in the store last week, and laughed. I said to myself, MC Hammer is trying once again to be something that he's not, a big time gansta! But, I got online and listened to some clips of his new songs and they sounded pretty good.

I bought the album yesterday, and to my surprise, it was awesome.

If you are a rap fan or an old MC Hammer fan, this album is for you. Its worth the dough!

2-0 out of 5 stars Predictable
This CD reflects well what MC Hammer is and always has been, a middle-class well-dancing pseudo-religious opportunist. He has no street credibility or anything creative to say. He just rips samples from whomever-else sounds good, and raps about nothing. Actually, on this album he found something to rap about, but it's pretty stupid. Hammer already joined the wacko-religious right (and can be seen giving sermons on Christian television), but now he has gone all-out sell-out and wrote a whole album to support Bush's war on terrorism. Bush should give him a medal for the song "Ain't Gonna be stoppin Us", but still, nobody would buy the CD. Peace.

5-0 out of 5 stars Hammer never quits
This album is a mix of R&B, Smooth Rap, and Hip Hop Dance music. The tracks are great depending on your mood whether fast or slow. Soldiers letter is the best song on the album followed by Pop Ya Collar and Nothin' but love. The young man who sings Night Show should get some airplay for this sultry love song. The religous views of Hammer are less obvious on this album as heard in Inside Out or Family Affair but the track Spittin' Fire is an impressive Gospel Hip Hop cut characteristic of the Funky Headhunter album. I was disappointed that Who'Holdin'It was so short but I love the lyrics similar to One Mo Time which was never promoted on an earlier album. I look forward to Mc Hammers new album - Full Blast.

3-0 out of 5 stars warped in time
all those who reigned in his era are now wallowing in there self pitty and struggling violently to rise above the realm of the has beens. While so many have fallen victim to age, contreversy, and simply passing there prime..... mc hammer still pushes out a bold attempt at re enterring the spotlight.
if you hadnt been aware of the release date apon first listening you would have passed it off as a solid hip hop album for 1990, but obvoiusly... that is simply not what it is,. this album is dated and overdue by over a decade and it seems that he is stuck between his prime and today with no way of getting out. if you are an oldschool fan than this album shouyld keep you content... but if your looking for something new you simply wont find it digging up coffins ( metophore for hammers career). i trust most of those who purchased this album got what they expected,.... because in todays music...who buys an mc hammer album for cutting edge music??????????????.

2-0 out of 5 stars I wouldn't even recommend this to fans
I was, like most Hammer fans, excited to see this album in stores, but I must say that my money would have been better spent on any of his other albums. There are a lot of bad songs here, especially becasue Hammer doesn't even appear on a number of them. And the good songs aren't even that great: Hammer's never been great with his delivery or lyrics, but as time has passed, it seems like he's gotten worse. He tries bragging about himself and his crew, but that's not exactly something he should be doing ten years after his heyday. The few bright spots really stick out ("Our Style," featuing some skillful rhyming from the Stooge Playas, and "Ain't no Stoppin' Us") because of the weakness of the rest of the album. I hate to drop on Hammer, but this was really not this attempted comeback was more of an embarassment than anything. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Puff Daddy Butchers the Led Zeppelin Opus 'Kashmir'
In this single, Puff Daddy butchers the classic Led Zeppelin opus 'Kashmir'. Just as he did with 'The Police' and 'I'll be missing you', Puff Daddy takes a very famous song and covers it in his own hip hop style. 'Come With Me' features Jimmy Page on guitar, complemented by a string orchestra. Puff Daddy simply changes the lyrics and the name, and takes it all the way to the bank. Avoid this one if you are a Led Zeppelin fan.

1-0 out of 5 stars Why
To begin with, Led Zeppelin is one of the greatest bands ever. This song however is horrible. Puff Daddy didn't change anything on the song except the lyrics, and he did a horrible job lyrically. This just shows how Puff Daddy is the epitome of pop. To be honest, this song makes me sick. If your gonna do you hip-pop thing Puffy, stick to it, but please don't butcher classics such as this song. I am completely surprised that Jimmy Page agreed to this crap. Stay away from this.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good song
It's amusing to read reviews of this song when people say it has a good beat and it sounds good, because led zeppelin, the greatest rock band to grace the earth of which jimmy page is from, who is one of the greatest guitar gods ever, had a hit with the song "Kashmir" which is what this song samples from with of course newly recorded guitar parts. This song is a pretty good song and should be listened to by anyone who enjoys music. I believe the blending of styles that have occured in music today are proof of open eyes and ears of the fans who love music.

4-0 out of 5 stars At least something halfway decent game out of that movie...
I do not really understand why some people are so offended by (the artist formerly known as) Puffy Daddy playing around with Led Zeppelin's "Kashmir," especially once Jimmy Page showed up to lay down the guitar bits. But then again, I remember somebody set the lyrics to "The Ballad of Gilligan's Island" to "Stairway to Heaven." So "Come With Me" is really nothing to raise your blood pressure and is a lot better than the Dred Zeppelin version. Besides, "Kashmir" has pretty much proven itself to be a bullet proof song, which sounds a lot better with actual strings than the melotron (or whatever) John Paul Jones used on the original. However, I do admit I have no big desire to really have the difference between these two mixes down in my own mind.

2-0 out of 5 stars Make up your mind, Hammer!
There's really not much redemption after releasing an embarrassment like The Funky Headhunter (something about Hammer in a thong is very disturbing-remember the "Pumps And A Bump" video?). And this album doesn't give heads a reason to check for him either.

The leadoff single "Sultry Funk" is reason enough not to buy the album, but in reality, compared to the rest of the album, Hammer actually does his BEST rapping on here (the song's still not good, though). And this song features raps from someone named VMF (Vicious Man Funk), who drops the wackest bars ever. I don't know where Hammer found him, but he never should have.

Other mistakes on this album are the wannabe party starter "Bustin' Loose" and the get-to-know-you vibe of "I Need That Number". And "Anything Goes On The Dance Floor" is bad as soon as it starts. Even the Eazy-E ode "Nothing But Love" comes off uninteresting.

But while half of the album features standard rap songs (if you can call them that), the other half contains gospel songs. While tracks like "Goin' Up Yonder" and "Keep On" have great choirs backing them up, they really have no business being on this album unless ALL the raps were gospel-flavored. Moreover, Hammer's rapping isn't much better on these songs.

M.C. Hammer still doesn't seem to understand that being too experimental is not a good idea. Filled with out-of-place gospel, bad rapping, and lame guest stars, V Inside Out isn't worth the cash.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome
One of Hammers best Cds yet,inspiring songs and great dance beats,definitely would reccomend this one!! keep it coming Hammer!!

4-0 out of 5 stars Hammer's getting back on track
I must say that i was absolutely shocked when i listened to this Hammer CD. It's nothing like i imagined. And especially with the Gospel touch - it's really cool.Never has a CD captured so clearly the emotions of the artist (other than Tupac's tracks). And a most appropraite title for it -INSIDE OUT. With tracks such as "i hope things change" and "keep on",to the spiritually laced tracks "He keeps doing great things" and "going up yonder", hammer strikes gold once again. And what Hammer CD would be complete without some really groovy dance tracks? Check out "Sultry funk", "Everything's alright", "Luv n happiness", and authentically Hammer "Anything goes on the dance floor". A fantastic and different touch from the man who once sat on top of the rap and hip hop world. INSIDE OUT.

5-0 out of 5 stars Salt-n-Pepa are still hip-hops #1 diva's
I can't see how anyone can front on this album. Of course they aren't the same they've been before. They have matured. This album is the best to date. The best sonsg are R U Ready, Gitty Up, Say Ohh, and Imagine. The whole album is off-the-hook. The on the scale of 1-10, they desrve an 11!

3-0 out of 5 stars WEAK WEAK WEAK!!!! DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY TO BUY THIS ALBUM
This album by salt n pepa is the worst since their last release. I'm very dissapointed in you guys. the only song I really enjoyed is Gitty Up.

3-0 out of 5 stars the last straw
well this was the swan song for salt n pepa and the game changed it was all about lil kim, foxy brown, and missy elliot still worth a listen and if you feel snp you outta get this and recognize some real queens.

5-0 out of 5 stars SO COOL !
This ,the most recent album from S n'P is there best . They have matured on this set and it is for the best . There are muture songs like " GOOD LIFE" among ohters . There are sexy songs like the most popular single " GITTY UP ",album tracks like " BOY TOY" and ones that fall in between like " NEW BRAND " and the first single " R U READY ". This is a must for those who like Pop - R&B and Pop - Rap . I really hope they come back and do another album . Great work S n'P! If it is sexy songs you want, I strongly recommend that you buy KARYN WHITE- " RITUAL OF LOVE ", SAMANTHA FOX- " JUST ONE NIGHT ",EXPOSE- " EXPOSE ", THE COVER GIRLS- " SATISFY ", CYNTHIA- " THINKING OF YOU ", JOMANDA- " SOME ONE TO LOVE ME", JANET JACKSON- " VELVET ROPE ", SILK - "LOVE SESSIONS ", MONIFAH- " HOME ", JOHNNY GILL- " LET'S GET THE MOOD RIGHT ",JOHNNY GILL- " PROVOCATIVE ", H-TOWN- " LADIES EDITION " & RALPH TRESVANT- " IT'S GOIN' DOWN ". Now if you want some dirty - minded R&B / Hip - Hop , purcase BELL BIV DeVOE- " BBD " , TOTAL- " KIMA , KEISHA ,PAM " MONIFAH-" MO'HOGANY " and MILLIE JACKSON- " NOT FOR CHURCH FOLK! " SIGNED [12] YEAR OLD MUSIC FAN.

5-0 out of 5 stars A classic
This is SnP's best album. They have really matured and improved since coming out with Very Necessary. IMO, EVERY track on brand new is easy to listen to and at least above average, RU Ready, Do Me Right, Imagine are excellent, and most tracks are good to very good. I can't say the same for past albums such as Very Necessary where there were a couple hits, but many songs that are so poor that one has to do a lot of fast fowarding... ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars WHAT?
Sting, what have you done? Why must everyone keep re-mixing and re-making everything? It's pointless! ARRRRGGHHH! Okay. Enough of that. This used to be a classic. Now, its just some piece of crap that that idiot P. Diddy re-mixed. Seriously, has that guy ever come up with his own song? Please, vote yes on the keep P. Diddy away from music act. Save our music.

1-0 out of 5 stars Hideous.
I don't think it's really a matter of opinion when I say that this single is just woeful. It's pretty much a matter of fact. "Roxanne", for those of you who don't know was a great single released by The Police in 1979. I don't know what Sting was smoking when he decided to team up with P. Diddy but this remix is the worst thing he's ever done. It's the same chorus with Mr. Diddy ranting "Yea, aw yea, big ho, yea" or something to that effect. The rap is pathetic and sounds like someone wrote it in five minutes on a toilet. Sting should be bloody well ashamed of himself for this. If you are thinking of buying this single, first of all you should buy a good plunger because it doesn't flush well. Secondly, you should shoot yourself.

1-0 out of 5 stars Sting fans shouldn't buy this
If you're a Puffy Daddy/P. Diddy fan, buy this...I guess. If you're a Sting fan, please don't.

1-0 out of 5 stars P. Dudley Does It Again....Ooooooh Boy
Absolutely HORRID. There's one very important thing to understand here: Sting is a proper songwriter; P. Dudley is not.
He should never have touched this classic to begin with,as he can't come anywhere near Sting or his mastery of songcraft. Seems he wrecks anything he touches--just look what he did with Led Zeppelin's Kashmir. Hey,Dudley,a word of advice: you should only remix what you (think) you could do better,or at least just as good in another way. But for God's sake KEEP AWAY FROM THE CLASSICS!!! that's where your obvious lack of talent truly shines through. :}

1-0 out of 5 stars An Atrocity.
Sting and the Police were a great band that successfully fused pop, punk, and reggae seamlessly on their albums. But this P. Dummy remix of the classic "Roxanne" is an abomination. A generic hip hop beat desecrates the hit single, dealing a considerable blow to the Police's credibility. Preserve your ears and don't get this disc. ... Read more

Given the massive box-office success of the original Men in Black, the only real surprise was that it took Hollywood five years to crank out the loopy, CGI-laden sequel. Composer Danny Elfman keeps the original MIB creative team intact, weighing in with a typically energetic orchestral score that dutifully ratchets up the suspense and punctuates the action. But it's a largely connect-the-dots exercise; aside from the deliciously loungy pair of Austin Powers-savvy bossa novas that bookend his work here ("Worm Lounge #1 (Worms in Black)," "Worm Lounge #2"), there's a sometimes uncomfortable lack of originality (let alone melodicism) in much of what remains. The tense, workmanlike efficiency works fine with the film, but longtime fans may find this a decidedly McElfman listening experience. Still, the soundtrack ends on an a pair of appropriately goofy/cheesy notes: Tim Blaney's gravel-voiced Frank the Pug crooning "I Will Survive" with grating canine fervor and the duet of Will Smith and Tra-Knox gettin' jiggy with the hip-hop/Bond music hybrid "Black Suits Comin' (Nod Ya Head)." --Jerry McCulley ...

It is a great C.D.!!!! Everyone will like it. Also it is ok for children! It is my favorite C.D. Also there is no profanity. It is better than the first.

4-0 out of 5 stars Elfman is back in black
Danny Elfman, having scored the first Men in Black is back again scoring the sequel. No other composer could have done it but Danny Elfman. This score is much more groovier than the first. Elfman uses the Men in Black theme much more in this one than in the first. It is not exactly the same as the theme from the first, as little variations are thrown in to make it a bit different. In fact, almost every track uses the M.I.B. theme in some way or another. When you first put the CD in the player, this hip-hop tune starts up. "Worm Lounge #1" is Elfman in crazy form with swinging trumpets, hip-hop bass, and quirky la la vocals. Don't try dancing to this one, it will make you look stupid. Most of the score is groovy sounding with electric guitars along with a rhythm section and a moderately sized orchestra. "Big Jeff" is a thrilling action cue, with firing brass and choir. The chorus is also utilized in other cues, such as "Headquarters". "The Real Story" and "Heart Thump" take a break from the quirkiness music and show a more mellow side. From "The Defense Begins" to "The Finale", the music really takes off and shines. A massive brass section and a thrilling choir showcase these tracks and show Elfman in top form. "I Will Survive", the classic Gloria Gaynor song, shows Tim Blaney singing as "Frank the Pug". It doesn't really sound like singing, but more like talking. Will Smith's song "Black Suits Comin'" is cool and better than his song from the first film. He too is a talented artist and a great actor. However, Elfman is the spotlight of this soundtrack and showcases his incredible writing talents throughout. A thoroughly enjoyable soundtrack.

4-0 out of 5 stars Really Great Cd, Elfman Keeps Gettin' Cooler and cooler...
Well, here I am to report on yet another Danny Elfman score. With super-high expectations for the summer box-office, we were expecting some profound movies. What we got was having the top-grossing film of the summer, "Spider-Man", contain an Elfman score! YES! Now I am here to review "Men In Black 2". Although the first movie was done better and the score was a very common thing of the Elfman of that time, his methods have evolved. I sit here listening to a track from the first "MIB". Then, I will put on an "MIB2" song and compare. ...........Done. The verdict: the "MIB2" score is better than that of the first. "Men In Black 2" has a more frenetic feel than the first one. Plus, almost every track ends in one of the billion transformations of the "MIB" theme, which is a good thing. There's J's theme, that kind of Bond-esque "Do do....do do." There's also K's theme, the really light guitar melody, played at its most weirdly heart-wrenching best in the middle of "J Nabbed/K's Back", it is used again, very well, near the end of "The Light". I only have one question, where is Serleena's theme? She is the villain, all villains have themes. The Green Goblin had one, why can't Serleena have one?! Anyway, on "Chop-Chop", she doesn't get a theme but when you listen to it, you kinda sorta get the sense that shes there. "The Chase" is a really cool song, with synth, bongos, and orchestra in the background. You listen to it and its just really cool. It's kinda "slick" (no reference intended), in that way that only Elfman can deliver it to us, his ever adoring fans. Ah, "The Light". It delivers yet another transformation of the "MIB" theme, then after :25 it just calms down. It turns into someting really mellow and yet cosmic and choral at the same time. Elfman then delivers our pseudo love theme for J and Laura. To me, it isn't pseudo at all. It's a damn love theme to me. I think they should have kissed before she left. Crashing into a motif for the re-emergence of Serleena (she looked like an aerial view of Medusa's head). It calms down again with another showing of the love theme, crescendo-ing strings, to............A BANG FINALE!!! I told you all Elfman scores have one. (See: Batman - Original Motion Picture Score, review name "Elfman's Best Action Score). The CD could have done without Frank singing. Overall, BUY IT! Its really a good CD, if you want a cool vibe in your CD player.

There are actually far better contenders for the position that Vanilla Ice now occupies: That of the least-regarded (critically, anyway) superstar of the pre-Alternative '90s. MC Hammer comes pirouetting to mind, for one. Where're his props lately? Busted out from under him. But Oho! Vanilla Ice and MC Hammer are now collected on the dual Back to Back Hits compilation--which is bargain-priced and supersedes To the Extreme. It's by far the better value. "Ice Ice Baby" is not a bad song--it's just a Queen song without enough Queen. But then, take a sweep at today's hip-hop arena and tell me the man (Van Winkle will be the name on his death certificate) wasn't prescient. In the end, he may be remembered as the proto-Puff Daddy. --Gavin McNett ... Read more

Vanilla and Snow should go on a tour together and call it the "WE SUCK HARDCORE!" Tour. What a slap in the face to rap this album is. Others are keeping it real, while Vanilla is keeping stupid and not in a good way too! Vanilla, you suck! Your album sucks, it sucks, it sucks, it sucks, and boy does it suck! What a sucky, sucky, sucky album. It just plain sucks!

5-0 out of 5 stars Vanilla Ice deserves a bit more credit
It is unfortunate that most music listeners fail to look beyond "Ice Ice Baby" when examining his music. He cannot be blamed for covering other artists, especially because this is a practice widely used today. To get a better idea of the talents of the Iceman, try listening to songs such as "Havin' a Roni," "Fame," "Go Ill," and "Now and Forever." As for "To the Extreme," it is a must-have that is certain to provide hours of entertainment and nostalgia. Vanilla Ice is an artist of many styles, and this album shows it. Any good music reviewer should know that in order to rate an album, it must first be listened to, and it seems that many reviewers fail to do just that. "To the Extreme," the best-selling rap album in history, is a great collection of music that can be enjoyed by nearly any audience. "Back to Back Hits" is a great album as well, but to call it a better value is a lie, be! cause purchasing and listening to it as a substitute for "To the Extreme" will merely deprive the listener of the opportunity to discover Ice's wide range of talents. Anyone who listens only to "Ice Ice Baby" and thinks he or she is a true Vanilla Ice fan or expert is really just a sellout.

When MC Lyte rapped "Beat biter / Dope style taker / Tell you to your face you ain't nothing but a faker," she wasn't referring to Puff Daddy, but those words may have echoed in the brains of many non-NY producers--especially those from New Orleans and the Bay Area--upon hearing the bad boy don's second solo effort, Forever. For much of the latter part of the '90s, many New York rappers have included a couple of token G-funk or bounce-influenced tracks on their albums, but on Forever, Puff takes it to extremes, with almost half the album falling into that category. One would think that Puff's lazy, unskilled drawl would fit perfectly with the foreign sonics, but instead, his mumbling is more blatant, twitching erratically like the proverbial fish out of water, especially on cuts like "What You Want" and "Satisfy You" (where he loops the Luniz' classic "I Got 5 On It"). Where he sticks to the usual plan, he pulls it off steadily, and on "Journey Through the Life," a powerful posse cut with Nas, Beanie Sigel, and Lil' Kim, he's created a NY thug cut par excellence. Just goes to show you can't teach an old producer new beats--even if he pays royally for them. --Jon Caramanica ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Probly The best yet
I have listen to a lot of rap from run dmc to 50 cent and nothing compares to this album. Puff Daddy (P Diddy) got it right in this album. Every song is amazing and when he collaborates with other artists it sounds amazing. Unlike his new album the saga continues, that was a big let down. I hope when he brings out a new album it is something like Forever. I want to start a record company and if I find an artist like this and produce albums like this I will be making a fortune. It is really worth buying!

3-0 out of 5 stars worth listening
Well of course you can't say that it is brilliant album because Puffy is definitely not a rap genius like 2pac or his friend Notorius were. Nevertheless he can rap and he is definitely a good producer who knows how to make good hip hop track you can enjoy. The best tracks on the album are "Do You Like It..." one of the best lyrics I've heard (in rap), "Satisfy You" (people say that he has stolen it from Luniz, well I'd like to remind you that they took the sample from Club Nouveau so it wasn't their invention), "Fake Thugs Dedication" , "Best Friend" , "P.E. 2000". There are few others also not bad, but the rest is just to similar to each other. Puffy repeats himself in few songs, about how he is hated, discriminated etc.. Also recalling Notorius in almost every track gets a bit annoying. I mean everyone heard "I'll Be Missing You" and knows that he misses him. He should let Notorius rest in peace.
Summing up it's an album worth buying, when you get tired of listeningto it, it works out at the parties.

5-0 out of 5 stars Forget Diamonds, P. Diddy is FOREVER!!
This CD is BLAZING!! Straight up, it's lyrical and musical FIRE!! HOT!! P. Diddy takes Hip Hop to another level on this album. It's more introspective and personal than No Way Out, as Diddy admits his sins and channels his rhymes in a direction of social awareness, something unprecedented in the Rap game. He even continues to make hot songs as well. "Satisfy You" is the biggest hit, using a clever Club Noveau sample ("I Got 5 On It" by 1 Hit Wonders The Luniz is WACK compared to this!!) to illustrate his love for that special someone. It's not quite the frenetic party of No Way Out, but a SLEPT-ON CLASSIC nonetheless.
BUMP LIST (90% of the album is BUMPABLE!!):
Satisfy You
I'll Do This For You
Reverse
Best Friend
Real Niggas
Journey Through The Life
Do You Like It...Do You Want It
P.E. 2000

3-0 out of 5 stars "Forever" might need a few more months
When he released his first album entitled "No Way Out" in 1998, Sean "Puffy" Combs was designated as a new talent in the rap industry. This critically acclaimed album was all that it was cracked up to be. With hit tracks such as "It's all about the Benjamins" and "Can't Nobody Hold me Down," Puffy went on to sale more than 10 million copies worldwide, paving the ground for his way to stardom. He is known for sampling many old hit songs and transforming them into a new style of music. And it made him big. As CEO/Chairman of Bad Boy Entertainment, Puffy took many artists in and transformed them into superstars such as: Notorious B.I.G. (aka Biggie Smalls) and Mase. But with the sudden death of close friend Biggie and the announcement of rapper Mase leaving the rap business, Puffy had to step it up.

This album was not fresh as the first, and not nearly as close as to what he could have accomplished.
Most of the tracks in this album are monotonous, and it seems as though he is radiating a lethargic feeling to his listeners. There are tracks such as "Satisfy You (Feat. R. Kelly)" that are smooth sounding and lyrically synchronizing, but many of his tracks are reminiscent of the first. He does have, however, a strong cast of featured guest artists such as Jay-Z, Busta Rhymes, Redman, and Bizzy Bone. If you really liked the first album, don't have your hopes set so high on this album.

5-0 out of 5 stars awesome cd
