Guitars? Harmonica? Gary Numan's Cars? "She loves me/she loves me not" cliche? That's what we're counting as hardcore hip hop? Yeah, count me the fuck out. Title track is legendary, and Kool G Rap's performances generally are the best part. The rest is so pedestrian that I can't bother to give a fuck.


Very good album highly recommend.


Some of the best bars of '89, but the production feels a bit late to the game, like production more from '87 or '88 at the latest.
