I sorta have some mixed feelings on this record. There are just as many great tracks as there are lackluster tracks. The whole project comes off as a little bit of both. Not to mention that the runtime is unnecessarily long. Despite that though, Mr. Hood is a good representation of the early days of hip-hop.

Yeaaahhhh you can tell this is Doom and Co in there learning phase, This album doesn't really stick out in comparison to most of what was being released in the early 90’s, its pretty basic, and a lot of these songs also blend together, like sometimes I would check how much longer a song was just to be surprised I was on the next track.

This is a very sample based album, which would later become a staple of Dumile's work. That said, nothing else on this album really sounds like DOOM. This album is very much a relic of its time, but it's still an enjoyable album. It could have been a lot shorter, though.

6.5/10

Best Track(s): Humrush, Nitty Gritty, Peachfuzz

Zev Love X isn't close to what he'll achieve later in his legendary career, but he and Sub Roc have a whole lot of fun on here. The sample-based production is a staple of DOOM's career that first pops up here. A must-listen for anyone going through Daniel Dumile's discography.
