This is the type of 90s rap I can get behind. The atmosphere so calm and their flows sound so perfect. My favorite from the trio is probably Mecca, I think she hard af. I'd describe this as like prime time Atcq but a bit better.
i remember my dad used to spin this on his PSX all the time.
Unbelievably chill, joyous and groovy. Drags on for a bit and the second half is considerably weaker than the first one but a 90s hip-hop classic nonetheless. Ishmael Butler can do no wrong. Never fails to put a smile on my face. Great for a sunny day.

Highlights: It's Good To Be Here, Pacifics, Where I'm From, Time & Space (A New Refutation Of)
FAVORITE TRACKS: Pacifics, Rebirth of Slick (Cool Like Dat, Nickel Bags, Jimmi Diggin Cats, What Cool Breezes Do, Where I'm From.

Really enjoyed the jazzy and surprise-filled beats, catchy lyrics, and melodic flow. Pacifics and Birth of Slick are my favorites from this album. I never felt my head stop bopping while listening to this. Reachin' is a real pleasure to listen to.
