Yeah that cover sucks, and its too bad death row wasn't behind that release, if that came out like it was suppose to on death row with all those other cuts from "tha ep" on it, that shit would have been fire.

Kurupt also said in a interview he approved the koch version that came out because he did not want all of those dpg disses included on the album that ended up on the ep.

it was still a real good album. after listening to the scrapped songs, we didnt miss much except for Holocause 3000 which had already been out for a long time anyway.

Yeah.  I was going to ask as well.  Does anyone have the original tracklist for this that was posted on Amazon.com before the revised version was released by Koch?

The original tracklist is tight, but I don't think two versions of "One Things Fa Sho" is necessary.

Yeah.  I'm tryin' to put together my own mix of the album, combining the FTP version and the Koch version.  And I'm thinkin' about throwin' on that "Frontline" track from the "SHTTBG," bootleg and changing the track with Pac to the version that just leaked.  But some of the songs are going to have to go because it's waaaaaaay too long to fit on a cd.  I already cut "I'm Back."  And that "One Thing's Fa Sho Reprise" will probably be the next to get the axe.  I kinda want to keep that "Calico" track on there though, even though it wasn't on the original tracklist.  That's one of my favorite songs on the album.

why are there 2 covers?

They are two projects. One is the official Death Row album and one is a bootleg with only DPG-era material released back in '02.

I assume since this is pretty much a bootleg that it is ok to post the link? If not then remove it mods.

Yeah "Calico" is actually a Dayton Family song and "You Fuckin With The Best" is a Bang Em Smurf & Domination track.

Pretty much. Although I'm happy they added those songs, because I really like both of them.

I got to be honest "Against The Grain" really is a solid release, I was really impressed with it when it dropped.

I agree.  Although if you look at the track lists from both the Koch release and the FTP version, I think there are songs that could stand to be cut from both of them.  There's also some really tight songs on both of them.

Are there better quality cuts of the FTP floating around than the 160kbps ones?
