Title: Twinz- Conversation
Post by: AlerG on July 04, 2001, 04:23:09 PM
Alright i picked this cd up in 99 and previous to that i had only heard these dudes on warren g's tracks and i thought they were tight, so i copped the album and this is what i thought.

1. Conversation #1- "it's just a lil somethin jus to let you know/that the real chronic smoke is on the go/", this is kind of like an intro and a skit at the same time, i like the way it kicks off the cd.

2. Round & Round- From the moment that this track begins it is nothing but summertime bumping in your ride material. Nothing less than a classic with a dope chorus and dope versus, doesn't get much better than this on the left coast. 5/5

3. Good Times- Oh God could you start off a cd better than with these 2 classics. This track is a reminissing track and the first time i heard it, it gave me goosebumps because i can really relate to it with one of my boys. The beat is sooo tight i can't even explain it, and the lyrics fit the beat to a gem. I even like this song better than the first track. 5/5

4. 4 Eyes 2 Heads- Well this one was produced by Priest "Soopafly" Brooks. The beat is off the meatracks and so are the lyrics. But the chorus is a real turn off but the rest of the song makes it a track you cannot skip. I just can't take the chorus. 3/5

5. Jump To This- Pure G-Funk shit right here. It really reminds me of "The Dove Shack" off of G Funk Era. The lyrics are average, and the chorus is nothing special just "who can make em jump to this". Good track though. 3.5/5

6. Eastside LB feat. Warren G- Well this is another one of those classics. I think this song is incredible before it even comes on if you've heard it already. Just looking at the back of the cd and seeing that this is the next song will have you anticipating it sooo much that ya drawls'll be wet. The chorus is all Warren G and it's sick. The lyrics are sick. This is what i call the longbeach anthem, cause that's really what it is. 5/5

7. Sorry I Kept You feat. Warren G- This shit is G-Funk like every other song on here. It isn't bad but it isn't a amazing song but it definately doesn't deserve to be skipped. I love the chorus by Warren G, he's sooo smooth. And the lyrics are on point like always by the Twinz. 3.5/5

8. Conversation #2- Just a skit, nothing worth talking about.

9. Journey Wit Me feat. Dove Shack- This shit reminds me alot of "summertime in the LBC. Great little bassline to this track with a great chorus by the shack and the lyrics are always on point. Maddd G-Funk shit again. 4/5

10. Hollywood- This one features that chick from "Super Soul Sis" i think. This is another really tight G-Funk track. The chorus is good but could get annoying but it's cool if you don't overplay it. The lyrics are good by all. I think this is definately think this is a very decent track overall. 3.5/5

11. 1st Round Draft Pick feat. Warren G- Warren does the chorus "going, going, gone/you'd better raise up cause ain't no telling when it's on". This track all together is sick. The lyrics, chorus, bassline, and beat are all tight and on point. 4/5

12. Conversation #3- Just another skit, nothing to talk about.

13. Don't Get It Twisted feat. New Birth- I think this is the worst track on the cd but it ain't that bad. Everything is tight as fuck but the chorus is shitty and just sucks, and it brings the song from a 4/5 to about a 3/5. 3/5

14. Pass It On feat. Warren G- Awesome way to finish off the album. Warren on the chorus again like the rest of his appearences on the album. Tight ass G-Funk shit right here where it all comes together and forms a real good track. 4/5

This is definately a perfect follow up to the other G-Funk release that year G Funk Era. There is nothing but G-Funk on here. 3 classic tracks elevate the album to another level and a bunch of dope tracks to keep the foundation stable. This cd is maddd underrated is basically just plain unheard of if you ask me. If it was promoted better and all 3 of the classic songs were released than i have no doubt that this cd could've gone double platinum. If you loved G Funk Era than there is no way that you should be without this cd because when i picked it up i instantly fell in love with it from the first song. This is the most bumpin yet chillen shit you can find, it's G-Funk baby. Nowadays we lack great albums like this and i think it was overlooked because of it's timing of release. Doggystyle and G Funk Era were still maddd hot and Dogg Fodd and Friday were about to drop. I would have to say that this cd can rank among those other cds i've listed, and any fan of WestCoast cannot and i can't stress enough CANNOT go without this shit, peace.
