Kurupt - "Space Boogie" is an underrated NEAR CLASSIC...
« on: October 19, 2009, 02:41:06 PM »
I remember when this album first came out... Kurupt was 2 years removed from droppin a classic in "Tha Streetz iz a Mutha" and fresh off the "Up In Smoke Tour". The anticipation for "Space Boogie" was crazy.. Kurupt was even expected by many to take over the west with this album. When the album finally dropped, most heads weren't too pleased with Kurupts effort, claiming he fell off lyrically and that he album was a disappointment overall.......Now, 8 years later, can anyone say this album isn't bangin, front to back? Even the commercialized cuts sound hard compared to the commercialized songs we get nowadays. Honestly, this album was wayyyy under appreciated when it dropped and I hope heads are starting to see the value in it nowadays, cuz it may very well be considered a classic given some time 8)...PeACe

LMAO @ near classic, there are def some bangers on that shit like "bring back that g shit" "hardest" "on onsite" "just dont give a fuck" "at it again"




but calling it near classic is a joke

It was a very dope album, I think it just paled big time compared to Tha Streetz.

I disagree...the whole album flows together very well and u got that authentic DPG sound all the way through. All those tracks u named are hard as fuck, but u didnt even mention classic tracks like "Space Boogie", "On The Grind", "Gangstas", "Can't Go Wrong"...the album is extremely underrated, i think u should give it another spin, my dude...PeACe

The fact that it's being spoken of 8 years later should give it some consideration at being a classic not to mention the sick ass cuts the album had from beginning to end. Space Boogie, OnSite, Cant Go Wrong! The album is defenately classic worthy.

I love this album. It's almost as good as "Tha Streetz" imo. I think people don't like it only because it followed "Tha Streetz"

Yeah that's a good way of putting it, the production on this album was GREAT, better than Tha Streetz IMO, Kurupt's verses just weren't as solid.

Fredwreck on thus was the nuts. His production carried the album. Hardest Muthafuckas, Bring Back That G Shit, Space Boogie and a few more tracks on here were dope. But it feels like a half arsed effort to me. Kurupt was starting to lose it lyrically.

Kurupt's redundant lyrics about "gangsta shit" and telling bitches to "eat dicks" were the downfall of this album.

Lot of choice cuts for me. I only liked a certain amount.

I like Kuruption! & Streetz much better.

+1

Space Boogie was alright, but nothing really stood out and is classic to me or makes me even really want to put it on.  I'll listen to We Can Freak It and C-Walk from Kuruption 100 times before I'd even think about playing anything from Space Boogie.

Fredwreck is always droppin heat however for some reason for this album he fucking mudered it! Space boogie, onsite, the hardest muthafuckas all dope not to mention soopaflys cut. He'll even Jon B produced a heater. Minus the it's over track great song selection great beats great flow dope classic album.

This album is dope, so many bangers! There are a few cuts which keep it from being a classic though. How well did this album do commercially?

Oh and the short interlude after "Gangstas" is amazing, sounds like a Fredwreck beat, wish a full track was made out of that

but calling it near classic is a joke

a very solid album, but nowhere a "near classic".
