The Fredwreck produced tracks and a couple of others are straight bangers. The rest is sadly average or horrible.  At best this album is a 3.5/5

If you could take the most lyrical tracks from Kuruption, the theme from Tha Streetz (DPGC guests, etc) and the production from Space Boogie and put it all together, you would have what most would want from Kurupt. Even though I consider Tha Streetz a personal classic, musically Space Boogie was on some other shit. Futuristic west coast shit.

Hate On Me with Soopafly was the best track on the whole album....Can't Go Wrong w/ DJ Quik was good as well.  Still, wasn't as good as Streetz but I don't think any Kurupt album will ever be as good as that album, having the whole DPGC on there was something that won't be repeated this day and age.

as an album it was a total mess.

it still has some nice songs though which saves it. it also has its over and some straight garbage, some bad guestspots, and no cohesiveness..

^how was it a total mess as an album? it had a theme and the theme stuck all the way through. you may say it's not your style, but calling it a total mess is off. there's nothing inconsistent about this near classic...PeACe

Great album, but there was a few real weak cuts on it like "It's Over", that shit was garbage. "Space Boogie" is still one of my favorite albums from Kurupt though. Actually, i'm gonna bump this album right now. I'd like to see a new Kurupt album that's mostly produced by Fredwreck. "On, Onsite" is one of Fred's best beats.

Lyrically it does slip a bit. For every The Hardest or On Site, you have a It's Over or The World. The song with Everlast was all over the place too lyrically as well to me. The concepts were there, just not executed the best at times.

It definitly stuck to the Futuristic G Funk, very similar style in production and it flows well

There a couple of tracks it could do with out


That was my favourite period from the dogg pound, D&G, RAW and Space Boogie

Yeah me too, that's one of my top 5 Soopafly songs of all time.  Both of them come at the hoes so hard on that one it's incredible.  They don't make rap like that anymore.

That was the problem IMO..."It's Over" was the lead single, and the reason alot of heads skipped over this album....When I first heard that joint, I was like, "what the fuck?!"..lol...but the rest of the album was dope!

I definitely agree with the original poster.

It's a 3.5/5 to 4/5

That's a Strong Banger/Near Classic.

Giving this a listen again... I liked it but not as much as Streets.

I actually liked that "It's Over" track.  Cool upbeat track and Natina sounds nice on it and bitch is fine!!!

The track "Space Boogie" was a banger.  Remember I played the fuck out of that song when I bought this album.

I'll drop thoughts again here later after I give it a listen again.  Been awhile since I've bumped this one.

When the album dropped, there were 3 different collector versions that came out, as well..the three collector versions each had differnt bonus tracks. One version had "Bitches" with Butch Cassidy, one had "Have Fun" with Tha Liks, and one had "The Life I Lead"...........all three bonus tracks are pretty tight.

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.

ur crazy man, never ever ever ever ever was the production no way near as dope as streetz  :D

Nothing funny about that...I personally think the production on this album can easily compare to the production on "Tha Streetz"...lyrically, "Tha Streetz" takes the cake, but "Space Boogie" had top-notch production and i can see why someone would prefer the "Space Boogie" sound over that of "Tha Streetz"...PeACe

There were 2 bonus tracks. Bitches and another one that had J-Ro from the Liks on it as well I believe.

Aiight, i only have "Bitches" on my copy. I really think "Game Iz Game" should have been on this album, i'm pretty sure it's a leftover from "Space Boogie".

Yeah it is. Okka, have you ever heard this track?

The Life I Live


I was reading a review on RapReviews on this album and it says it was also a bonus track. I have NEVER heard this track, sounds like something from the Kuruption era but it is dope.

It all depends on what kind of sound you're into. Tha Streetz had great production, don't get me wrong, but I just love the bass guitar and other futuristic sounds on SB.
