......to those at Wideawake/Death Row: "You guys with conspiracy theories need to chill. This release was mixed mastered and on CD from 1995. Literally all we did was take it out and remove beware of my crew and 6 shooter (since it was on the boxset) and put on the Out The Moon [Daz Remix]. Anyone who thinks we mixed or mastered any of this is sadly mistaken. This release wasn't almost complete back in 95, it was complete in 1995. Mixed mastered and sequenced."


They are sorely mistaken.

I donít know whatís more frighteningÖ. that they are so disorganized they donít know this isnít a mastered release or that they are so incompetent they canít discern with a quick listen that this isnít mastered. And theyíre wrong about it being fully mixed, the lack on de-essing on several songs is a dead giveaway. Fully mixed by the recording engineer maybe to demo to the label, but not mixed by a pro like Tommey D or someone for worldwide releaseÖ the way Death Row would have done it.

I could show them 100 examples of what Iím talking about but all they really need to do is go to a record store, buy the gridlocked soundtrack, play ďOut The MoonĒ then immediately play the same song off this LBC Crew album. Hear the difference? Thatís what you call professional mixing and mastering.

I canít fault Wideawake completely at this point, they have tried. The problem is they just donít know what theyíre doing. They did master that Snoop album but the problem was the songs werenít properly mixed priorÖ so it still  ended up sounding horrible.

Iím going to have this album professionally mastered and posted for download here on the site (after the album is released) then we can talk about it. I may even send it to them and if they like it Iíll work for free.


Looking forward to this. On a second listen I noticed the volume levels were way low. And ya the mixing wasn't perfect either BUT I'm just thankful this album made it as far as it did so that we wouldn't get another WideAwake release that sounded like ass. That's funny they are claiming that it was mastered in 95 because I remember seeing WA advertise this album as being REMASTERED. Well it looks like it wasn't mastered then or now. They're pretty bad at lying. I'm done bitching though, I'm happy with the quality we're getting and am optimistic about what Efrain can do for the album.

I am really looking foward to your version!  I was going to do this myself as the bass sounds horrible for most of the songs, overall sound is flat and bass is real hard.  I was kind of surprised as the doggystlye 96 and 6 shooter sounded much better to me, I figured they would at least be on that level.  anyway, like everyone esle, I'm just glad we finally have this classic material in our hands.  if it wasnt for WA we'd never gotten the chance to clean it up and make it sound good hehe...so I support them...

Dope album, def agree it would have gone platinum back in '96...idiots.

I got this on iTunes were there any liner notes or anything with hard copies? I wanted to see production creds and sheiiiit. Can anyone hook that up?

Too bad there weren't a few more unheard tracks though but I guess some got effed up by Lil C Style.

Well, unfortunately it wasn't at Best Buy... I figured it wouldn't be, but it wouldn't hurt to check.

I probably wouldn't have noticed this until much later had you not mentioned it, but I agree. I've really given up any hope of a properly mixed and mastered WIDEawake release at this point. I'm just gonna have to change my perspective I guess and just be glad they are releasing material that is of better sound quality than the bootlegged/ leaked stuff and tracks we would have never heard at all if it weren't for WA.

Damn I just found out last year that they were still on it.  They still sound tight as hell.

I wonder why they didn't list Soopafly, The Low Lifes and others on the features. WA got shit fucked up on the booklet credits too.

whats the status of re-master Efrain?

I'll have it up by Tues or Wednesday of this week. I'm working with some new software (in addition to what I always use) that sounds incredible but I'm trying to get it just right. Here's a little preview...  (final might be a slightly different)

That damn WideAwake can't do anything right.

They misspelled Dave Swang's name wrong in the credits...repeatedly. And they missed giving Big Tray Dee and Deadly Threat their feature credits.
