DFC - Things in the hood
« on: May 27, 2003, 10:36:11 PM »


DFC – Things in the Hood

1. A piece of mind…Intro done by Bushwick Bill.  Evil shit.  4/5
2. Put your locs on…Has a real west coast feel to it.  Gangsta lyrics.  Tight hook.  4.5/5
3. Caps get peeled…Laidback song with MC Eiht.  It definitely has the MC Eiht feel.  4/5
4. Mo love…Another west coast influeced production.  Good lyrics and hook.  4.5/5
5. Things in the hood…Straight gangsta beat with Nate Dogg singing the hook and a Snoop Dogg sample.  4.5/5
6. Pass the hooter…Featuring Warren G.  Hard bass.  Tight flow.  3.5/5
7. 2-2 the chest…A+ hook. Kinda sounds like Kokane.  Dope song.  4/5
8. Death B-4 dishonesty…Good beat and decent lyrics.  3.5/5
9. Hands on my 9…Hook has an R&B/gangsta mix to it.  Bumpin’ song.  4/5
10.   Roll with the clan…Sounds like a party song.  One of the weaker points of the album.  3/5
11.   Digga bigga ditch…Almost sounds like a Dr. Dre produced song.  Dope hook.  3.5/5
12.   You can get the dick…Smooth ass track.  Lyrics flow well over the track.  3.5/5
13.   Da bomb…Beat sounds a bit repetetive and the lyrics are somewhat weak.  Weak hook.  2/5
14.   Things in the hood remix…A total remix with some new lyrics and beat.  Has a ‘happier’ feel to it instead of the gangsta feel.  4/5

OVERALL…4/5

A very under-rated album.  DFC is from Detroit, but the whole CD has a west coast sound.  All gangsta tracks with some very well thought of hooks.  The quality of the tracks dwindle on the latter part of the album.

Nice review homie - a classic album to me. Caps Get Peeled is such a smooth track... that was the song that sold it for me.

I wish my copy had the remix of Things In Da Hood; that was hot. Plus, did anyone hear the single remix of Digga Bigga Ditch, with the jazz piano?  :o

They represent Flint if you care... Got a song called These Flint Streets on their 2nd LP.  

And oh yeah, I love that Hand On My Nine track... sounds tight in ya car system.

I was actually thinking of picking this album up, I've seen it on the net for like $6.99 so i'll have to get it sometime.
