MC Eiht - We Come Strapped
« on: May 23, 2002, 06:12:40 PM »
MC Eiht – We Come Strapped

1. Niggas that kill…A mix between an intro and an opening track.  Nice mix of a bassline and instrumentation.  4/5
2. Def wish III intro
3. Def wish III…A diss aimed at DJ Quik.  Tight lyrics.  Good diss track.  Beat sounds similar to the opening track.  4.5/5
4. Take 2 wit me…As with the previous track, the beat consists of a bassline and a mix of different instruments.  Works well with Eiht’s verses.  4/5
5. All for the money…Simple beat with a loop consisting of a hard hitting bassline and a couple of plucking notes of a guitar.  Smooth, laidback flow.  5/5
6. Compton cyco…Faster beat than previous tracks.  Eiht flows well to it.  4/5
7. Niggas make the hood go round…Straight gangsta sounding track with that classic production that usually accompanies an MC Eiht song.  4.5/5
8. Nuthin’ but high…An interlude.  Not much to it, but I love the smooth beat.  3.5/5
9. We come strapped…Good production.  The tambourine in the loop is a nice touch.  Lyrics on point.  Goes well with beat.  4/5
10.   Can I still kill it?…Sequel to the song on CMW’s album.  Nice, laidback fuck song.  Smooth production.  4/5
11.   Goin’ out like geez…Classic MC Eiht song.  Production fits his style perfectly.  4/5
12.   Nuthin’ but the gangsta…Tight bangin’ beat with a piano loop.  Features Spice 1 and Redman who represent well.  4/5
13.   Hard times…Slow Eiht flow to match slow beat.  He puts it down.  4/5
14.   Compton bomb…High quality production, using many different elements to compose the beat.  So many different instruments are used here.  4/5
15.   2 tha westside…Outro.  Not much to the beat.  3/5

OVERALL…9.5/10

Nearly perfect CD.  Play the CD straight through without skipping a track.  Production is of top-notch quality.  So many different sounds and instruments are used on one beat, they just sound amazing.  Straight gangsta rhymes from Eiht.  You can’t ask for much more of an album.

Damn '94 was an ill ass year fo' sho! So many classics dropped that year. Regulate... G-Funk Era and this album being the stand-outs from the West Coast in that year. Eiht brought nothing but gangsta shit on this album. DJ Slip handled the production amazingly. The only problem I have with this album is very minor and that's at the beginning of every song Eiht says "Gyeah! 8-Hype, Lil' Hawk and Bird..." LOL! Otherwise this album is one of my favorites from the West.

Yeah, those shout outs get old.  That's one thing I don't like about the album.

Yeh this review is on point, the best songs that stood out when I first heard the album were Niggas Make The Hood Go Round and All For The Money

the production on this album still stands up today....................over 10 years since it was released

i love the stand-up bass they used. gives it that full, thick sound

but hard times is my fav track
Always talkin bout the cash he got, the little pesos for shows
And God knows his materialistic raps and wack flows
are like Stay Free pads, fake V.I.P. rappers get garbage disposed
Unrecouped for his flamboyance and reflection
He's leasin rentin and frontin

This album is one of the best westcoast albums ever!  I was real dissapointed in the record they put out after that.  I think it was called Death Threats, but whatever it was called, it wasn't even half as good as We Come Strapped.
