Slim, Full Blooded and Magic all first appeared on C-Murder's Life Or Death (March 98)
Steady Mobb'n didn't appear on any NL album between their debut Premeditated Drama (may 97) and the I Got The Hookup OST (april 98), almost an entire year. My guess is P cut ties with em (business sense) after their debut flopped (in a year where NL albums sold like hotcakes), decided to keep them on the tank though later on. NL albums in 97 did have some beats by Bay Area producers K-Lou and DJ Darryl (Steady Mobb'ns affiliate) though, so NL still had some Westcoast feel in there, plus I think they did record some songs in Richmond still (the K-Lou and Darryl songs). DJ Darryl also produced Soulja Slim's Street Life and Steady Mobb'ns great NL comeback tune Call It Whatchu Want (IGTHU OST) in 98
Skull wasn't featured on any NL album in 97 except the Bout It OST. Had a short appearance on Silkk's Charge It 2 Da Game album and then a track on the IGTHU OST again. Those were his only guest appearances in 98, his album These Wicked Streets was a NL/Penalty Recordings collabo (he appeared in Penalty artist Noreaga's video NORE)
DJ Darryl & K-Lou also made some beats on this album right here I think, if I remember correctly K-Lou did "Going Through Somethangs", which is a crazy beat
Album is in heavy rotation again
No one here listenin to this classic ?
was listening to we riders today
that beat >
Mac's verse >
"I got my game from a nikka named vercy"
Any info on Vercy Carter, I heard he was a percy miller goon
„Going Through Somethangs“ is one of my most played songs atm, everyone came correct, but Mr Serv On was floatin on this.
Its one of the most aspects in NL history how he switched up his flow just a year later and became as hit or miss as silkk....
I HOLDS MY OWN LIKE IM PISSIN!!!!
the problem with silkk, serv-on and eventually big ed as well, was the change in direction of the beats they were given.
Classic album and has aged incredibly well
we need a no limit best to worst ranked albums thread from you breh
People talk about NL albums sounding dated now, but this ain’t one of them
"We Riders" is still . Don't think anyone's mentioned it. Also, "Keep Your Eyes On Your Enemies" is also. Mia's poetry on that one was kinda prophetic. Lyrically, it's easily one of P's best songs.
Agreed. Alooooot of Fiend/Mac influence in both songs, NL quality improved with both of em comin' in
