5.0 out of 5 stars Simply THE best hip-hop album ever, 10 Jan 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Og Original Gangster (Audio CD)
Although I was into hip-hop well before this album for me this is the greatest rap album of all time,surpasssing even NWA's straight outta compton.Ice-T's lyrics and his rapping style are simply pure class and many new hip-hop acts should refer to this album and see what real rap is about-not the commercial r'nb sound it is today.The lyrics are real and many songs simply tell a story in all the rugged harshness you would expect from the man himself.In a word-fantastic.A must buy for any rap fans collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gangster Rap with a big sense of humour, 4 Jan 2003

(HALL OF FAME REVIEWER)    (REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Og Original Gangster (Audio CD)
Ice t was at the turning point of his career with OG, and it shows, although never restrained, this seems louder and certainly has a lot more mainstream crossover appeal than earlier efforts.
New Jack Hustler is a great track as featured in the film New jAck City, in which of course Ice-T made his big carrer switch, by far the outstanding track of the album.
There are some great samples throughout, and the whole vibe is extremely west coast, shot through with Ice Ts cutting humour, and inevitably his ego.

5.0 out of 5 stars A real Gangster, 26 July 2002
This review is from: Og Original Gangster (Audio CD)
Ice T is, as the title suggests, the ORIGINAL Gangster, who has actually done most of the things he rhymes about in his songs. His anger and rage is clear through this CD, and it is a CD NOT to play in the car, unless you want arrested on road rage charges! Best tracks are 'Microphone Contract' and the superb 'New Jack Hustler',taken from the film 'New Jack City', and has one of the best hooks/baselines in rap...anyway check it out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Gold!, 8 Jan 2013
This review is from: Og Original Gangster (Audio CD)
An excellent rap album from a badass perpetrator who has actually been there and seen all the s*** he's rhyming about; awesome lyrics and killer beats. Ice T is one of the top 3 greatest rappers ever, along with Chuck D and Snoop Dogg. Nobody else even comes close to these guys. The rap/metal crossover track is a bit dated and crap - but the rest is solid muthaf kin' gold!

4.0 out of 5 stars Ice is the real deal, 3 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Og Original Gangster (Audio CD)
Good album considered by many to be one of his best. It is good but i find home invasion to be more hard core. (personal preference) This is still a must for any rap collection. I would recommend Ice T above most modern day rap stars and his stuff still sounds fresh and believable. Get yourself an education in rap and buy Ice T if you collection lacks it. So many modern day rap songs rip lyrics 'in homage' to Ice. The quote from first impression has been used so many times in other songs its unreal.

5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive gangster rap album, 27 Mar 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Og Original Gangster (Audio CD)
This is Ice-T doing what he does best. Many have followed but it was Ice-T that started it all off, the original OG. Funky beats and motivational lyrics produce window lowering re-actions from even the most placid of drivers. I would recommend you try Dr Dre - The Chronic, Snoop Dogg - Doggystyle, Tupac - are you still down, Jay-Z - anything recent with Al Pacino/Scarface samples.
