Song by song summary for u:
1. D-Flo Shuttle
The moment you start playing this you know the CD will be good!
By this time in D.U.’s timeline Tupac had been initiated as a member, although this is his only rapping appearance on the whole album!
“D-Flo Shuttle” features a funked out saxophone bass line and a really catchy hook. Its one to sing along to!
A fantastic introduction into the CD!
2. Heartbeat Props
“Everybody get ready for the HEARTBEAT PROPS!”
The track is about DU giving props out to living black representatives in the media. The song takes up a pumping bass line another sung/ sampled hook and bridge with a few classy choral verses. Great song
3. No Nose Job
Humpty’s own song. Comically strung chords come as a standard and of course, Humpty Hump’s funny lyrics. And once again, disguised in its funny shell of a song, it also holds a deeper meaning, about how young kids are beginning to think they’re inferior because of the media
Funny and dope song. And check out the cutting at the end
4. Sons Of The P
Looking at the track time, this is another long jam at over 9 minutes long
And once again it’s another original DU beat. You will either like it or you wont.
If you like George Clinton’s voice you will be pleased to hear he graces the song with the DU emcees
This song is laid back. Like I said, you either like it or you don’t. You decide.
5. Flowin’ On The D-Line
I love this track. It has an almost Michael Jackson sounding beat.
Shock-G tells of a story when he was on the D-Flo shuttle!
Sadly its only one verse long with no chorus. Has some crazy cutting at the end

An album that will remain as effortlessly stylish, meaningful and humorous to listen to many years from now. So buy it this afternoon!
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
The lengthy concluding number "Good Thing We're Rappin'" doesn't do much for me. I find it to be too long and it's lack-luster structure strays from what made DU shine. I get the fact that they are paying homage to their love of music and how it has steered them away from another lifestyle, but in the delivery this becomes a mediocre Ice Cube narrative to my ears. Maybe the group was itching to try the "Too $hort" formula... it's not particularly awful, just sort of boring compared to the dizzying heights the rest of the album already took the listener.
I urge any serious music buff to re-visit the music of Digital Underground. I never fully appreciated their excellence until years later when my developed adult ear was capable of acknowledging just how clever, articulate and ahead of their times this group was. There is a sensitive politically conscious human message here. Shock G's charismatic, passionate delivery allows him to make deep statements without sounding preachy, or abrasive- in fact to the contrary he's selectively hilarious and easy to listen to on the whole.
I have yet to find a modern group this confident, creative and fun. Take the shuttle back to DU's early days... it is quite rewarding.
The CD was in excellent condition. Used? Not at all... the shrink wrap may have been taken off of but the CD itself was in superb shape. No scratches, no marks... nothing. I'm very impressed!!!
is definitely more of the same from the brilliant/mad minds at DU.
