i admit i purchased this album because i knew about shook ones (pt2). that may not even be the best track on the album. this album gives a great incite of life in queens. prodigy produces some quality rhymes (for me verse 1 on trife life stands out), havoc can rap too but his production is perfect for the themes. the middle section (from tracks 3-9) really makes the album. look out for the big noyd verse on give up the goods.
