AllMusic Review by

This album was first released locally in New Orleans in 1993, gaining tons of attention for Cash Money Records. It's been re-released now that Cash Money has a distribution deal and the rest of the nation can finally hear what started it all. Unpolished and raw with messy, cluttered beats and a bunch of Southern kids yelling into the microphone, this is about as real as it gets. Not surprisingly, it works really well for them on most of the tracks, although by the end of the album it's a bit tiresome. Most of the time they rap about their adeptness with girls, and truly it's hard to find them rapping about anything else here. Assuming "My 9" is about a gun proves to be only partially correct, as the track sees their entire weapons arsenal used for some hardcore sex. This is a must-have record for collectors and one of UNLV's better albums; those who are into the Cash Money label should check it out.
