AllMusic Review by

Spinning through almost three-dozen crack underground tracks in less than an hour, DJ Graffiti displays deft hands on the decks as well as an eye to the acts and tracks that alternative hip-hop fans want to hear. Amidst shout-outs from Dilated Peoples and Slum Village (among others), Graffiti drops Jurassic 5's so-new-it's-shrink-wrapped old-school anthem "What's Golden," the solid Blackalicious/Latyrx joint "It's Going Down," and selected excellence from J-Live, Mr. Lif, Talib Kweli, DJ Jazzy Jeff, and KRS-One. And next to his selection skills, his scratching and spinbacks show plenty of flair as well. Graffiti even keeps it real, Michigan style, choosing a track from Ann Arborite Dabrye to play over a short spoken-word from Eminem. Recommended.
