By the time Born Suspect came out, Chris Rock was practically a household name thanks to Saturday Night Live and a string of critically praised stand-up stints across the country. This album takes some of Rock's earliest material and only reveals a slight glimpse of things to come. All of the obvious attacks that have become so familiar in Rock's repetoire are evident here, but it serves as an interesting document of how evolved not only Rock became with his comedic delivery but also with his signature charasmatic delivery on stage.
