AllMusic Review by

Surveying nearly a decade of albums, EPs, and singles (from 1993 to 2002), the untouchable Queens duo collects 12 of their hottest street anthems into the best-of compilation CLASSIC NUTS VOL. 1. The Beatnuts’ finely-crafted productions have served as a direct inspiration for such rap radio favorites as J-Lo, P. Diddy, and Fat Joe while their hardcore lyrics blend gangsta violence with an irreverent party-oriented mentality. CLASSIC NUTS VOL. 1 includes such hits as “Off the Books” and “Watch Out Now,” and features collaborations with Method Man, Big Pun, Triple Seis, Cuban Link, and Greg Nice.
