Cuddiez From the Crest, Vol. 1 is yet another hip-hop compilation featuring another underground rap scene. This particular scene is based around the Country Club Crest, a crew of rappers who include Da' Unda' Dogg, Mac Dre, and Tic Toc. The rapping is bland and generic, with none of the rappers really standing out or doing anything new. Despite some good production (especially on "Da Flizow"), nothing about this album makes it unique from the many similar compilations available. Fans of gangsta rap may find this interesting, and it is always nice to see a new scene put out an album, but this is strictly pedestrian and is not recommended for anyone but hardcore collectors.
