Oddly enough, Everybody Wants Some brought Gucci Crew its most successful single. "Five Dollar High," a Top 20 rap hit, differed from most of the group's previous material. Rather than being based on booming bass and group choruses, the song is rather cacophonic and jumbled, with a big swipe from Grandmaster Flash's "White Lines." "Everybody Wants Some" and "Can We Get Funky?" return the group to its old formula, with good results. It's just another Gucci Crew record, with mediocre tracks surrounding the highlights. Several bonus tracks (e.g., "Sally [That Girl]," "Shirley," "The Cabbage Patch") were added to the CD edition of the album, which acts as a miniature greatest-hits package.
