AllMusic Review by

Gangsters & Bosses rounds up a number of the Dirty South's most well-known performers. While big-name rappers like Ludacris and Outkast are missing, there are a few popular names here like the Big Tymers ("Rally Up"), UGK ("I Wanna Be Free"), Lil Keke ("Hoggin the Lane"), C-Bo ("Don't Play That Shit"), South Park Mexican ("Illegal Amigos"), and Three 6 Mafia ("Doin What We Do"). In addition, West Coast gangsta rappers Spice 1 and the Outlawz contribute one song ("Turn the Heat Up"). Given the emphasis on the Dirty South and the number of well-known artists here, Gangsters & Bosses makes for a nice sampler of the Dirty South's darker side circa 2001.
