Georgia Rage Hit Squad, Vol. 1 Review

by Bret Love

None of the artists on this 20-track compilation are quite ready for the Big Time. But the album is a fairly well-rounded overview of Atlanta's urban music underground, moving from the aggressive hip-hop attitude of the Southside Hustlaz to the tough R&B crooning of Nia to the G-funk style of Eddie Seawood with Children of the Cornbread. All of the tracks are relatively competent, with Project Playaz's "Buck With Me," Gangsta Blac's "Duck Yo Azz," and the 404 Soldiers' "You Better Duck" standing out as catchy jeep-thumping anthems that hip-hop heads could bob to. But ultimately, nothing here is original enough to stick in your head long after the CD is over, except perhaps the nagging question of what any of this has to do with the Georgia Rage, a little-known minor league football organization.
