The Get Wiggy! collection features a variety of underground rap artists, most of them from the West Coast. There are a few big-name artists here that might turn some heads, most notably E-40, South Park Mexican, Fat Joe, Frost, Coolio, B-Legit, and Ritchie Rich. However, most of these artists only spit one verse while lesser-known rappers such as Baby Bash fill out the album; in fact, Baby Bash is all over this album, rapping on the majority of the songs. A few producers handle the majority of the beats: Smoke, Philly Blunt, and Johnny Z, in addition to a few others who produce one track each. In the end, it's unclear what this album is intended to be, a various-artists collection or a Baby Bash album. Either way, Get Wiggy! isn't that impressive of a collection, even with the big names, mostly because of how random the album seems. You're not sure exactly what Get Wiggy! is suppose to be, since it features rappers from all coasts and has no overlying theme or concept. It's perhaps best to appreciate the sometimes engaging guest appearances and not get consumed with this album's problems.
