AllMusic Review by

The ten-track mid-line collection On the Rap Tip is a little schizophrenic, bouncing between hardcore hip-hop and melodic crossover rap, but it's nevertheless an entertaining listen. There are some filler cuts that have been forgotten over the years, but there's also a number of terrific songs, including Tone-Loc's "Funky Cold Medina," De La Soul's "Me Myself and I," Slick Rick's "Teenage Love," Sir Mix-A-Lot's "Iron Man," EPMD's "So What Cha Sayin'" and NWA's epochal "Straight Outta Compton."
