AllMusic Review by

Philadelphia rapper Schoolly D was among the earliest gangstas to generate censorship threats. This 1988 LP included lewd descriptions of genitalia, vivid commentary on drug use and its impact, plus "Gangster Boogie II" and "Black Man." Schoolly D's rapping was erratic and often seemed disjointed, while his rhymes hardly flowed. It was more chaotic than creative, but did manage to generate considerable East Coast controversy among more sedate types.
