AllMusic Review by

Released only a few months after MC Breed's Big Baller album in 1995, The Best of MC Breed compiled a few of the best tracks from each of his five albums released at the time. All of Breed's best-known songs are here: from MC Breed & DFC (1991) you get "Ain't No Future in Yo' Frontin'" and "Just Kickin' It"; from The New Breed (1993) "Gotta Get Mine," "Everyday Ho," and "Tight"; from Funkafied (1994) "Seven Years" and "Late Nite Creep (Booty Call)"; and from Big Baller (1995) "Game for Life" and "Real MC." There are also a few tracks exclusive to this compilation: "Aquapussy," "Well Alright," a remix of "Teach My Kids," and unreleased versions of "This Is How We Do It" and "Ain't Too Much Worried." Breed's second album, 20 Below, is practically ignored here, unless you count the unreleased version of "Ain't Too Much Worried," which appeared on that album in its normal version; however, since 20 Below is perhaps the artist's least remembered and most forgettable album, it's really shouldn't be a major concern. After all, everything you really need is here, including the big hits like "Ain't No Future in Yo' Frontin'" and "Gotta Get Mine," plus a few exclusive tracks as a bonus. Overall, this is a perfect distillation of Breed's first half-decade of work. [Originally released in late 1995, The Best of MC Breed was re-released in late 2001 in the wake of Breed's biggest hit in years, "Let's Go to the Club."]
