Album Review
Vince Macias
Reviewed 2003-09-06
San Francisco hip hop...Rugged production with slightly left-field lyrics and hard flows.

Beat is on the disjointed, funky tip. Bouncy with weird crunchy noises. One of those beats just made for a cipher. Z-Man comes with decent battle lyrics; his flow is KILLING it though. To paraphrase Prodigy (from Mobb Deep, not the group fool.): he raps like nobody can fuck with him. Best moment would probably be the "Please don't give me an accapella/I'll explode like a seagull who swallowed an Alka-seltzer"-line. Not too impressive in writing but check the delivery. The hook is a little corny but I think it helps accentuate the "I don't give a fuck"-style of his delivery. Dope shit.

Buckle Up:
More mellow production, deep bass and simple guitar on the menacing tip. Once again, check Z-Man's flow. The production is nice, but it's one of those beats that would be boring without quality vocals over it. Solid track, but I'm feeling "Z-Mutiny" more because of it's hype-ness.
