This quartet of rappers' first 6-track mini-album was a bit naff, the band not really deciding whether to settle on rock-rap with power chords et al or go for the funkier stuff. Well the funk's won out and producer Fred Hammond (the Comissioned man) has come up with a set of torrid dance tracks that kick hard. Chris 'D-Vine MC' Williams is the most effective rapper specializing in some delightfully rapid tongue twisters and though the lady Kathy 'Virtuous MC' Sims is less effective her occasional interjections give a nice counterbalance. The programming is hot with plenty of rhythmic variations, the use of sampled fragments effective and often witty and the lyrics straight-in-your-face proclamations. Superior gospel rap.
