This album has been delayed a few times but it should be released for definite on the 17th. It has been a while since I heard anything off of this, the first was of course 'Unify' featuring Snoop and Slick Rick in which I'm still hearing Rick disses Snoop but anyway.

I'm not going to pretend, after hearing 'Unify' I started to lower my expectations of the. Never the less, good ol' Capri managed to change that.

The compilation is like a mixtape or a Funk Flex mix CD except it's full of only exclusive tracks with a interludes. Tracks on this CD tend to grow on you, the majority aren't going to grab you the first time you hear them, with the exception of 'One On One' by Ras Kass and Punchline. That track is definitely one of the albums best, they both rap well and the lyrics are great.

Another highlight is the party cut 'When We Party' featuring Luke, it's a typical 2 Live Crew style track and it's a track, which makes you feel like partying. 'Loud And Clear' with the Lost Boyz is okay, nice beats and average rhymes but nothing that special.

'Block Party' featuring Big Pun and Noreaga is a nice track. The beats are simplistic but effective, Noreaga does do what we all dislike him doing which is rhyme about nothing. Capri rhymes on this and comes off surprisingly well, he doesn't wail out anything (like he usually does). Pun rhymes well yet doesn't seem to be that bothered about how he sounds.

'Soundtrack To The Streets' featuring Nas didn't appeal to me too much about 2 months ago but it has definitely grown on me, it sounds a lot better on a CD than an old turntable or cassette tape.

KRS comes off excellently on the track 'Do Or Die' he sounds like he's looking for a battle. I wonder who with...

The album features some weird interludes but you'll find out for yourself if you buy the CD

On the whole Capri has come out with a pretty cool compilation.
