Consumer Guide Reviews:

Bow Down [Priority, 1996]
If you think East Coast Illuminati fantasies are silly, wait till you hear the "gangsta rap in it's highest form" that Ice Cube and two like-minded liars counter with. Not only that, they threaten to cut off the scrotum of "All the Critics in New York." Gosh, I sure hope they don't mean mine. D+

Terrorist Threats [Capitol, 2003]
So scabrous and sardonic it's cleansing ("Pimp the System," "Get Ignit") *
