Quite simply, this is one of the best records, hip-hop or otherwise, ever.
This album has songs that to this very day will pick me up or inspire me when I'm bummed out.
For example, a few verses from the outstanding track called "Escape." After stressed out verses describing some of the problems we all face in daily life, the song doesn't end like you might expect at first. There comes a powerful reply right away -- which is empowering and simple --
"So you want to quit your job, but you don't have the funds?
Take a sick day off, and find a new one,
...and the song continues:
"You don't owe noone a thing, but you owe yourself!"
Self-empowering and truthful, WHODINNI were honest, introspective. Like on the track "FRIENDS," where the group is striving to define what makes for true friendship--
"...and if you ask me, you know I couldn't be much help,
because a friend is somebody you judge for yourself."
But don't get it twisted, because most of these songs are wicked party jams that can still rock the house. These tracks aren't nerdy, boring or overly intellectual in any way!
Get this record -- it serves as the perfect 100%-effective antidote to the substandard negativity of today's fantasy-ridden rap!
