And that homey who I say is one of hip-hop's elite is DJ Muggs, who after several years working as Cypress Hill's DJ, and moonlighting as one of the most underrated producers in hip hop, came full-force with the 'Soul Assassins' compilation back in '97. With an excellent cast of MCs, including some of the best in hip hop, and Muggs' ominous, eerie, and stoned-out production behind them, you get exactly what you'd expect from this: a dark, morbid, and TRIPPY journey into the darkened heart of gangsterism.
There is no reason at all to downgrade this album. Not even the wide array of diverse artists including Dr. Dre, the Wu-Tang Clan's RZA and GZA, KRS-One, Mobb Deep, Wyclef Jean, and Cypress Hill, makes for an inconsistent effort. Muggs' uniform production style succeeds in tying the album together perfectly. Most collaboration albums, like the dreadful Ruff Ryders compilations, end up being spoiled by the number of cooks, but that is not the case with 'Soul Assassins Chapter 1'. Muggs managed to do what Swizz Beatz still has not achieved with his posse albums, and that is to find a perfect balance in the wide array of artists, enough that all of them actually sound GOOD working together, and then use that to your full advantage with some bangin', in this case West Coast lowrider beats. This is something to blaze ganja to like Cypress Hill would, to bump in your car while you're rollin' tree'd out, or to get wild and jumpin' at a straight gangsta party with.
Unfortunately, 'Soul Assassins Chapter 2' didn't live up to the high standard that this one set. 'Course excellence can't really be eclipsed, but they couldn't done a lil' better. If you haven't copped this yet, you don't know what you're missing. If you bought 'Chapter 2' an' you heard how wack an' inconsistent it was, don't let that discourage you from inquiring 'bout this classic, 'cause it will keep your head noddin' fa' days.

4.0 out of 5 stars Muggs gets down on this ablum. May 18 2000
Format:Audio CD
This album allows Muggs to shine. He has nothing holding him to recreate the Cypress Hill sound. He was able to expand the horizons of his talent and experiment with new stuff. We get to see how his beats mix with the flows of other MCs. It's great!
The Puppet Master with Dr. Dre and B-Real opens this album with a bang. Dre's hard hitting lyrics flow smoothly over Muggs beats. Not the deep pounding bass of Dre's production, but harder stuff than normally found on a Cypress Hill album.
John 3:16 with Wyclef was definitely a departure from Muggs usual fare. Combined with the Wyclef's lyrics, this is a laid back protest against violence. Great stuff.
Probably my favorite song on the album is La the Darkman's Devil in a Blue Dress. La and Muggs seem to mesh perfectly. This was a seamless composition that had me listening to the song over and over. This song alone made the album worth buying.
I hope to see Muggs do another album like this. His production skills are among the best in the industry and it's great hearing other MCs layin' their vocals over his beats.

4.0 out of 5 stars underrated Jan. 7 2001
By swish
Format:Audio CD
dj muggs has been one of the most underrated producers in hip hop since cypress came out with their first disc. with this cd he showcases his ability to make his tracks fit the artist. with a slew of some of todays best mcs from the west, east and south, u cant go wrong. songs that stand out are goodie mobs decision, decisions which comes across with a positive message, especiall cee-lo's verse. the rza and gza spit hot lyrics over an amped up beat and wu-affiliate la the darkman comes with a bangin song of his own. mobb deep and infamous mobb deliver hot tracks as usual and call of da wild, though ive never heard of him before has a nice little song also. wyclef ends the album on a positive note with his song john 3:16. this album is not like your average cypress hill album, it is a nicely put together and talented hip hop collective that deserves some recognition

Muggs' metamorphisis(so far), First the funk based Cypress Hill debut, then the rap anthems of Black Sunday, followed by the ground breaking Hip-Hop of Temples of Boom and now this! A collage of eerie, hypnotic Trip-Hop beats masterfully blended with vocals from mic murderers such as Mobb Deep, the GZA and Goodie Mobb(best track on album).
