I have been listening to this cd since I was in middle school (about 12 years ago). This cd just gets better with age. It makes me kinda sad that there isn't anything out there like it today. It's from a different time when people didn't have to rap about killing one another. Swass is all about having a good time. It's funny and entertaining and is totally meant to be taken lightly. You're supposed to be able to laugh and smile the whole time that you're rapping right along with Mix a lot and Kid Sensation. I would recommend it to anyone who is just looking for a different view of rap.

man, this album is phat. the title track, "F the BS", and "Buttermilk Bisquick", have more sweet raps than all of p-diddy's albums put together. mix-a-lot has been dropping tricked-out heat rocks longer than anyone in the biz, and it shows on this record. he has elevated himself to the level of Abraham Lincoln, Ghandi, and Hitler with his pure genius. nothing on earth has ever touched me in such a way as this sweet album. ever since i picked up the 12" lp ... i have been a better person. rap on, mixy, rap on, and let those B.G.'s eat your dust, you loc-ed out O.G.
holla

man, i'm tired of hearin' all you haters slam my boy mix-a-lot. he's the shizzl for rizzl, dog. porky-joe don't know what he's talking about. maybe if i dropped some "heat rocks" up in his a$$ he'd feel me. beeatch!
anyhoo, this album has so many sweet beats on it, i actually threw up the first time i heard it. i dropped my first copy in the urinal at school three days after i picked it up at cd whorehouse, so i haven't listened to it in about 8 months. however, i do know that my bowels are needing to move. i'll finish this review later. peace out-->

This has got to be the worst album I've ever heard. I used to listen to it in my garage when I was getting high and I thought it was fresh. Now, that I've gotten older and wiser I realize how much of a piece of [junk] album it is. Save your money for "Seminar". The only songs that are worth listening to are "Posse on Broadway" and "Rippin". Sir Mix-a-lot are a bunch of fags. Personally I think that Sir-Mix-Alot is a piece of [poop]! By the way, "Chief Boot-Knocka" has got to be one of the finest albums of modern time.

A Classic Old School Rap Album, But A Flawed Reissue... Oct. 4 2004
By Eric C. Baur - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Unfortunately, many people have pigeon-holed Sir Mix-A-Lot as a "Weird Al" style rapper who busts rhymes about big butts and buttermilk biscuits. Sadly, this just isn't true. Swass is a pristine example of old-school rap that was just starting to become mainstream when this ablum was initally released. As well, Mix-A-Lot helped bring Seattle to the rap mainstream when most artists were based either in New York or L.A.

I must admit that Swass is one of my favorite rap albums ever. Each song has it's own individual flavor. And although the subject matter (i.e. Biscuits, etc.) may be stupid by today's standards, the rhymes still flow nicely and are well thought-out. However, this reissue has a serious flaw that simply cannot be overlooked. The version of "Rippin'" contained on this release has been remixed and it isn't good. Although the primary beat is the same, it seems that Mix-A-Lot completely re-rapped the song to try and update it with "hipper" language. It doesn't flow well and pretty much ruins the song. This is huge because Rippin' was one of the great standout singles (along with Posse on Broadway and Buttermilk Biscuits) on Swass. What makes this even more perplexing is that none of the other songs on this reissue have been touched.

So in the end, it turns out that Swass is still a classic example of old school rap. However, if you are looking for the original version of the song Rippin', skip this reissue and go try and buy the original release in a used record store.

The ultimate rap CD June 10 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
this CD is great. By far the best Sir Mix-A-Lot CD. All the songs rock, and all sound different. There is heavy metal on Iron Man, comedy on Bremelo, and Kid Sensation adds some phat beats on Square Dance Rap, Buttermilk Buscuits, and Rippin'. A definite buy for anyone that likes old school rap.

One of the best ever. Please forgive 'Baby Got Back' Oct. 31 2005
By T. L. Krueger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
OK so it almost 2006 and this last weekend I am still trying to convince some stranger that this was one of the best hip-hop albums ever made. I dont know why, its not as socially responsible as Public Enemy, it doesn't flow like A Tribe Called Quest, and it doesn't jam like Jurassic 5, BUT ITS DAMN GOOD! I DON'T KNOW WHY. I remember trying to convince someone back in 1988 how good this album was as they nodded their head to the racy lyrics of Too Short. I am gonna keep trying Mix-a-lot.

FYI - I made sure this CD was playing when my first son was born - well at least on the way to the hospital.

I don't care - Mixalot is Seattle's greatest export. Ya'll can't step to the lyrical excellence, to the mack daddy attitude - Mix is it. SeaTown Represent!
