A little listening music


KURUPT PRESENTS TANGLED THOUGHTS
PHILLY 2 CALI

This is a group that Kurupt put out of a group of guys from Philly, Young De, Casanov, and Tek Nizzle who is also the group's producer. This was the groups first official [and might be last now] release but before this they had a couple great street albums out.

1.INTRO

2.PHILLY 2 CALI-this first track is great, it is a good introduction to the group if you have never heard them. It has a great east/west sound to the beat along with a southern influenced hook to it, to any new comers to the group that can appeal to any one. Lyrically all members hold it down on this track describing themselves and were they come from. Each member sounds great over this production and come off as very charismatic which is what is needed to appeal to all listeners.

3.ALL I EVER KNEW-now this a very west oriented song right here, as he beat from Tek has a some what old school west sound to it. The hook to this song is very well put together as well and matches the style of the track. This is also the first track Kurupt appears on as he opens up the song and as usual sounds great. AK & Toray appear on this track as well, and all 3 members of T.T. do a great job on this track.

4.JUMPOFF-this was the first single to the album and rightfully so, it has a great horn driven instrumental to it that gives it a very east coast influenced sound. Tangled Thoughts sound amazing over this track basically giving you an introduction to the crew, the video for this is great as well. Kurupt holds it down hard on this track with his second appearance, and Kurupt's little brother Roscoe makes his first appearance. He starts the song off with a cool flow and verse, can't wait for his next album.

5.CHEDDA CHASIN'-another west coast sounding production on this one here, reminds me of Westside Connection for some reason. Any way this is another great song were Tangled Thoughts and Ab Liva all deliver well and create another banger for all the rides out there. This is another worthy addition to the album.

6.TAKE U HOME-now this right here should have been a single for the album, this is a very catchy and cool song. Production on this song seems simplistic at times but that works to its advantage, and the piano in it sounds great. And the hook from Natasha Ramos sounds smooth and mesmerizing, the hook over this instrumental makes for a very catchy song. Of course Tangled Thoughts come off great on this track about the ladies, could have been a great single.

7.PUTTIN' WORK IN-another banger for the amps right here, the beat on this is great. Production on this track is another blend of east/west that makes for an interesting sound. T.T. come off great on this track as does guests Sen Dog of Cypress Hill and Mellow Man Ace. Another good addition to the album but something seems like it is missing.

8.THAT HOOD -another west coast sounding production and this one is banging, also Kurupt is back dropping the hook and a great verse. AK is back as well holding it down, and Tangled Thoughts hold this one down as well. I think this is one of the best songs on the album. This one kinda gets me pumped up a little, don't know why.

9.KEEP ON PUSHIN'-Roscoe is back in the house and kills the first verse with a lethal verse, and AK once again returns to help out on the album. Of course you know that Tangled Thoughts kill this track as well and each deliver wonderful verses. I think the highlight of this song though is the dark type beat and the hook, both of which are good.

10.CRENSHAW BLVD. [SKIT]

11.ANUTHA NIGHT IN L.A.-Kurupt returns and once again helps to create a classic, this could have easily been a single for the album. The easy on the ears instrumental is real catchy and will leave you nodding your head along to it. And the hook sounds amazing over this production, and all involved drop great verses. Another great song on the album, would have loved to see a video for this.

12.LIKE A '64-Roscoe's last appearance is not a wasted one as this is another potential single for the album. Much like the first song this one can appeal to different regions, a west coast production with a down south type hook. Every single person on this song delivers a well put together verse, and every one of them kills this.

13.REAL ONE-now this one here really should have been the single for this album, and I really mean that. The beat for this song is one of the best instrumentals I have ever heard, I even want the instrumental to this song. Of course Tangled Thoughts destroy this one as does Baby Down. Of course Kurupt and wife Gail Gotti kill this track, Gail really impressed me on this song. Another banging thing about this song is the excellent hook. This would have made this album go multi platinum in my opinion.

14.EVERY HOOD'S THA SAME-the beat on this one really reminds me of old school hip hop, and that is a good thing. The beat for this one is real cool instrumental, and they sound great over this one. Also the hook for this one is simplistic in a great way, I think this could have been another single. Also Promo co produced this one along side Tek.

15.'TIL THA SUN COME UP-now if there was a song on this album that would get regular rotation in the south would be this one. The beat while not entirely a southern influenced beat it still fits right in with the rest, and the hook is another down south style chorus. Tangled Thoughts, Rokbottom and Freeway all kill this one, Freeway in particular adds a whole new style to this album. Another great track on this album.

16.BIG BOSSIN'-smooth production on this track, kinda reminds me of instrumentals you hear inside elevators but not the cheesy kind. And the hook by Gene Wood sounds amazing and fits the style of this beat perfectly, wonderful combo right here. Of course all of the members of the group really go all out on this smooth joint, to bad they split.

17.PRODUCT OF MY ENVIRONMENT-another good song, great production on this one once again. It takes a little while for them to get into it but that's ok, all of them do good on this track. Gillie Da Kid does his thing on this track, and the hook is real well done.

18.THESE JAWNS-this is a funny song right here, and it has a wonderful instrumental to it. The beat on this one is real smooth and playa like, and each one sounds great on this track. Each one adjusts his flow to fit the style of the song and the beat, and the hook is funny. I recommend every one check this out, I' m pretty sure you will be laughing. Allen James co produced this one.

19.BEEN THRU SUM THANGS-the album ends on a very west coast influenced track that helps end the album on a high note. The beat is very west coast in sound, and each member of the group take turns dropping some gems about them selves. I think that this while a typical closer is a good one, maybe if it would have been placed else were though it might have been ranked higher.

This was a great album and it is really sad that they are no longer a group, they created a classic in my mind.
