Escape From Death Row CD Cover Art



ESCAPE FROM DEATHROW

This was an album that was released by Low Life and Big C Style on Low Life records that was going to help kids and stuff with the income for the album. They put not only artists that would be on Low Life records but stacked the release with well known West Coast artists. Most of which were Dogg Pound members collectedly known as the D.P.G..

1."LOW LIFE INTRO"-The intro is pretty good nothin special though

2."BACK ON THA SMASH"-This is a banging opening song with my boy Kurupt ripping it up. He provides the opening, second and final verses as well as the hook for the track. Tray Dee also brings heat to the table as he always does, and even Q does a nice job here. I love Blaqtoven's battle influenced beat here, it really fits Kurupt and Tray Dee's styles.

3."WHAT CHA GONNA DO"-This is the song I felt could have been the hit single for this album. The beat is a nice smooth gangsta'd out beat by Blaqtoven, with Daz and two future members of Doggys Angels [Cognac & Kola] spitting that West Coast flow. Every time I listen to this I can just picture a video that should have been. This track would later appear on Daz's first "Who Ride Wit Us" compilation.

4."HERE WE GO NOW"-This is a pretty good track, not as good as number three, but it is nice. Daz and Hit do very well together on this one, as well as Low Life stoppin by. This was another Blaqtoven produced track and also appeared on Daz's "Who Ride Wit Us" comp.

5."DO YOUR THANG"-I don't care what people say it does not sound dated. Hit, Crooked I, and Ric come through blazin on this joint. The beat from Wayne D is very radio friendly and Crooked I kills this track with Ric on the hook. Also I have to say Hit sounds really good over this bouncy production with his flow.

6."UH OH"-Here it is the classic track that made me love Crooked I, well I already did but this is classic. All those doubting my man should check out this joint right here as he destroys Tim Nitz orchestra production. I cannot say it enough about this track, he kills it, classic. This could have also been a hit, I highly recommend you listen to this song.

7."NOW THAT I'AM OLDER"-This has a banging beat to it once again by Blaqtoven, and has my man Lil C Style on it. Hit and Young Life also come out good on this one with every one delivering with their verse. It is always cool to hear Lil Style since he only has album out.

8."WE'RE GONNA PARTY"-A nice track to just lay back and chill to, just lay down and pop this joint in. this is another one of those radio friendly sounding productions from Blaqtoven. The hook fits well with the beat and is catchy with Silva Satin and Ruff Dogg dropping vocals.

9."ROLLIN WIT LOW LIFE"-Bad Azz stops by to drop some game on this one, one of my favorite rappers out. Bad along with Hit and Young Life each drop a verse here with Bad stealing the show over another great Blaqtoven track. Not the best song on the album from any artist but still a good one.

10."LIFE"-this might be my least listened to track on the album since I never really got into this track. I will say that Blaqtoven's production here would be right at home on a Ruff Ryder album. Every time I hear it I can picture the Lox and them on this one. Q is cool and all but this track really isn't for me.

11."HITTIN FO'"-The beat is banging and why shouldn't it be since Soopafly provided it, one of my favorite tracks on the album. Hit kills this one with his flow as it fits Soopafly's production. Soopafly himself destroys the last verse here, this one could have also been a cool single in my opinion.

12."DANCE WIT ME"-Soopafly returns on production alongside Daz and provide Q with a hit beat. Q seems more comfortable here but then again that may just be the instrumental that I like so much. Also I like the hook for this track, another good one.

13."THEY MAY F_CK WIT U"-Soopafly returns on production and on the vocals here. This is one of those classic Soopafly songs that is raw and catchy at the same time. He rips this track up over the piano driven beat. Another one of my favorites off of the album.

14."FLIP SIDE"-We end with an ok track by RBX, and Silva Satin. The beat from Blaqtoven is good but not up to par with his others. This is a good enough song but not the one to end on.

While this didn't sell like I am sure everyone wanted it to it is still a very good album. In fact even to this day I still play this album regularly. One of the best west coast compilations I own and I would recommend it to any west coast or rap fan out there.
