For those who do not know, the Thug Lordz originally consisted of YUKMOUTH, C-BO, and SPICE 1. But Spice couldn't be there to record the album so Yuk and Bo had to do it on their own. The end product was this album full of West Coast bangers for your listening pleasure. There would be another "Thug LORDZ" album featuring just these two once again but there was also another released featuring all three members and a DVD.

1.GO HARD IN THE PAINT-the first joint comes out hard like the title suggests. C-BO comes out first with the hook and opening verse, and has always Bo comes threw with a hard verse. YUKMOUTH is up next with that cocky flow he is known for, and KILLA TAY comes with the third verse to end the track. MO' BETTA laced the perfect beat for these three, it is the perfect opening song to introduce the album with.

2.44 MAG GLOCC-RAW STEEL is up next on production, and he does not disappoint on this track, this is actually one of my favorite songs on the album. The same three from the previous track come back for a second round k.o. Bo is back on the hook again and also drops a hot verse. Yuk as usual drops heat as well, but Killa Tay kills this track.

3.SHE'S A H**-this is the first track the two do together with just them two, and though it is not one of the strongest songs on the album it is alright. This song is basically about a homie that is going to marry a h**. Yuk and Bo spit about her sleazy ways over a laid back beat from Mo' Betta.

4.HE AIN'T A THUG-now I think it is safe to say that anybody who listens to West Coast music has heard this song. This is the diss song from the album that is aimed a 50Cent and his G Unit click. So while I don't consider this a classic diss track it is worthy of some praise. For one this is the track that features 50 `s old running buddies BANG EM SMURF & DOMINATION. The SILVER BACK GURILLAZ do their thing on this track. Also this is the first production credit for MARK SPARKS, and while he has been around for a while most people [at least in my experience] know him from producing for Kurupt's "AGAINST THE GRAIN" album, and Canibus's "MIND CONTROL" album. Also noteworthy is the hard verses from C Bo and Yukmouth who kill it, also I always thought the hook was funny.

5.AMERICAN DREAM-now this is the solo song from Yukmouth, and as usual this is killer track. the beat from NAN DOG is a haunting instrumental that is perfect for Yuk to spill game over. Yuk does his thing on this track, this is another great track.

6.GET AWAY-J CLASSIC drops a bouncy beat for the Thug Lordz to ride to on the album, and ride they do. Bo starts things off with a great verse that only helps to show off his flow. Yuk hits the track up next with another great verse and an excellent flow. Bo takes the final verse and basically claims this track as his with another nice verse.

7.KILLA CALI-next up is what I believe was the single for the album, and it is definitely worthy of that honor. What makes this track more special is the fact that it is the track has all three members of the Thug Lordz. SPICE 1 kicks things off with a hard verse and even laces the hook for the song. C Bo takes the third verse, as Yuk finishes the track off, but Spice took this track. Also E A SKI & CMT are the ones who laced this menacing beat.

8.BULLETPROOF LOVE-now this track here should have been a single because if this would have had a video and radio play this album would have sold a lot more. The beat from RYTHEM D is excellent and is one of my favorites on the album, also the sample for the hook is nice. Yuk spits first followed by C Bo but it is surprisingly EASTWOOD that steals the show on this one.

9.GET YA MONEY [BE A THUG LORD] -Mark Sparks returns for a production credit and does a pretty good job, but nothing like his work on Kurupt's album. Bo kicks it off with an ok verse, Yuk takes this one with his verse on this one. But when they share a verse at the end both shine much better.

10.MADE MEN-the team of Yuk, Bo, Killa Tay, and producer Mo' Betta return for another banger. The beat is hard and nice to bump, and Killa's opening verse is amazing. Yuk takes the second verse with a nice verse, and Bo takes the finial verse and kills it. Over all another banger for the speakers.

11.MY LIFE-now this BANGER right here is the C Bo solo track and Bo kills this track with and outstanding flow. Bo stepped it up on this track lyricaly and even speed up his flow, and even when the hook hits and it is slower than the verse it still fits. The BANGING beat is courtesy of the ever talented BOSKO, who also incorporates the Roger Troutman talk box. This is another that would have made noise as a single with push.

12.LET'S FLIP HER-and now we are back two the Thug Lordz spitting together, and once again it is produced Raw Steel. Also this is another track about sex and girls, and like the last one this is one of the weaker tracks. It is an ok track though, and you might like it, or then I did.

13.21 GUN SALUTE-we end things with another banger for all to enjoy, and once again this track is produced by E A Ski & CMT. They did an excellent job on this track, it is a very original beat and Yuk killed the first verse. Bo kills the second verse with his hardcore flow. They share the finial verse and kill that one as well and ensure that they end the album right.

Over all this is very strong album and I think even the casual rap fan would enjoy this album. Sure it isn't a mainstream sounding album but that is what is great about it, I recommend the album to all.
