Summary: This Is How It Is We Try To Handle Biz
Comment: This song is simply superb. Pep Love opened it up with some good lines. Tajai also did a good job. Goapele was great for this song. I was happy to hear it over NBA 2k5 but it was chopped down. The music video for this song is awesome. As they all appear together with Goapele. I have to give it to Del for his verse in the song. A great song you can't pass.

Summary: Bump This From Soweto To The Bay
Comment: Coming from a 12" with J-Ro from the Liks, and from the NBA 2K5 soundtrack, Hieroglyphics brings this nice little number to the table. A-Plus works the beat well, really helping the travel theme involved in the song. Every emcee brought it, from Pep in the beginning to Opio in the end. It was in fact odd that Phesto was the only Hiero rapper not on here but that was probably just an inside thing.

Summary: All Because Of NBA 2K5...
Comment: I first heard this song on the game NBA 2K5(even though it was a badly cut-down version that screwed up A-Plus's verse and completely left out Opio's). It's a good song and I feel good hearing a full version. The hook is wack, but Goapele sings well anyway. But the fact that I heard this song a thousand times (distorted or not), and the fact that everyone is on here EXCEPT Phesto Dee kind of takes my likeness for this song down a bit.

Summary: It's Tight
Comment: I've heard about Hieroglyphics, but this is my first song. I've been a Del fan for a while though, so hearing him on this track is a pleasure. His mic-mates got skills, too. The beat's bangin' too, but I'll have to agree with everyone else on the chorus.

Comment: Ever since Hiero dripped onto the scene there's been A-Plus as their producer extraordinaire. On "Soweto" he comes correct, as always, giving the Hiero emcees some salad to toss. Pep proves to be one of the illest in the squad and Del displays the spry verbals that have made him Hiero's perpetual master. One qualm though- wack ass chorus!

Summary: One Of Their Best....
Comment: This is one of their best songs they've ever made. The music is crisp, flows are very good, and Pep and Del especially kill it. Goapele sounds very good on the chorus too.

Summary: Another Victim Of The Wack Chorus Plague
Comment: Del rips his verse, as usual, and the beat is off the ph scale. One tip, drop the weak chorus and incorporate some tight cuts. I'm sure one of the cats from Souls knows how to scratch. Otherwise, the beat sounds like something to get a video game hero hyped up.

Summary: You Dont Know Rap, Till You Know Heiroglyphics
Comment: Hieroglyphics are one of the first underground hip-hop artists I've ever listened to. One word- flowin', no matter what they will always figure out some way to make a phat beat( freestyling and also lyrical rhymes).
