    Product Details


    After appearing on two of rap's more accomplished and entertaining releases, Brand Nubian's 1990 debut One for All and his own 1992 solo effort, Reel to Reel, Grand Puba took a short leave of absence from the Hip Hop scene. Three years later he resurfaced, freestyling first in a Sprite commercial and then with this long-overdue second solo work, 2000. Puba carried those first two records on the inventiveness of his rhyme style - a little Slick Rick swagger, some Biz Markie pop culture referencing and tone deaf singing, and a lot of Puba's own distinctive whine and boast. On 2000, Puba recaptures all of that and sounds like he's never been away. As before, he packs scores of name drops and song snatches, from Erkel to "Little Drummer Boy," in between his own self-aggrandizing hyperbole and earns more than a few chuckles for the effort. Also tried-and-true Puba, the tracks on 2000 favor a heavy bounce and melodic soul groove over the more raw and rhythmic funk backings of most rappers - which means there's more music and fatter hooks than usual. Another difference from his previous outings is the lack of pseudo-Islamic race theories that have occasionally popped up in Puba's lyrics.

    This Deluxe Extended Edition includes The Billboard Hot 100 Hit Single "I Like It (I Wanna Be Where You Are)" plus bonus versions, remixes and a capellas previously never available on CD format. The album boats production from the era's best: Buckwild (D.I.T.C.), Mark Sparks Minnesota, DJ Alamo, Dante Ross & Stud Doogie as well a feature from fellow Nubian Sadat X.

    Comment: Great album, Puba's confident flow is on point and these beats really bump. If you like soulful boom bap music with heavy bass, this is for you. I slept on this.

    Comment: If you don't like Grand Puba you should move the fuck out of NY. When I first heard this I didn't like it as much as Reel to Reel so I kind of passed on this but, have realized it is the jawn.
