"Let's talk about Ice-T's masterpiece album OG."


  

          

This album has aged very well imo. I listened to it all the way thru last night no problem. Tight rhymes, Aladdin killed it on the beats and dope messages and stories. West coast album but loved the fact he got his East coast patnas on there.

I just found out today he did a little video for damn near every if not every track on the album. A cool lil touch. Did he sell it back in days or was it promo material.

I came in here hot, ready to campagin for 'Power' but you make a compelling point sir.

I didn't mess with this album like that, but I just skimmed thru all 24 (TWENTY FOUR?!!) tracks and there really aint no skippers on it. they all slap.

I missed this completely.

I'll have to go back & revisit "OG." It's easily been a couple of decades since I've listened to it.

I wasn't trying to take anything from Power at all. I just so happened to be listening to OG one night.

When I can I'll listen to Power again to make a fresh comparison.
