Rep Yo City - (featuring Petey Pablo/Bun B/Eightball/Lil John & The Eastside Boyz)
Label: Sick Wid It
Rick Rock handles much of the production, and his pinging bass lines provide an appropriate backdrop for 40 Water's smothering flow, which is immensely appealing if not always easily accessible. "It's All Gravity" cheerfully registers the resignation of inevitability, while "Rep Yo City" does exactly what it proposes and features Lil' Jon. Ya smell me?
