D-Block, No Security... Anyone heard it?

Anyone has listened to this compilation? Been listening to it in my car. Some really good beats, and really good verses too. Jadakiss's verse is awesome in Get That Paper.








Really heavy chorus on that one, real aggressive, love that one.




Great Pete Rock Beat on the next one:



That beat is sick! Again, Jada's verse is great.

Anyone has this album?

you dont think that sample's been a little overused at this point? i mean it was dope on jeru's my mind spray.. but that was like 15 years ago or something. anyway, i like jada as an mc, but never liked the production on the d-block stuff.

The combo of nautilus & the old-school nodding hook suggests the throwback feel was intentional.

perhaps overused, but i'm quite curious to check out how some producers flip samples that are considered to make up the canon of sampled records. some of the samples make up the foundation of a song, others just little effective snippets. for example,
