After producing tracks for a host of rappers (DMX, Jay-Z, Foxy Brown, EPMD
, Ja Rule
, Memphis Bleek
), Irv Gotti
got the Murder Inc. posse together for an album of East Coast gangsta tracks. There's at least three or four rappers on each track, and though the trading rhymes often becomes confusing, the album is a solid gangsta effort. The DMX feature "Tales from Tha Darkside" is an obvious highlight, as is "Murderers," "We Getting High Tonight," and "Vita, Vita, Vita."
