G-Mommy Tales

by

Old-school, Run-DMC-ish raps that work like a 14-track cautionary tale. Harlem-born Detroiter Grandma Rap and emcee Big Whillz cloak their raps in a sometimes-irksome preachiness that's offset with pocketbook street philosophizing. To wit: "Never thought I'd end up in the big house ... Mother and father had problems, gee whiz." Best cuts: "You Ain't Hittin' None of This," "Hindsight is 20/20," "Rosa Parks."
