certainly found a legitimate member for his Flipmode Squad
in cousin Rampage
, as he shows on his 1997 album release. Music from Lord Have Mercy
, Spliff Star
, and of course Busta
himself set them up to be a major player among the top crews in hip-hop, such as the Wu-Tang Clan, Boot Camp Clik
, and D.I.T.C. On this album, a young Rampage
is presented with some of the best production work done so far by Flipmode, and his flow works well with the beats. Lyrically, he has a simplified style of rapping without much wordplay, standing out more on the tracks where he's telling a story. The hypnotic piano on "Wild for the Night" easily makes for the best track on the album, but "Conquer Da World" and "Get the Money and Dip" are definite bangers.
