1 Way O'' Anotha is written to the CBers and I don''t mean radio, who be not playing our hits, the club owners that don''t be staging our shows, the record stores that don''t put our make in the racks, and the cops that be shutting the goods down.

Fairy Tales is about how mainstream America treats the reality of inner-city life as a fantasy, when people gots to live dat.
Say What Dey Want is about all the perpetration that goes on in the so-called dating scene. I play a character giving advice to a young''un about how to get dat all important hook-up.
Reverse D Dog and When Peace Goes 2 War are just the god droppin'' wisdom.
Mirage and Complicated are both dedicated to Sister Nina who was there when a brother was low to offer consolation and understanding. Hopefully, brother reciprocated... They also relate to the sheer hell one has to go through these days to try to cultivate a halfway decent relationship.
Last Letter is to the ex. Nuff said.
Guilty is a remix of an old song from one of those thousand one unreleased NUMB hits entitled Court is in Session. More old school now and without the offending samples.
Nigga What is a quick joint that I came up with to a Ned Vicious track. First time I used one of his tracks on my album. I''ll probably be doing that more often. Ned, get the dials ready, son. The student is now the teacher. I was so enthused on that, I decided to throw on another Vicious track, What''s My Name and do the duet thing we''ve done in the past.
hope ya''ll like it and get both volumes. Reapalife, son, UH-HUH!
