Nottz Presents DMP Life Ain't Sweet
- Words: Ron Nachmann
- Label: Teamsta
Virginia's given us producers like Timba, Neptunes and even Premier (born in Norfolk, baby), and your boy Nottz stands tall among 'em. This time (unlike last year's "Don't Wanna Give That Up"), his MC DMP finds his mark with the compelling ghetto-existentialist "Life Ain't Sweet;" "'Where was the 'hood when my stomach was growlin'" indeed. The gorgeous soul vocal on the chorus doesn't hurt a bit, nor does the flipside's bold and disciplined "Uncutt Raw." This slab could portend big thangs for these cats.
