Shock G Fear Of A Mixed Planet
- Words: Jesse Serwer
- Label: 33rd Street
Fear of a Mixed Planet might be a reference to a classic Public Enemy record and "Weesom Hustlas" sounds like a re-make of EPMD's "You're a Customer," but Digital Underground mastermind Shock G isn't on any retro shit with his solo debut. Though eclectic to a fault, Fear nonetheless finds the producer/MC moving in a forward direction. "Cherry Flava'd Email" and "Cinnamon Waves" (which features DJ QBert and the record's oddest moments) have the '80s/Prince vibe their titles suggest, while "My Opinion" (with Numskull of the Luniz), "Who's Clean" and "Fear of a Mixed Planet" form a triad of racial observations as seen by the mixed-race Shock.
