V-White Perfect Timin'
- Words: Tomas Palermo
- Label: SMC
Make no mistake: V-White is (to quote fellow Bay ambassador Messy Marv) on his hype. The East Oakland rap veteran from The Delinquents has been in the hyphy-movement shadows waiting to drop this bunker buster, which arrives with aid from friends like E-A-Ski, Traxamillion, Too $hort, and Ant Banks. "We at It Again" bounces with fingersnaps, bongos, and White's scrappy, G'd-up lyrics that speak of all things "Town"-what it do and how it go. And there's ample scraper-rattling bass and devastating spit-game moments on "Skyscraper," "Oakland," and "Cinco de Mayo."
