Various Artists Phila Flava Presents a League of Our Own Volume 2
- Words: Brolin Winning
- Label: Vintage
Assembled by Phila Flava honcho Jason Gloss, A League of Our Own Vol. 2 sports 20 tracks and features over 30 different artists, some of whom are familiar names, others not so much. Like most compilations, it‘s pretty hit or miss, though there are some serious bangers on here. Planet Asia delivers a true gem with "Ball Till You Fall," QN5 succeeds at the difficult task of hip-hop comedy/parody on "Commercial Rap," and "Veteran‘s Day" featuring Dave Ghetto, Breez Evahflowin, Pumpkinhead, and Rok One is outstanding. There‘s definitely some skippable material in the mix, but the good stuff is top-notch.
