Various The Pick Up
- Words: Pete Babb
- Label: No Mayo
Production is the key to this Bay Area crew. The a-side has an okay-but-not-great beat, but the track is still noteworthy thanks to tight rhymes from the massively underrated (and unknown) Gennessee. Things pick up with the b-side, "Tell U (Remix)," as Mum's the Word's soulful track keeps things interesting. The Blends are vets in this game, and their experience shows through in their consistently solid output.
