Wanted and Respected A Good Look
- Words: Ron Nachmann
- Label: Trife Life
Note to the hip-hop distribution industry: please get this damn record out to people. In this follow-up to their underground hit "Fix Your Face," Brooklyn MCs Potent and Trife Sr. swing a smooth, braggadocious flow over a crackin' beat by Sin-Bo and Doggie Diamonds. But the highlight here is the way these cats sing the chorus to the catchy-ass string sample. Now that's a hook. Strangely, the flipside's drinking tune, "For No Reason," features some West Coast-style high-register strings. Regardless, the A-side is worth the price alone. Support!
