Album Review

Spice 1's second of two greatest-hits collections in two years, Hits, Vol. 3 compiles a modest number of the notorious West Coast hardcore rapper's performances. The dozen songs featured on this best-of come from a variety of obscure sources, and it's very questionable whether or not these songs were really so-called "hits" since Spice 1 had few, if any, hits since the mid-'90s. Furthermore, though you'd probably presume that a greatest-hits collection such as this would encompass Spice 1's numerous albums for Jive during the '90s — like the excellent Hits collection had — that is not the case here. As mentioned, the dozen songs on Hits, Vol. 3 are obscure recordings most fans probably have never heard. Thus, you should think of this best-of album as a rarities collection since it's the more accurate description. Unfortunately, Thug World Entertainment assumed titling this collection as a hits rather than rarities collection would no doubt sell better, even if listeners were misled in the process. Regardless, many guests appear over the course of this album — Too $hort, Rappin' 4-Tay, MJG, Three 6 Mafia, Jayo Felony, Tray Deee — and that may be reason enough for many to seek out this collection.

Too Short discovered rapper Spice 1, who'd been born in Texas before moving to California. His self-titled debut was as vivid and fatalistic a gangsta album as possible, and his hard-edged, angry, and pessimistic rapping style and tone only added to the despair emanating from the disc. He followed it with an even more bitter and nihilistic release, 187 He Wrote in 1993, complete with simulated gunfire. Other releases included 1995's 1990 Sick and 1997's Black Bossalini (aka Dr. Bomb From Da Bay)....
