iTunes Editors’ Notes

The Bay Area’s underground rap scene saw something of a renaissance in the mid-‘90s. In Vallejo, rappers like Mac Mall, E-40, and B-Legit were pioneering their distinctive styles, while producer Khayree’s imprint Young Black Brotha had just become a subsidiary of Atlantic Records. Meanwhile, across the bay in San Francisco proper, the young rapper who'd eventually become known as Andre Nickatina was releasing idiosyncratic, often self-produced recordings under the name Dre Dog. I Hate You with a Passion was Nickatina’s second full-length as Dre Dog. It became something of an underground sensation on the strength of “Situation Critical”: a synth-laced crawl through the dark side of the Frisco drug trade that showcased Nickatina’s unstoppable flow. But the relentlessly grim “Situation Critical” belies Nickatina’s sly humor and playful inventiveness, which are more in evidence on cuts like “Killa Whale," with its bizarre aquatic-themed boasts and keening synth hook, and “Piece of My Mind,” an amazing a cappella diss track that finds Nickatina disparaging “carbon copy caterpillars” and running up on competitors “like a cheetah on an antelope."

Customer Reviews

Nickatina. Greatest Rapper of our Era

At first glance Andre Nickatinas material may appear to be generic and typical of most "bay area rappers" etc. This is not the case as, upon closer inspection, it is quite apparent that Nickatina has a commanding mastery of "the art of rapping" as a whole. With a care free, lackadaisical attitude towards his rhymes which depict delightful past times such as smoking "chewy" or making sweet love to a hoe. Overall Nickatina is all about his values and it is clear that Andre lives to content is listeners.

KING NICKY BEST RAPPA OF ALL TIME

nicky is in a league of his own. he aint about tryin to keep his fans and listeners content, hes just about doin wut he thinks is tite and thats wuts so ill about him, he dont care. thats y hes tha best rapper of all time......and if u dont no him, u dont no wut real rap is all about.

Amazing.

While everyone was still into Dr. Dre and Snoop, Andre Nickatina was coming out with this beautiful album that was ahead of its time. This album is (in my opinion) one of his best. Killa Whale is a knock out. Such a sexy beat. Situation Critical is amazing. If you like Andre even just a little bit then you need to own this album.
