Poobs: Prepare For Glory by D-Block on Apple Music

19 Songs

EDITORS’ NOTES

Continuing the proud tradition of putting all your peoples on once you establish your own successful rap career, New York's D-Block share the shine with their extended family, crafting this mixtape-style album featuring rhyme associates Trav, Bucky, T.Y., Straws, A.P., Poobs, Bully, Don D, and Large Amount. Produced mostly by Poobs, it is exactly what longtime fans would expect/hope for; relentlessly grimy street tales served over sparse instrumentation and rugged beats. Similar to their recent No Security release, Prepare For Glory has both slow burners and rambunctious anthems, both of which are done well, even by the more obscure members. Highlights include the hard-driving "Unstoppable," the bold bravado of "Savage," dice-shooter's party jam "456," and reflections-of-a-dealer narrative "7 Days 6 Nights." With 19 tracks of gun-clapping drug talk, not all of them are winners, and some of the non-stop criminality starts blending together towards the end, but overall, Glory is another strong effort from one of New York's most consistent crews.

About D-Block

The members of Yonkers, NY, rap crew the LOX (Jadakiss, Sheek Louch, and Styles P) founded D-Block Records, which officially launched with Sheek's solo album Walk Witt Me in 2003. The label's roster -- which also includes J-Hood (aka Jae Hood), Team Arliss, and the president of D-Block Records, Supa Mario -- took on the D-Block name for compilations and other material released within New York's vibrant mixtape circuit. A highlight of D-Block's developing catalog, The CD/DVD Mixtape reached into the Top 40 of the R&B/Hip-Hop albums chart after its March 2006 release on Koch Records. Not averse to beef, D-Block had an ongoing feud with 50 Cent and his G-Unit camp (which was the pretext for their leaving Interscope to the distribution deal with Koch), because 50 Cent criticized Jadakiss for appearing on rival Ja Rule's "New York" track. There was also contention with Roc-a-Fella artist Beanie Sigel and the LOX's former Bad Boy boss, Sean "Diddy" Combs, involving their publishing rights; however, both of these situations were quashed rather amicably. ~ Cyril Cordor
