Album Review

Young MC wasn't given props at the time and he wasn't respected in the years following the release of his debut Stone Cold Rhymin', largely because he worked entirely in the pop-rap/crossover vein. All the same, that's what's great about his debut, since it's exceptionally clever and effective, a wonderful combination of deft rhymes and skillful production. And there's no discounting Matt Dike, Michael Ross, the Dust Brothers, and engineer Mario Caldato, Jr. (the latter two names are members of the Beastie Boys' inner circle), who make this record easily accessible, without a trace of guilt, even if it does sample from familiar sources. And, really, Young MC is a gifted rapper, spinning out rhymes with a deft touch and turning out rhymes much more clever than they should be. Yes, Stone Cold Rhymin' is a product of its time, particularly in its sound and lyrical references, but divorced from the Bush era, it comes off as one of the catchiest, friendliest pop-rap records and it's still an infectious party record years after its release.

Customer Reviews

Great (highly underrated) Album

Young MC remains an underrated, unappreciated artist despite the fact that his debut album, "Stone Cold Rhymin" is incredible with its clever lyrics, great delivery, and catchy beats. Album highlights include 'Non Stop', which has some of the best lyrics on the album, the laidback and comical 'Principal's Office' (similar to Will Smith's "Parents just don't Understand"), and 'Know How', which highlights Young MC's speedy delivery and suggests him as the predecessor to 'fast rappers' such as Twista. If anything, listen to those three songs. If you just want nostalga and a good dance track, you can't go wrong with "Bust A Move".

I love the old school

I think more people would like rap if this was still popular. This is really good.

Still Awesome

This was one of my favorites growing up and I still love listening to it! A classic!
