iTunes Review

Arguably the greatest (if most underrated) pimp rap specialist since Too Short, Suga Free has been churning out over-the-top pandering rhymes since the early-‘90s, when he was known as Royal Rock. Blessed with a wholly original style that incorporates mellow singing, schizophrenic cadences, and lightning-fast, E-40-esque slanguage, he has amassed a devoted cult following while never really breaking through to the mainstream. Originally down with West Coast beat maestro DJ Quik, the two teamed up for this impressive debut album released in 1997. A wild ride through the red-light districts of Pomona, California, Street Gospel is alternately sordid, hilarious, and thought-provoking, a head-spinning mix of flesh-peddling bravado and subtle sensitivity, interjected with plenty of scandalous hoes and references to his perm and nails. Quik's production here is among his best work, exquisitely funky and highly musical, loaded with his trademark watery synths, deep bass thumps, and freaky percussion. With classic tracks like "On My Way," "Why U Bullsh*ttin?" and "Doe Doe and da Skunk," Street Gospel plays like the hip-hop equivalent of Iceburg Slim's acclaimed autobiography.

Representin' Southern Cali Proper Like..

Since back in the 80's, Free's been putting it down on the corner blocks of Pomona. From barber shops to backyard parties, there's no stopping his street lingo and pimp phrases. If you like this album, you've got to check out the one after this.. The New Testament.

a must have

even after 10 years this cd is fresh to this day..its a must have..also sunday school has sum real layed Back S#@T....so smoke out and stay up pimps and playas

street gospel aka (the truth)

It was "the truth". I had heard a few singles when it came out, but never bought the album. A true west coast hip hop classic. People should also check some of his newer projects like Just Add Water and Sunday School.
