Spice 1 is an undisputed West Coast legend, who
first hit the scene after the N.W.A. and – closer to
home – Too $hort explosion of the late ‘80s. As
history showed, he continued that bloodline with
finesse and authority. His nasal flow is menacing and
strong, and fans have been consistently captivated
by his ‘hood tales since his self-titled debut in 1992.
If you want thematic range with your MCs, Spice
isn’t that dude – he is all about crime tales and the
perils of ghetto life. And he attacks that storytelling
sweet spot with each new cut. Spice 1 boasted four
singles by the time it was all said and done, and
breezed to Gold status on the strength of cuts like
the catchy “East Bay Gangster”, the heartfelt tales
and truths of “Welcome To The Ghetto”, and the
thick, grooving “In My Neighborhood.” He even
produced the alcohol-themed “187 Proof,” another
of the album’s singles, and the hands-down cleverest
vocal outing on the LP.
Sonically, the backdrops on Spice 1 range from
plunky, keyboard-bassline funk to deeper, fuzzy ‘70s
samples – and he sounds strong on top of both.
“Break Yourself” is fueled with an electro-funk drive,
“1-800 Spice” brings reggae flavor, and “Peace To
My Nine” gets chunkier, with a well-placed P-Funk
“One Nation Under A Groove” sample.
Presented here on official retail vinyl for the first time
since its initial release 26 years ago, Spice 1’s debut
holds the test of time and carries the California
gangsta flag with pride. Some colors just don’t fade.
