We often get asked about our initial connection to Brand Nubian. Really it all started with this album as just fans of the music. One of the many things that is interesting about this album is that it does not include Grand Puba whatsoever. Puba was in solo land and Lord Jamar, being the warrior that he is, didnt miss a fucking step declaring that he show must go on. The mainstream reviews were mixed but the heads loved this record. Jamar brought Brooklyn and X brought Harlem. This record really showed that Brand Nubian is more one a collective than a group.
