Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The second volume of Rhino's female hip-hop series Fat Beats and Bra Straps spotlights Battle Rhymes & Posse Cuts -- that is, cutting contests and songs recorded by a full group.

Among the more interesting cuts are De La Soul & Shortie No Mass' "In the Woods," Sparky D's "Sparky's Turn," Pebblee-Poo's "A Fly Guy," J.J. Fad's "Ya Goin' Down," the Coup's "This One's a Girl" and "The Show Stoppa Is Stupid Fresh" by Super Nature, which was an early incarnation of Salt N' Pepa. Anyone serious about hip-hop will find cuts like these quite interesting, but listeners looking for a handful of hits should realize that this is more of an archival, historical release than a hits collection.
