Opposite of H2O [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Christopher Stackhouse
Hip-hop's top dog, DMX, seems to have the Midas touch. In the wake of Puffy's fall from grace and Master P's relative obscurity, DMX's albums continue to sell multiplatinum and his Ruff Ryders record label is riding high on the success of Eve's LET THERE BE...EVE, the Ruff Ryders' RIDE OR DIE, VOL 1, and the Lox's WE ARE THE STREETS. The latest MC to emerge from the Ruff Ryder camp is the thuggish Drag-On. On his debut, the 20-year-old is so confident about his rhyme skills that the title proclaims he's the OPPOSITE OF H2O.

Barnes & Noble - Christopher Stackhouse
Hip-hop's top dog, DMX, seems to have the Midas touch. In the wake of Puffy's fall from grace and Master P's relative obscurity, DMX's albums continue to sell multiplatinum and his Ruff Ryders record label is riding high on the success of Eve's LET THERE BE...EVE, the Ruff Ryders' RIDE OR DIE, VOL 1, and the Lox's WE ARE THE STREETS. The latest MC to emerge from the Ruff Ryder camp is the thuggish Drag-On. On his debut, the 20-year-old is so confident about his rhyme skills that the title proclaims he's the OPPOSITE OF H2O. On the disc's lead single, "Niggas Die 4 Me," DMX lends his gruff vocals to the chant-like chorus in support of Drag-On's burgeoning braggadocio. The most danceable track on the record, "Here We Go," features Ruff Ryder first lady Eve viciously spittin' hardcore verses over a bouncy, Swizz Beatz-inspired groove. Although Drag-On's lyrics tend to be boastful and lighthearted, on the reflective "The Way Life Is," the fire-breathing verbalist meditates on the depraved state of inner-city youth. It's an interesting direction for Drag-On to take -- and that sensitive turn would serve him well on future tracks. But until then, OPPOSITE OF H2O is sure to keep the house party rockin'.
All Music Guide - John Bush
The best pure rapper in the Ruff Ryders family after DMX, Drag-On debuted with Opposite of H2O. The album pushes tough grooves, thanks in part to trackmasters Swizz Beatz, and hardcore raps, featuring every major member -- DMX, Eve, the LOX -- of Ruff Ryders. Despite the many guest spots, Drag-On remains the focus of the album, profiling his skills on the radio-breakout "Split These Bars."
