Space Boogie: Smoke Oddessey [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Brett Johnson
With a cocksure, salacious flow that could make Dolemite blush, Kurupt delivers rapid-fire gangsta rhymes that aren't for the faint of heart. The Philly-native/ LA-transplant first made waves in the early-'90s as one half of the Snoop Dogg-formulated duo, Tha Dogg Pound. Since then, Kurupt has built his reputation on raw, unadulterated G-funk rap with an East Coast penchant for marvelous metaphors. His third solo album, Space Boogie: Smoke Oddessey, reprises the familiar themes of biggin' up his West Coast homies Snoop, Nate Dogg, and his Dogg Pound partner Daz appear on the disc, flipping a middle-finger to unsavory females, and throwing a mercilessly unending slew of...

Barnes & Noble - Brett Johnson
With a cocksure, salacious flow that could make Dolemite blush, Kurupt delivers rapid-fire gangsta rhymes that aren't for the faint of heart. The Philly-native/ LA-transplant first made waves in the early-'90s as one half of the Snoop Dogg-formulated duo, Tha Dogg Pound. Since then, Kurupt has built his reputation on raw, unadulterated G-funk rap with an East Coast penchant for marvelous metaphors. His third solo album, Space Boogie: Smoke Oddessey, reprises the familiar themes of biggin' up his West Coast homies Snoop, Nate Dogg, and his Dogg Pound partner Daz appear on the disc, flipping a middle-finger to unsavory females, and throwing a mercilessly unending slew of chest-thumping brag rhymes at his competitors, both real and imagined. Like Dr. Dre on his misogynistic album 2001, Kurupt makes even the most disrespectful barrages sound funky -- with the help of seamless production. On "The Hardest...," he holds his own with seasoned battle rhymers MC Ren and Xzibit over guitar-licks and flutes. On that smoothed-out groove, which features Nate Dogg's velvety vocals, Kurupt shocks eardrums with jarring lyrics such as: "Stick something fat up in each single bitch." Hardcore ethos notwithstanding, Kurupt also knows how to chill, which he shows on the mellow, summertime jam "Sunshine," featuring the warm R&B croon of Jon B. Though many of Kurupt's lyrics lack depth, Space Boogie's crunk beats are a sure sign that the Mothership of quintessential West Coast kick-back beats has landed.
All Music Guide - Jason Birchmeier
Following his career-establishing debut on Dr. Dre's The Chronic in 1992, Kurupt quickly proved that he wasn't your standard West Coast gangsta rapper. No, Kurupt is much more than that -- he has brash charisma and more than enough attitude. He doesn't shy away from drama and isn't afraid to speak his mind. Yet character only goes so far -- even in rap. On Space Boogie: Smoke Oddessey, Kurupt finally brings some substantial creativity to that sense of character. This was what prevented Streetz Is a Mutha from being a great album -- he had rhymes and beats but couldn't bring it all together into a satisfying album. He does that here, to an extent. Yes, Kurupt finally manages to bring a sense of songcraft to his rhymes on Space Boogie. Every song here seems to capture a different motif: Some take a feel-good Cali-sunshine approach, others capture a theatrical gangsta approach. In addition, Kurupt employs a number of talented West Coast guests Snoop Dogg, Xzibit, Nate Dogg, which brings a sense of variety, and employs primarily one top West Coast producer Fredwreck, which brings a sense of cohesion. So when you break the album down to its elements, Space Boogie has all the makings of a perfect rap album. But it ultimately falls a bit short. More than anything, Kurupt's songcraft goes a little too far as he seems willing to try everything from hardcore rap "The Hardest..." to pop-rap "It's Over". And by sadly inviting along Fred Durst and DJ Lethal from Limp Bizkit, in addition to Everlast, Kurupt's ill-fated crossover ambitions seem a little too overt. Still, even if Space Boogie doesn't quite realize its ambitions by overreaching, it shows that Kurupt's on a steady path to superstardom.

    Definitely Kurupts Best

    I'm a huge Dogg Pound fan, but this album is the best of them all so far. That's pretty good considering Tha Streetz iz a Mutha album was off the hook. If you like West Coast rap this album is one that you can listen to all the way through without skipping a song.

    Straight Gangster!

    This is my favorite album right now. Havn't even actually had a favorite before, but this album is so wicked! The beats on this album are just soooo gangster, straight up and down! The songs Space Boogie, and Onsite...OMG! You ain't ever heard s*** like this before, just make ya wanna go cruise'n and pickup girls or somethin cause they make you feel so good. Fredwreck is the man...and Nate Dogg adds his gangsta touch to a few of these tracks. Only thing is the Fred Durst appearence, I don't know about that...kinda wack..the song (Lay It On Back) isn't that great. Anyways this is sick album, bunch of tight beats, nice flows, good appearences/cameos whatever. I give it two thumbs up :)
