Released:
Label: Steady Flow Enterprises
Grand Daddy's first album was one of the last great albums from the legendary Cold Chillin' label. Daddy has a deep, hypnotizing voice and a languid, cocksure flow. It's the perfect foil for the strutting bass line of "The U Is Smooth." He's not a great lyricist, and the songs don't always hit the mark -- "Pick up the Pace" needs to heed its own advice -- but tracks "Something New" and "Soul Touch" are sublime, reminding listeners how simple and effective break-driven hip-hop can sound.
