Label: Jive Heritage
When Jive re-released the Click's tape-only 1992 release Down and Dirty in 1994, they clipped and polished, pairing some of the raps with new beats and eliminating five of the tracks altogether. This edition restores this g-funk classic to its full glory. You get more of E-40's rubbery, mind-melting flow (check out "Mr. Flamboyant") and more of D Shot, B-Legit and Suga T's tales of balling, "bitches" and 'hood bravado. Songs such as "Get Drunk" and "Old School" prove that the Bay was getting hyphy before the word even existed.
