All songs written by Spice 1. Contains samples from "Lyrical Gangbang" (as performed by Dr. Dre), "Sweet Moments" (as performed by Love Unlimited Orchestra) and "Dukey's Stick" (as performed by George Duke).
Spice 1 continues his bleak, stripped-down version of gangsta rap with 187 He Wrote, an album that can be harrowing and appalling. Throughout the record, the spare, funky production keeps the music engaging, making the disturbing lyrics cut even deeper. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
