  • Veteran West Coast rapper has been around the block enough times to have something to say about it, and listening to his impassive, masterful depiction of the gangsta lifestyle on THE SHADIEST ONE is somewhat akin to reading Mario Puzo's detailed, unflinching accounts of Mafia life. You're spared neither the gritty aspects of the tale nor the unavoidably human ones. Aided in his endeavors by longtime West Coast compatriot Ice Cube, as well as Too Short, E-40 and CJ Mac, WC shades his tunes with touches of funk and R&B, and keeps the arrangements eerily atmospheric, so as to provide the proper setting for his grim underworld visions on THE SHADIEST ONE.
