Though billed as A.G.
's first solo effort, The Dirty Version
is actually a collaborative effort between A.G.
and his Ghetto Dwella
and Party Arty
). Wherever A.G.
emerges, beats are sure to follow, and the production (Showbiz
, Buckwild, Diamond D
, and Lord Finesse
) is the LP's backbone. Even though A.G.
's frequent collaborations with the Ghetto Dwellaz
create disconcerting gaps in continuity, there's no disputing the groupings between A.G.
and his esteemed D.I.T.C.
cohorts, "Drop It Heavy" featuring KRS-One
and Big Pun
, "Weed Scented" featuring Guru
, and "Underground Life" featuring Fat Joe
and G.D. While A.G.
runs the risk of overexposing himself before the highly anticipated D.I.T.C.
project, this serves as an adequate appetizer before the impending feast.
