After dropping an street level classic in 1995 (The Natural), Mic Geronimo drops Vendetta in late 1997. There is a significant difference here than in The Natural. The beats and rhymes seem more tailored towards the mainstream audience. The beats are pretty dope and are more relaxed for the most part. Some beats still have that phat boom-bap flava like on the first album, yet many have more of a funky vibe (similar to G-Funk on a few). Production goes to many names, so a few include Irv Gotti, Puff Daddy, Buckwild, Pete Rock (yes!); even Twista's homie, the Legendary Traxster does a beat. One thing to note is that there are more playa, girl flirtin' joints here, which may be good or bad depending on the listener.

Guests are minimal as well (rapping on 2 songs and doin the hook on 3) , and quite a few grew into some of the bigger names in rap shortly after this album dropped (Jay-Z, LOX, DMX, Ja Rule, and another great but under rated rapper, Tragedy Khadafi). Production is great on almost every song and handled by some bigger names. Irv Gotti & Lil Rob did 2 songs, Puff Daddy, Pete Rock, Buckwild, Prestige, Legendary Traxter, Havoc, K-Def, P & Time, Chrin Lange, Prince Kasan all do 1 song. A must have rap album from an era where rap was still about lyrics and not...
