Album Review

Although it runs a little long and is lacking in imagination, Cru's Da Dirty 30 is a solid debut from the hardcore rappers. Musically, Da Dirty 30 works the standard post-gangsta, hardcore territory -- there are deep bass grooves, but also menacing, skeletal soundscapes in the vein of the Wu-Tang Clan. Lyrically, Cru can be a little weak, but there are times when the crew pulls it all together, and at those moments, Da Dirty 30 is strong, invigorating hardcore hip-hop.
Leo Stanley, Rovi
