Trapped In Crime by C-Murder deals with insanity inside urban communities. The environmental elements that lead to the insanity inside urban communities are crime, sex, pollution, drugs, and violence. Being trapped in a life of crime is a vicious cycle. Gangsta rap at its finest from No Limit Records during their prime.
Concrete Jungle deals with insanity of being in an urban community with the crime, drugs, and violence. All of those environmental elements led to the insanity inside urban communities. It’s mostly lower income areas that deal with this drama. Take note of the Marvin Gaye and Grandmaster Flash samples. It’s like a concrete jungle sometimes I wonder how it keeps me from going under.
C-Murder stayed true on Forever TRU by sticking to his New Orleans, Louisiana gumbo roots of bounce music and gangsta rap. C-Murder is staying TRU and being down for his crown.

Not too many people know this but when C-Murder had released “Down 4 My Niggaz” as his lead single from Trapped In Crime, KLC’s name was replaced with XL and Carlos Stephens in the credits and liner notes. That is why XL and Carlos Stephens got credit for producing the song Down 4 My Niggaz instead of KLC. So it was KLC, XL, and Carlos Stephens who produced Down 4 My Niggaz despite KLC having produced the song first. Ironically enough KLC was shouted out in the lyrics and was credited as the sole producer of the song when it first appeared on Snoop’s No Limit Top Dogg album.
To all the No Limit fans that got the promo CD edition of C-Murder – Trapped In Crime (#50083), The promo CD contains the unreleased tracks Uptown Thing, the original version of What You Bout with a different beat and the complete version of Thug In Yo Life which includes C-Murder’s 2nd verse that was removed from the retail album.
I rate this album 5/5*****!
