The Payback EP by C-Stud Vill has those eerie G-Funk sines and heavy bass over banging hard hitting beats for those whom are fans of rap music overall. Fans of San Antonio rap will truly appreciate the sound coming from this single. Gangsta rap at its finest.
Payback is an EP/single that legendary rapper C-Stud Vill dropped on cassette in 1995 on Mystic Records that sold over 33,000 units in its first year. The Payback EP was a demo C-Stud Vill recorded in 1990. C-Stud Vill, Papa C, Anthony Jasper Sr., and Anthony Jasper Jr. were responsible for promoting and producing this EP. Legendary songs C-Stud Vill Trick-uh-Treat (radio version and street version) and Payback are included on this EP. Songs included are Trick-uh-Treat (radio version and street version), Payback, and 1 to 10.
C Stud Vill recorded a song called Trick-uh-Treat in 1993. Papa C engineered and mastered the song. Soon enough, Trick-uh-Treat became a hit with the underground and received some radio play in San Antonio. The hit single Trick-uh-Treat exploded producing sales of over 30,000 copies alone in 1993. The single had sold over 33,000 units later that year. This success gained the attention of an independent record label called Mystic Records operated by Anthony Jasper Sr., Anthony Jasper Jr., and Papa C.
Due to his lack of knowledge of the music business, C-Stud Vill was left with an unlicensed and non copyrighted cassette master to the demo EP and lost contact with Papa C. After searching for 3 years, Papa C was found and released those full masters to the 4 song EP in 1995 soon after the EP was licensed and copyrighted. Mystic Records released the 4 song EP on cassette only. There was never any CD version.
Due to inexperience of the music business, C-Stud signed a 2 year contract with Mystic Records without a legal review of the contract which entailed the release of all his music rights to Mystic Records. Due to financial strains within the record label, C-Stud Vill was released out of his contract and given back all his music rights.
Now this tape was released back when niggaz and eses in San Antonio were trying to be in that gang shit. That’s why are so many disses and signs of disrespect towards other gangs.
The song Trick-uh-Treat is gangsta rap at its finest. Trick-uh-Treat has an eerie gangsta rap sound over grimey beats. Perfect for halloween. Real eerie sounds similar to PKO, K-Sam, Natas, and Esham.

Papa C engineered and mastered the song. Anthony Jasper Sr. and Anthony Jasper Jr. did the final mixing for this song.
The song Trick-uh-Treat is an example of gangsta rap due to the set tripping and neighborhood rivalries with enemy gangs. New Light Village is Blood territory. East Terrace Gangsters (East Terrace Gangster Crips/East Terrace Courts Gangster Crips/East Terrace Crips from East Terrace Courts) and Skyline Crips from Skyline Park are enemies with New Light Village Bloods and Blood Stone Nation (Blood Stones). Skyline Park and New Light Village have a neighborhood rivalry with each other due to gang politics.
A judge says, “Plea bargain denied. I find you, Mr. Villian, guilty of all charges. I now sentence you to 15 years in the state penitentiary.”
The East Terrace Gangsters want to fuck with C Stud Vill. He doesn’t think so. Not today. Coming straight out of the penitentiary headed straight for San Antonio, Texas. Ready to bust a cap on mark ass niggaz. Making a swift decision. He smokes a motherfucker leaving the body in a plastic bag undiscovered. He loads up the .45 to smoke a snitch. C Stud Vill is down with the Dog Gang (UNLV/New Light Village Bloods). You better think twice before fucking with C Stud Vill. Because C Stud Vill is the crazy motherfucker that took your homie’s life.
He be slanging that cocaine. Holy shit. The 5-0 is on his back tracing his path. So now he has to bail out. Niggaz get the fuck out. He is headed back to the jailhouse if he gets caught. Now he is getting his serve on as he gang bangs.
At the 2:49 mark in the song is where C Stud Vill begins to engage in sexual activity. He’s got a young bitch and an old bitch. He puts both of them to the test to see which one of them can really handle that dick. Oral sex ensues. It quickly turns into a gangbang session. He wants his dick sucked and his butt licked.
At the 3:01 mark in the song is where C Stud Vill introduces members of UNLV/New Light Village Bloods. Lil Red is in the click. Then you got C Dogg chilling with the AK. Then you got T Dogg chilling with the 12 gauge. Swerving around the corner, he sees members of East Terrace Courts Gangster Crips. Lil Red lets off a round of bullets. Shot the fucker in the head. Them niggaz straight up insane.
C Stud Vill disses neighborhoods East Terrace Courts and Skyline Park right at the very end of Trick-uh-Treat. That was a diss to those neighborhoods.
Payback has a deep dark eerie underground sound with reduced treble and highly reduced bass. C Stud Vill claimed to be the craziest motherfucker out of the SA streets in the 90s with his finger on the trigger looking for fools to slip. What C Stud Vill gave people in the 90s is the payback. Another song perfect for halloween time.
The song begins with several gunshots heard from a far distance. C Stud Vill says, “I told ya’ll crab hoes.” Crabs is a derogatory term aimed at Crips. This part of Payback is aimed at East Terrace Courts Gangster Crips and Skyline Park Crips.
C Stud Vill is Mr. UNLV and he’s great. He is the craziest motherfucker in the hood. Niggaz always come to him with some of that hoe ass shit. Keep talking that shit and you’ll die that quick. C Stud Vill is quick to grab the trigger. The ex-convict is up the house. What C Stud Vill gave people in the 90s is the payback.
So now he’s kicking up some of that dust. You’ll die fucking with him. See the red color he is sporting. He set trips. C Dogg is in the car serving as the getaway driver. C Dogg laid one fucker down. He has no love for crabs. So C Dogg gave East Terrace Courts Gangster Crips ass the payback.
Niggaz on the corner are about to set trip. These motherfuckers are dressed in flue (blue). These people are either East Terrace Courts Gangster Crips or Skyline Crips. They are staring him down. C Stud Vill has the biggest get. These motherfuckers got caught slipping off guard on their block. He popped them in the chest. One them handed over gold chains and earrings. This included fresh Nikes. C Stud Vill is wearing red about to do another jack.
1 To 10 was a short (55 seconds) less than a minute freestyle rap with gangsta rap lyrics. Gangsta rap meets freestyle rap on 1 To 10. Honestly 1 To 10 was too short of a track should have been extended even longer. The song was recorded in 1993 and was recorded again in 1995.
I rate this EP 5/5*****!
