Review: Prince Ital Joe – s/t

Prince Ital Joe’s self-titled album from 1994 is one of Death Row Records lesser known unreleased albums. The selt-titled Prince Ital Joe album was supposed to come out on Hollywood Records and Death Row Records. However this did not happen due to bootlegging and focus on other projects. A lot of this album was recorded at Can-Am Studios with artists from Death Row Records. Daz produced beats for the album. Some of the features are unknown as well. Prince Ital Joe was doing that reggae shit.

There is a CD for this album that was issued on a red CD-r says that it was released in 1997 which contains unleaked and unreleased tracks. Neither had covers and only came in a regular CD case. However the album was bootlegged during that time which prompted Suge to make the decision to shelve the album.

On the song Stereotype, Prince Ital Joe played a role of an exaggerated stereotype and got what he needed to get out of doing it using his mysterious vocals. Prince Ital Joe went mad wicked on the song Wicked Run with his wicked rasta reggae vocals. The runs in his vocals were shimmering. He killed it as always. You can hear the reggae and dancehall from Jamaica on the song. Some Day is a song that will leave you and have you feeling all type of emotions.

I rate this album 2/5**.
