-author: Mr. Dar Nice job on your second full length cd! The production is a lot tighter and the lyrics are a lot more meaningful. You're flow is dope! Keep up the good work. From Spank, Balistic, Mr. Dar, Blackhand, and the VOD RECORDINGS staff, we wish you the best of luck! Peace.
-author: Truuf I had the chance to listen to some of Slade's older material and then I was personally handed The Revenge CD. I listen to lots of cd's and a few even stay in my 5 cd player. SLade's Revenge is one of those keepers. It takes me back to a time when hip hop was pure and unadulterated. Today's hip hop talks about the same stuff over and over but Slade's Revenge is refreshing to the senses. I've told my DJ's that this is a must have in your collection....Rated Top 10 on the Streetz!! And dats da Truuf!
