Consumer Guide Reviews:

2Hype [Select, 1988]
If professional rap can get tired, it can also get busy. Joyous safari-movie go go, Billy Crystal rip, James Brown rip, James Brown rip, above all the bust-this "Gittin' Funky"--every one gits funky. And when they stick in some sexist shit, the joke ends up on them. B+
