Consumer Guide Reviews:

Act a Fool [Capitol, 1988]
Looking for Biz Markie Compton-style, I got a gold abuser whose idea of a fool is my idea of a punk motherfucker--somebody who smokes cheeb and drinks 40s, then assaults women. D.J. Pooh (and James Brown) carry him until the anticlimactic "I Got a Cold," which records for posterity the funkiest snurfling you've ever heard in your life. C+
