I thought the callback at the end to the Westside Connection skit "Gangsta's Don't Dance" lent the man at least one ounce of consistency, though. Sounds a couple of degrees removed from everything else presented on Based On A True Story thus far, but for Album) reason this time: "Can't Stop" is actually an Ant Banks song that he produced for his own project, Big Thangsthat features E and Mack This is the exact same song, included on here because I don't know, money?
Contractual obligations? Ant Banks who contributed three additional beats to this album, including another track that also appeared elsewhere, which we'll get to in a bit lost at a card game? Regardless of the circumstances, "Can't Stop" contains a Mack 10 performance that is more focused than usual, most likely thanks to the collaborators involved, so if this inclusion caused the song to receive wider exposure, there's really no fault in that.
Just a pro tip. So Mack 10's effort pretty much falls the way you would expect it to: it's entirely forgettable and you won't give a damn about it. Ant Banks's instrumental just kind of hands there, as does our host's weed-carrying work wife Squeak Ru from Allfrumtha Iwho lends the track its hook.
This already constitutes more words than necessary for a song that isn't worth it, so Because Ice Cube couldn't leave well enough alone, he convinced What You Need? (Dopeman 97) - Mack 10 - Based On A True Story (CD host to craft an entire song around terminology that he came up with way back in the day to describe inferior beings, terminology that never truly caught on in the hip hop community it's been used here and there, but never consistentlyand yet it is still better than referring to vagina as "cock".
Binky's instrumental has pop leanings, which is fine, What You Need? (Dopeman 97) - Mack 10 - Based On A True Story (CD, since this song is silly as shit anyway: it's pretty difficult to repeatedly use the word "guppy" without cracking a smile at some point.
Oh hey, I didn't talk about Mack 10's performance at all. To be fair, our host sounds alright enough over the course of the track, but this was still a bitch to actually listen to all the way through. I think you can hear my teeth clenching throughout this fucking paragraph. A mostly-faithful cover of the N. Mack 10 largely sticks to the script, tweaking a few pronouns and updating some references over Ant Banks's re-creation-slash-homage to the original beat, with an uncredited friend riding with the ad-lib shotgun, at least up until the final verse, where our host veers off course and tries to insert What You Need?
(Dopeman 97) - Mack 10 - Based On A True Story (CD own threats and put-downs, which ultimately was not a good idea. I believe this cover also appeared on Straight Outta Compton: N. There Was Rap compilation, and it's fine as a sort-of straight cover, but it'll never eclipse the original or anything. Immediately following his cover of N. The beat, to Binky's credit, is actually pretty good, and doesn't sound like its predecessor at all, which was great, but our host's bars don't venture further than the original's, and after having already sat through one song about that shit, it's nearly impossible to get through another one.
Oh well. I liked the musicthough. Album) how did that happen? Produced by Soopafly and, yep, Mack 10 himself, "Only In California", also released as a single, features our host alongside two West Coast veterans who excel at shit-talking over thumping beats.
