    If they didn't get back together with Grand Puba for this installment then I don't think I'll be checking it out anytime soon---I can only listen to Sadat X for so long before I want to shoot myself...

    Brand Nubian: Fire In The Soul
    By Topher Sanders


    It’s been more than half a decade since we’ve heard from Lord Jamar, Sadat X, Alamo, and Grand Puba as the collective Brand Nubian. In that time, the quartet has kept busy with solo projects, acting, and simply being family men.

    Now signed to Babygrande Records, Brand Nubian is prepped to reintroduce the industry to a cohesive quality lost in the age of obsessive guest spots and trendy production techniques.

    yep puba is back on this album. They claim that on this album they are bringing it back to their roots, however I dont really know how quality this album can be. I am a huge fan of early brand nubian, However I didnt really like any of the solo albums either.

    i'm a fan of old brand nubian, but
    those web samples are coming off real
    contrived and indistinct, even worse
    they claim 'it's brand new baby, it's
    brand new'. and lord jamar sounds like prodigy
    on one track, then next somebody is sounding
    like cormega(general queensbridge/mobb deep
    production vibe included)..pooey.

    this page lets you listen to snipets of every song. not really fellin it. do yourself a favor and go classic and pick up "In God We Trust" if you dont already have it. Much better beats, and No Puba = 100% good lyrics.

    If I only had 12 bucks today, believe I'm coppin Mobb Deep.

    Brand Nubian are really reaching on this one. Even if it is with mc grand pu' comin' straight from the babalu. They haven't really come out with anything strong since "Wake Up" days. Damn, that album was hot, especially the SD50 remix. Whatever happened with that production group?
