For their second album, Boot Camp affiliate Heltah Skeltah took a more commercial route, for better and worse. Emcees Rock and Ruck (aka Sean Price) still make a great combination, with Ruck delivering sharp, sometimes acidic lines about the difference between a pawn and a rook (one guess which camp he falls into) and Rock delivering looser, more stylized raps. There are way too many guest spots, and the subject matter is lighter and monotonous, but single "I Ain't Having That," the title track and "Call of the Wild" deliver that old Heltah Skeltah griminess.
