There are some skits in the album which some may find offensive, but are really pretty funny. The track has stunning raps by all three members and also has a soulful beat. It's easily still a classic song. A true G-Funk gem. There is a "Freestyle" track with The Dove Shack rapping straight off the tops of their heads.
They do an excellent job, over a hard gangsta-style beat proving how they got their record deals! Bo-Roc even coughs in the middle and raps, "Excuse me, I had to cough" and then goes straight on, amazing. The three emcees take on subjects of having to survive from day-to-day, the pressure of being black in today's society, and other problems. A classic song again. Overall, this is a great album. It's a shame these guys never got the credit they deserved. If I could've made the choice, they would've gone platinum easily.
The rise of Warren G and the token G-Funk sound in the early 90's brought a slew of other artists trying jump on the money making bandwagon. While most of these groups sounded like imitators, a couple broke the mold, and expanded the G-Funk style. There were many factors that made this album a classic. First, was that Warren G provided many of the beats while he was still in his prime.
Secondly, and most importantly, is that the 3 emcees that make up Dove Shack all have personality and versitility something that Warren G lacks. Each emcee has a distinct voice and flow: C-Knight's smoothed out delivery, Bo-Roc's who raps and sings deep, breezy flow, and 2Scoops nasal, rapid fire rhymes. Almost every song on this album is a classic. And furthermore, the album has the best skits I've heard on anywhere so far. While most rapper's skits tends to be monotonous, The Dove Shack's are hilarious enough and offensive that I listen to them as much as I do the songs!

I might be a little biased in my review, but when you're out in Long Beach with some west coast funk playing in your ear, walking up MLK and PCH, everything just sounds better.
That was what was going on a few days ago, while having the Dove Shack's CD in heavy rotation. The album has a laid back G-funk vibe, like most albums that come out of Warren G. The group's rhymes are solid, but throughout the album are a few catchy hooks. Afterward, the album really begins to loose it's momentum. Only two tracks at the end of the album that are worth listening to are "We Funk" and the rap version of "Summertime In The LBC" which is almost as the same as the original, but there are a few rap verses at the end.
Still despite some missteps towards the end of the album, This Is The Shack still delivers what the west coast have been known for back in the mid 90's.
So basically all albums from Warren G. If you can I highly recommend you grab a copy of This Is The Shack, as well as the other albums mentioned in this review, which are essential for a west coast fan. F Ya Mouth 2.
