    M.O.P. has succeeded in doing what few hardcore rap groups have been able to do, by increasing the quality of production on their album and still keeping that same raw, rough feel that typically disappears as money enters the equation. While the album is solid from start to finish, "Anticipation" stands out, partly inspired by KRS-One's "MC's Act Like They Don't Know." The title track, "Firing Squad," is a slow, rumbling tune with some low-end piano riffs helping to keep it moving along. DJ Premier of Gangstarr makes an appearance on "Downtown Swinga ('96)," providing a funky bassline for the duo to scream over. This is what you've waited for. ~ Brad Mills

  • Critic Reviews
    Vibe (11/96, p.154) - "...FIRING SQUAD stacks the deck and takes home the jackpot by employing DJ Premier for the bulk of the production...M.O.P....perform like few others do--as though their lives depend on it."
    The Source (11/96, p.129) - 3.5 Mics - Dope - "...Brownsville's Mash Out Posse put a serious dent on the rhyme game and establish themselves as two of the ever bless the mic....nothing but the raw goods..."
    Rap Pages (11/96, p.32) - "...Primo is behind the boards on the album's best cuts....FIRING SQUAD is one of the year's finest releases..."
