    On his solo debut, REEL TO REEL, Grand Puba works his trademark laidback nasal flow, balancing naughty narratives of his skirt-chasing persona over 15 tracks of jazzy, early-'90s boom-bap. Released shortly after Puba's break with seminal New York crew Brand Nubian, REEL TO REEL features production courtesy of Stimulated Dummies, Kid Capri, and Grand Puba himself as well as guestwork from the Brand New Heavies and a young Mary J. Blige.

  • Critic Reviews
    Rolling Stone (1/7/93, p.46) - 3.5 Stars - Very Good - "...if it has a less aggressive tone than many other rap albums, REEL TO REEL is no less funky: Puba is such a gifted rapper, he could probably have made do with a mike, one drumstick and a plastic bucket...Puba's mastery is beyond reproach..."
    Entertainment Weekly (10/30/92, p.86) - "..Even though REEL TO REEL ends up sounding like different versions of the same song, it's a great song.." - Rating: B+
    Q (1/93, p.81) - 3 Stars - Good - " LL Cool J, [Puba] is committed to grooves that make cars rock even when they're parked...[Puba] has one of those slurred rapping styles that moves between rapid fire and word in your ear intimacy without losing the beat..."
    Vibe (Fall/92, p.30) - "..a free-spirited, witty, rough-edged slice of B-boy life, with all its inherent contradictions..."
    The Source (12/92, p.70) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "..The Grandman is back to show and prove his unique style and flavor...Puba has definitely landed on boardwalk, as his flow is backed up with top notch production.."
