    From the opening "The March Prelude," a ghostly, lugubrious call-and-response number that references field recordings from the beginning of the century, one can tell that VENNI VETTI VECCI is not going to be a picnic in the woods. Slow, grinding beats and ominous horror-movie keyboard samples provide ballast for Ja Rule's raw-throated delivery as he kicks rhymes about the hardships of street-life and his own prowess as a street thug.
    Considering the murder threats of "World's Most Dangerous" and the chilling narrative of "The Murderers," Ja Rule doesn't sound like the kind of guy you'd want mad at you. Such cuts as "Race Against Time" and "Only Begotten Son" show the rapper wrestling with existential questions and Christian themes. For the most part, however, there is little here to brighten the dark reality of inner city life. This is hardcore gangta rap of the rawest and most uncompromising nature.

  • Critic Reviews
    Rolling Stone (8/19/99, pp.111-2) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...Ja gets maximum flossage out of his down-and-dirty Queens rasp....it's a pleasure to hear a rapper who just wants to make you feel something."
    Vibe (6,7/99, p.182) - "...The first single, 'Holla, Holla', is a sweltering call and response that picks up where [Jay-Z's] 'Can I Get A...' left off. Then Ja reunites with his Murder, Inc. cohorts Jay-Z and DMX for 'It's Murda'....Ja is definitely a superstar in the making."
