Title - 'Welcome to the Zoo' (Atlantic)
Artist - Gorilla Zoe

I have been waiting for this album ever since I heard Zoe's early cuts. I was even more anxious when his radio hype song, 'Hood Nigga' came out. But, as most things in life, this album does not do Zoe (the newest member of Boyz N Da Hood) total justice. It's a very hard album; harder than I would have imagined from hearing just those couple of pre-tracks. If you like Zoe's hard-hitting lyrics and raspy voice you will love this album; that's a fact.

But, one thing I think this album lacks is a good variety of beats. I thought Yung Joc's new album had a good breakdown of variety, which Zoe was a big part of on the single 'Coffee Shop.' This album is a good buy, but you probably won't be caught with any surprises from this, Zoe's debut album. (Note: Oh yeah, try to find a song called 'Wild Thing' ... it's to the Tone Loc beat and amazingly he actually sounds like him!).
