This VP anthology does a proper job compiling the very best of the self-described "yellow like cheese" walking jewlery store... King Yellow. You can tell a Yellowman fan (who isn't?) put this together, the track order is meticulous: the "Mad Over Me-Shorties" combo, ending with the epic "Morning Ride." (Would have like to see "Step It Out Of Babylon" though). One Yellowman question that always evaded me: does he really get all the tang he sings about... and who would win in a bravado battle... Yellow or Big Daddy Kane? 19 tracks spread over double vinyl, recommended.
