Chalk another one up for DJ Paul Nice - he certainly is one of the nicest producers on the indy circuit at the moment. He’s constructed a simple little track for Masta Ace and Guru’s “Conflict”, consisting of a prevalent Alchemist-styled bassline, along with a piece of “The Bridge”, and a piano capping it off. Guru and Ace each contribute a verse, then share the third, and it works.
B-side, “The Booth”, also taken from the forthcoming Street Values compilation, features Strick, who was last heard somewhere on Tommy Boy, leaves little to be desired on “The Booth”. Outdated, post-Biggie NYC thugisms that describe “The Booth”, with each non-rhyming line of the song ending with “The Booth”. Considering that every line in the song ends with “The Booth”, “The Booth” gets really repetitive, really fast, kind of like this paragraph about “The Booth”. Stick to side A.
