After the success of Brand Nubian's first album ONE FOR ALL, Grand Puba chose to go solo...
This was quite a brave choice to make from a relative newcomer on the scene but as it turned out it was probably the right choice to make. Both Puba and Brand Nubian went on to release very very solid albums. I think a lot of Nubian fans feared for their future when the puba left as many saw him as the most gifted of the bunch, A fact that Sadat X did very well to prove not true!
I'm gonna avoid writing too much on Brand Nubian for now as i want to keep that for a later date so i'm just gonna focus on Puba.
I guess a lot of people didnt know what was gonna happen with his brave solo joint but the first single went on to become a classic of the golden era! "360 What Goes Around" was just what was needed to put people's hopes up about the album. The album itself didnt dissapoint? it was never a 5 mic classic but it had touches of sheer class all over it. Puba never claimed to be the greatest rapper but what he did give you was clever and well thought out hiphop!
The album was a great achievment really considering he had braved a solo career on the back of a stone wall hip hop classic with brand nubian so check it out.
And for people who want to do as Puba Says and "check the resume" i would seriously advise it! its quite unbelievable the amount of work Puba has put in over the years
