"URBNET compilations have historically been a "best of" for both the label and for Canadian talent that doesn't always get equal representation among the coastally centered hip-hop of the East, West and Third (Gulf) scenes of the United States. Ironically one of the best acts here is a Toronto based group consisting of MC Tragic and Rockwell called Philly Moves, and if you mistook them for a Philly rap group I doubt they'd be mad at it since they're nice either way. Whether you're smoking "Purple Leafs" with Mr. Brady and LMNO, or eating "Oreos" with Elaquent, you can definitely get as high as a "Satellite" with Def 3 and Ceschi over a mellow groove. Owing to the random selection of artists and songs there's no real theme or selling point other than "it's some good music" - but that's enough."
