Shock of the Hour

The last of the former N.W.A rappers to come out with a solo album, MC Ren must have gotten a note from his mother giving him permission to be late. Shock’s shoot-’em-up and slap-’em-up themes are anything but shocking. Side B’s stab at black nationalistic rhetoric rings hollow only because side A is chock-full of ”bitches.” However, on Shock of the Hour, Ren’s raps still sound as commanding as they did on Niggaz4life, and the musical production is a pretty decent rendition of Dr. Dre’s patented slow, ominous gangsta funk.
