Grand Puba

Maxwell Dixon, better known as Grand Puba, is best-known for fronting Brand Nubian for the group's first album -- and the excellent full-blown reunion album, 1998's Foundation -- but he actually made his commercial debut with the Masters of Ceremony, a group who released a 1988 album (Dynamite) on 4th & Broadway. Puba went solo with 1992's Reel to Reel, which featured the excellent singles "360 Degrees (What Goes Around)" and "Check It Out" (with Mary J. Blige). Never the most prolific rap artist, it took three years for a sophomore release (1995's 2000), and his third album (the lackluster Understand This) didn't come until 2001. Throughout his career, his lyrical schemes have been drizzled with the influence of his Nation of Islam beliefs. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi

His Nation of Islam beliefs? They must don't have anything to talk about because if his albums are drizzled with his beliefs, so are NAS, AZ, Ice Cube, Rakim, Big Daddy Kane....... The list goes on with cats who are apart of the NOI. Find something else to talk about, smh!

Agree...2000 was a sleeper album similar to Jungle Brothers second album. Amazing albums that were a little bit ahead of their time or just outside the periphery of the taste of the day. 2000 is in my top 25 hiphop albums from the 90s

Very undervalued album from the 90s

Always love Puba since the...before he starting spitting...I was there!!!!!!! ! !

Puba is easily one of the best mc's when it comes to effortless flows and off the head raps. Way too underrated. Also, influential to black culture since he helped to bring the 5% Nation to the youth through music. Who remembers when he killed the sprite commercial w/ his off top flow?
