DELINQUENT HABITS Here Come the Horns

Lookie, there are 15 actual tracks on this record, no BS interludes!!! This gave me a little confidence, and then I saw Sen Dog from Cypress Hill was involved and I spun it. The raps were pretty tuff guy, about the maintenance of personal space and the concept of respect, all with a Tex-Mex vibe. No Spanish raps but some very interesting latin horn samples throughout. Each track had a redeeming aspect, and the general tempo was upbeat. A very funky record.
