Da Backwudz – Wood Work: CD | Rap Music Guide
Whatcha Know ‘Bout My Life. The serious songs are snapshots of ghetto reality and general alienation, most of which maintain some wor, but the peak of the second half, “Feelin’ Lonely,” addresses several quite serious topics. Just as the first half of the record was both unabashedly crunk and self-effacingly satirical, the second half is poignant, plaintive, and sometimes touching, but without getting too serious to be believable.
The eccentricity and versatility of Da Backwudz’s music place them outside the categorical box of crunk music in the s Southern rap scene — but not that far.
That track features the most inspiring moment of the record, in which one of the song’s fictional protagonists is wrongly scorned for being gay. With this track, and the slow-burning, entirely serious but still clubworthy “Lock And Load” that follows it, Da Backwudz back up their political statements with undeniable fervency.
Half an hour into the album, you’re jumping out of your seat and getting crunk, but you’re smiling and laughing while doing so. Tracks like “You Gonna Luv Me” and “The World Could Be Yours” — also produced by Blacka Midwesterner who does little to affect the duo’s Southernness — combine Southern machine bump with flipped soul samples worthy of Just Blaze or Kanye Westand the MCs are adept over slow-grinding funk and bracingly tense soul, utilizing their heavy drawls and lyrical versatility.

They kick off the bacwkudz with the most obvious OutKast reference, the swinging, uptempo “Welcome 2 Da Backwudz,” which twangs with Dirty South charm, and follow that with their first single, “You Gonna Luv Me,” which rolls slowly through your hood and proclaims the arrival of the next Atlanta hip hop phenomenon. When they’re throwing down and flossin’ hard on the first half of the record, the rhymes are subtly tongue in cheek, and when they’re standing up for their rights on the second half, they never forget to relieve the pressure by chillin’ and letting loose every once in a while.
Even without the full support and crazy claims from Austinda Backwudz would have a lot to live up to. If Da Backwudz followed a track like “Fantastic” with some Dead Prez flag-burner, the record would be absurd, but that is not Backwudz style.
