Piece Of Mind: Screwed & Chopped
Label: Suave House
Piece of Mind is one of the Dirty South's forgotten classics. Unlike Suave House peers 8Ball and MJG, Tela didn't establish a lasting career, though he continued to release albums that paled in comparison to his memorable gold-selling debut. The best thing about Piece of Mind may be its gangsta funk production. Beats from Slice Tee and future star Jazze Pha (the latter handled the singles "Tired of Ballin'" and "Sho Nuff") complement Tela's impressive lyrical performance on flossing and pimpin' in Memphis.
