This came out in 2002 – or at least that’s when I got it. Here’s what I said about it back then (with some minor editing):

 


What kind of dreams does Fieldy have? Why, pipe dreams, of course.

The Korn bassist goes to pot — literally and figuratively — on this high-concept solo joint, huffing and puffing his way through 40 minutes of hemp-happy hip-hop and Glock-waving gangsta rap like some Snoop Dogg wannabe from the ’burbs. Like any good wigga, Fieldy has learned his lessons well — perhaps too well. The bottom-dwelling, slow-rolling bass lines might as well have been sampled from old Dre grooves, while Fieldy’s nasal drug raps could be Eminem outtakes. His bandmates supply the occasional creepy vocal or heavier-hitting groove, but Rock N Roll Gangster is ultimately more corny than Korny.
