Neva Again is the debut album by West Coast hip hop artist Kam. It is executive produced by Kam's cousin Ice Cube and produced by a variety of West Coast producers including DJ Pooh, Rashad and Chris Charity. It features no guest vocalists besides Ice Cube on "Watts Riot." In addition, DJ Train, DJ Pooh and Brian G provide scratches on various tracks and Anthony "Soup" Holmes plays keyboards on one song. It is a highly acclaimed yet rather unknown album. Critics support it for its G-funk beats and socially conscious lyrics.
