The lyrical content of the album gained Eiht the "Double-Sticker" on the front cover of the LP. The sticker read "The lyrical content on this album solely expressed the views of the artist". This is also the album where Eiht begins to produce, hense forming "EIHTHYPE Productions" with himself, long-time beat-maker DJ Slip, with William Zimmerman, "Willie Z", on the keyboard. We Come Strapped has a lot of dark-beats, but all the beats on the album have a funky rhythm, especially the hit single "All For The Money" with its funky guitar riff in the back ground, as Eiht's lyrics portray the life of a kid from the streets doing whatever he can to survive. DJ Mike-T does some scratching on the album as well, bringing back the feeling of the old CMW albums. There are "endoludes" on this album, which are basically interludes, showing off some instrumentals that EIHTHYPE Productions have done. This album was also released at the height of Eiht's feud with DJ Quik, and Eiht throws more than a few insults on the track "Def-Wish III". "We Come Strapped" was released and debuted at number 5 on the Billboard 200 and also at number 1 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums. The album was eventually certified gold by the RIAA. It has been MC Eiht's most successful album to date.
