When did Ced Gee fall off?

There was a recent thread about Kool Keith on our boards which raised the question when exactly did Ced Gee fall off? Some think he never fell off, while others think he never was on to begin with. Clearly there is a difference in his style from Critical Beatdown to The Four Horsemen. Many people never got used to the new style and some thought it was a self-conscious move to enhance the “space” rapper reputation that has forever stuck with Ultramagnetic. So while I’m a huge Ultra fan and can appreciate many of the absurd, abstract and just downright ridiculous verses from Ced, I ask the readers of T.R.O.Y. to let us know what you think.

When did Ced Gee fall off, or did he?

    Upon first listening to Critical Beatdown I actually preferred Ced to Keith. Keith was too nasal, Ced had that deep register that heads could take seriously back in 88. Ced matched Keith rhyme for rhyme, style for style on that record. It would have been better for him (and Ultra) if he had just stayed himself rather than try to “keep up” with Keith. That said, I never thought he was bad after Beatdown.
