    5-0 out of 5 stars Take this album for what it is
    Hardcore rap grew in popularity because it brought a new kind of fire to the table. It didn't start with anything too profound or deep, it was just a way to express aggression. People keep forgetting that a song or album can still be good even if it doesn't bring in a whole new idea or way of thinking. The beats on this cd are insane and listening to Lil Jon's crunked up roar gives me the sudden urge to trek down to my local police station to dish out a few flying ninja kicks to everybody in uniform. You might get turned off by this cd because it doesn't give you much to think about. No, this album doesn't make you think, it makes you feel. After hearing only the two first songs off this cd I was so pumped I went into my closet and doused all of my clothes in gasoline. Then I lit them on fire and ran down the street busting the Deion Sanders touchdown run throwing flaming garments at people. Okay not really, but I did think about doing it. So before you put your hater cap on remember to take this album for what it is. A ballad for busting down doors and an anthem for kicking ass.

    fighting to save music for the sake of art

    lil jon is a sellout and raps about the same thing, but we, the real music crusaders, think that he is more than just a sellout. he is the grandfather of the next musical revolution. the next revolution is going to be a dance/rock/rap combination and lil jon is heading in that direction. he may not be the person who leads the revolution (like kurt cobain) but when the revolution hits, lil jon will be known as being "ahead of his time." PLEASE LIL JON SAVE MUSIC!! get low is good and most of the album is good. be sure to get it and join our team!!

    and dont forget [...]- fighting to save music for the sake of art..be sure to check it out

    4-0 out of 5 stars Nice Lil Jon album better then Get Crunk
    Better then his new CD. This is the third CD from Lil Jon's repetoire and is the one that gave him a mainstream crowd that he first midly picked up from his previous album. Put yo hood up. There are a number of standups. Dont expect great lyrical wizzardry on this CD but if you want some real Get Krunk music you came to the right place. Has a nice mix of underground roudy songs and some club bangers that you can either fight to are dance to. A number of standouts a nice CD at the end ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    He’s been shot nine times. Incarcerated. And stabbed up and down. And that’s only what’s happened on 50 Cent’s down time. Hands down, 50 Cent is the biggest buzz emcee since Eminem (who just happens to be his label CEO), and Get Rich also features Dr. Dre on production, so it’s a can’t-miss record, right? Well, mostly. Get Rich is not filled with midtempo, radio-friendly numbers like "Wanksta," his thinly veiled Ja Rule dis first heard on the 8 Mile soundtrack. Instead, Cent brings the heat, not heater. He sheds his inner thug on "21 Questions," featuring G-funk crooner Nate Dogg showing some semblance of respect to the hotties, and then reverts right back to his thug persona on "In da Club," where he boasts "I’m into having sex, I ain’t into making love." There’s no "How to Rob, Pt. 2" here, although "Many Men" comes close, as he addresses some of the haters who may not fully get why he’s now rap’s big cheese. Surprisingly, the two Eminem-produced joints--"Patiently Waiting" (which thematically is very much like Em’s "Lose Yourself"), and "Don’t Push Me"--almost rival the beats supplied by Dre. Then again, it seems his most well-known cuts ("High All the Time" and "Wanksta," for example) are actually some of the weakest of the lot. Sure, Get Rich could never have lived up to the hype, it’s nowhere near Biggie's Ready to Die or Nas's Illmatic, but there's no fast-forward material here, a near miracle in these times. --Dalton Higgins ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Love It!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    This album is cool. I love 50 cent and he will always be my favorite rapper. I love all the songs. I love this cd and The Massacre. And i like Beg For Mercy. Peace Out

    4-0 out of 5 stars Undeniable appeal, but still
    50 Cent's "Get Rich or Die Trying" is, over all, a great album.His"gangsta" attitude and confident swagger make give him undeniable appeal.It's a good listen with great production, opening with his now famous and much parodied g-unit calls, following immediately with "Patiently Waiting," a track that lets loose some emotion.That's my only problem with 50 Cents, he raps in the same tone for almost the whole album, never with any agility.That's just a matter of preference, it's a good record and perfect for breaking him into the mainstream.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Too lazy too fill out the thing so i clicked kid's review
    50 has a unique style... he's not really that lyrically impressive, but he just comes so hard on his stuff that you're impressed anyway. Let me just say that this CD is better than the massacre, but that doesn't mean that the massacre isn't good. The massacre has it's good Cuts, like: In my hood, Gatman and Robbin, and God gave me style. No matter what 50 couldn't top this CD anyways. This CD was in instant classic. Every song has good beats, and 50 knows how to work with em. Best songs are the dre beat ones of course: In da club, Blood hound, and if i can't. If you want a CD too bump in your car then this is definitely it. I suggest getting this before the massacre... the massacre seems to be geared more towards the ladies.. songs like: Build you up, Just a lil bit, Candy shop, amazing lead me to believe it. Anyways they're both Good Cd's and definitely pick up The G UNIT Cd and maybe banks and bucks CD's too. ... Read more

    1-0 out of 5 stars Mobb sleep
    Every one knows that mobb sleep is fake and so is their whole image and i have to say that theynever had any good albums because their were pretty much lame... Mobb deep's "infamy" is the idea these losers fake wanna be thugs had to make more money since their othe ways wasn't gettin them no true fame but leaving them to be bums and stay in the street asking for pennys. Dont buy garbage like this insted support real hip-hop like common, the roots,wutang, 2pac (always kept it real), tribe called quest, all thoseppl. Mobb sleep are bunch of b*tches.

    4-0 out of 5 stars q.b holdin it down
    Mobb deep it series there album infamous i think was the best but this one is right next to it, all the songs are dope, prodigy is an ill producer some of the best songs off this album are 1)bounce 2)hancuffs and 3)get at me, go pick this album up...

    3-0 out of 5 stars Very weird compared to there other albums
    This was Mobb Deeps 5th album released in 2002. They have had 3 scense them. It is there most comercial album ever. "Pray for me" has an excellent beat but Lil Mo should not be on a Mobb album. "Get Away" is smooth and has a excellent beat to it and is also soulful."Bounce" kind of feels like a party type track and you can tell. "Clap" has a completely underground style beat as do the previous 2 or 3 and is one of the best beats on a Mobb album. "Kill that N****" has a bad beat but it is of
    good quality. "My gats spitting" sounds like a good song a little experimental to other beats. "Handcuffs" has another underground style beat. This music is definantly different."Hey Love" is always dissed but 112 does okay on it this one is a little experimental not typical beats. "Burn" does have a typical beat and I just do not like it that much. "Live Foul" has a dumb chorus but has a Nas Stllmatic era beat to it. "Hurt N*****" does have a experimental beat but sounds different. "Get at me" also has a weird beat in a good way sounds a little like ESPN Football beat. "I Wont fall" also sounds like maybe an alchemist beat. "Crawlin" he raps a little mainstream the beat is not. "Nothing like home" has a soulful type beat to it. "There I go again" has another good type beat that sounds increddible. "So Long" has a nice beat. This is Mobb Deeps most unsettling, most experimental, most mainstream all at the same time. When it works it is excellent when it does not it does so very badly. I don't know it's hard.

    Editorial Review

    One would think that Jadakiss's fleeing Puff Daddy'srecord label to renew his membership in the reputable Ruff Ryder camp(alongside talents DMX and Eve) wouldguarantee greater things to come. However, Kiss tha Game Goodbyeexposes Jada's lyrical limitations rather than magnifying his talents.The album kicks off with the keyboard-heavy Swizz Beatz-produced"Jada's Got a Gun." The hook is sung to the tune of Aerosmith's"Janie's Got a Gun," but it's not so much the unoriginal chorus thatgrates on the nerves as it is Jadakiss's narrow gun-centric lyricalfocus as he brags: "I got a gun wit' 200 shots / I'm the reason youmoved your family to a whole new other block." Students of the rap gamewill get a healthy sampling of Jada's unparalleled diction and punchlines that flow over great beats supplied by A-list producers (Timbaland,Neptunes, and DJ Premier in this case). There's little diversity in hislyrics as he boasts in "I'm a Gangsta" "my bullets is bisexual cuz theyhit niggas and bitches," while in the Snoop Dogg-aided"Cruisin'" where he threatens to spread "bullets around like chickenpox." "We Gonna Make It" is an obvious chartbuster despite utilizingthe same music as Ras Kass did in the"Home Sweet Home" underground headbanger. Likewise, the album is worthpurchasing to peep the Beanie Sigel distrack "Un-Hunh!" However, some will tire of Jada's gun-talk andserial-philandering routine. Jadakiss has claimed to be the best rapper on thescene since the Notorious B.I.G.passed away, but if he keeps this routine up it might be time to Kisstha Fame goodbye. --Dalton Higgins ...

    Jadakiss was--and still is--regarded by some as the best member of the LOX.So naturally, heads were clamoring for his solo album, thinking he might knock out a classic out the gate.Unfortunately, KISS THA GAME GOODBYE is not that album.Right after the intro, the first song announces that--yes, you guessed it--"Jada's Got A Gun," although his claim in "I'm A Gangsta" that his guns are "bisexual because they hit both n****z and b*****z" is clever and funny.But that is the thing:Is Jada talented?Heck yeah!He's got an arsenal of witty punchlines and quips that he lets loose in sporadic fashion throughout the album.And whenever he teams up with partner Styles P, the results are pure hardcore magic (e.g. "Show Discipline" and "We Gonna Make It").There are a couple of good songs and beats here, too (e.g. "Knock Yourself Out," "We Gonna Make It").But for the most part he seems to be solely concerned with 1.) linear subject matter, only talking about sex, guns and hustling; and 2.) covering all the regional bases by crafting insincere songs for the West Coast ("Cruisin'" with Snoop Dogg and "Kiss Is Spittin'" with Nate Dogg) and the Dirty South ("What You Ride For?" with Eightball).Jadakiss compromises and goes for the conventional in KISS THA GAME GOODBYE; as a result the record hardly goes anywhere exciting.He hasn't KISS[ED] THA GAME GOODBYE yet, but with more albums like this, he might be forced to do so anyway.

    5-0 out of 5 stars CLASSIC solo debut
    I don't know why people be hatin' on this album cause it's hot.Just because it doesn't have the touch of all gangsta type songs like his mixtape songs doesn't mean that it's not good.Overall it has 17 songs, of these only 1 I skip, 3 are classics, 2 are near classics, 3 are ok and the rest are all good or great songs.Guests are on a lot of the songs so there isn't as much Jada as I'd have liked to see but he does a good job with the album.Being the first member of the group to go solo and off Puffy's gay-@$$ shoulder he did a good job.Production is pretty good and handled by a lot of people.Swizz Beatz did 4 songs, Mahogany & ALChemist each did 2, and Timbaland, Neptunes, DJ Premier, P Killer Tracks, DJ Shok, Wayne-O, Rated R, Just Blaze, and Fiend all did one song.A must have rap album, for fans of real hip-hop.

    Editorial Review

    Known for his chart-topping single "I Wanna Be a Baller," rapper Lil' Troy can't convince the world that he's foremost a rapper and not just a drug dealer. Sittin' Fat Down South is 14 tracks about the drug life and the struggle to survive it. Guest appearances by southern rappers Scarface and Willie D make the album bearable, as does "Small Time," the album's excellently produced high point featuring a beautiful soprano voice sample, horn, and hard-hitting drums. Sittin' Fat fails, not because of its single-minded subject matter, but because it lacks musical ideas. The album is mostly keyboards with little variation in played or sampled riffs, so almost every song sounds the same. But if you're looking for something with a lot of bass to bump in your system, then Lil' Troy will satisfy your cravings. --Kenji Jasper ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Not bad that sums it why his second was so bad
    Much better then his second major label debut. This one has him doing very southern sounding hip hop music. This is really top of the line Southern fried Crunk that has that Juvenile-Outkast and UGK feel to it. He had a big hit off this album "The Way we ball" but the album is different from that track. With better production this could have gotten a better score. I gave his follow up a 1.5 Mic rating with never even hearing this.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Classic major label Debut
    When I first heard Flip I didn't like him to much but a friend of mine got this album and I loved it and had to buy it.It is probably one of the 5 best albums from 2002.It has a good amount of songs as well, 16, and no skits.Guests are on a lot of the songs but Flip shines more then I expected him to.The production is great as well and done by many people.Ke'noe & Young Sears do 3 songs each, Big Tyme, Tommy Granville Jr. each do 2 songs, and Mr. Mixx, Slugger, David Banner, Joe Trax, Chop Shop and someone else all do 1 song.It has 2 classics, 1 near classics, 2 songs I skip, 2 are ok, and the rest are very good or great songs.A must have rap album, not just for fans of southern rap and his personal best album to date.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Undaground Legend
    This album "went platinum with one video" for a reason. This is one of my favorite southern albums of all time. This album is much better than 'U Gotta Feel Me', so if you bought that and were disapointed, I would reccomend this if you're still slightly interested in Lil' Flip.

    1.What I Been Through featuring Young Redd, Lil Ron & Big T-produced by Lil Flip & Tommy Granville Jr.-5/5-Great song, one of the best tracks on the CD production and lyric wise
    2.U See It featuring Chamillion-produced by Lil Flip & Young Sears-5/5-More hot southern production and some nice wordplay
    3.8 Rulez featuring Shasta-produced by Lil Flip & Kenoe-5/5-The chorus is like B.I.G.'s 'Ten Crack Commandments', and while the song isn't as good as big's its still pretty damn hot
    4.I Shoulda Listened featuring Seville-produced by Lil Flip & Big Tyme-5/5-Slower song, but still great
    5.7-1-3-produced by Lil Flip & Mr. Mixx-5/5-My favorite track on the CD, great lyrically and the production is straight fire
    6.The Way We Ball-produced by Lil Flip, Kojack & Young Sears-5/5-The only single on the album, you've probably heard it
    7.Get Crunk featuring Lil Ron, Young Redd & David Banner-3/5-The oxymoron in the chorus just makes this song hard to listen to ("if that ho wont let you f*** she a ho"), but its still pretty good
    8.Haters Still Mad featuring Lil Ron & Big T-produced by Lil Flip & Kenoe-4.5/5-Hot flow on this one
    9.We Ain't Scared featuring Bizzy Bone-produced by Lil Flip & Kenoe-5/5-Bizzy is probably my least favorite BTNH member, but he's great on the chorus, hot song
    10.Make Mama Proud-produced by Lil Flip & Tommy Granville Jr.-5/5-A lot like 'I Shoulda Listened', but a little better
    11.I Can Do Dat (Remix) featuring Juvenile & Skip-produced by Lil Flip & Big Tyme-5/5-By 2nd favorite song on the album, great production, and Juve, Flip & Skip's flows are great
    12.Tonight featuring Seville-produced by Lil Flip & Slugger-4/5-Another very good slower song
    13.What Y'all Wanna Do featuring David Banner & C-Note-produced by Lil Flip & David Banner-4/5-Better than the other David Banner guest apperance, but not as good as Banner & Flip's 'Like A Pimp'
    14.It's A Fact-produced by Lil Flip & Young Sears-4.5/5-Some of the best production on the album, and Flip is good lyrically
    15.R.I.P. Screw featuring Bizzy Bone-produced by Lil Flip & Joe Trax-5/5-Better than the other Bizzy apperance, and one of the best tracks on the CD
    16.Forget The Fame-produced by Lil Flip & Chop Shop Productions-4/5-Very good song to end the album

    Highly reccomended for any Texas/Southern rap fans ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars "THREE SIX IS GOIN DOWN..."
    Three 6 Mafia has always been my favorite rap group; I own every Prophet Posse/HCP album with the exception of Gangsta Blac's "Can it Be?" Gangsta Boo's "Enquiring Minds," and Koopsta Knicca's solo--I even have a large quantity of old cuts that were never released. Therefore, coming from someone who had "Mystic Stylez" across their windshield, I feel confident in saying that 3-6 peaked with Crazyndalazdayz. Correct me if I'm wrong, but HCP has become increasingly more commercial with their sound in the 2000's (disregard Project Pat's "Mista Don't Play"). Recently, as of April 05, they even did a collabo with 112--what the f$@#!?? Come on, they can't be on top forever..."Da Unbreakables" is only an average album at best, that lacks variety--undoubtedly due to the absence of Gangsta Boo & Koopsta Knicca. Also, the beats are starting to all sound the same, strikingly similar to the decline of No Limit in the late 90's. On a lighter note, evidently DJ Paul is rumored to have been shot in the arm in the not too distant past, giving him the appearance of the guy in "Scary Movie 2"...I guess we'll have to wait for Choices II to drop to verify this.

    5-0 out of 5 stars three six got it goin on
    first let me say three 6 is awesome. this was the first three 6 cd i bought and it prompted me to get alot of their other stuff, all great. but this is the best one right up there with when da smoke clears.my fav track is #14 'beatem to da floor'.get this if you dig on triple 6 music

Paul and Juicy J are growing as time progressing, steadily reaching for a broader audience.For screwed & chopped lovers "Rainbow Colors featuring Lil' Flip" is for you.I think a missing element for Da Unbreakables is some live instruments.Listen to "Mosh Pit" and think of how hard it would have been if Saliva would have played on that track also.Da Unbreakables is just another chapter for World Domination.The End... ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars David Banner - Mississippi: The Album

    Banner put out a half decent album with this effort.It has some good tracks but majority of them aren't as great.His beats are what mainly brings the album down.Better luck next time!

    Like A Pimp is a very catchy song, but this album is still not anywhere near good. It's full of garbage throw away tracks and is NOT RECOMMENDED.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Kickin Ass!
    You dumb cracks who diss this CD clearly have no taste in music. This CD was simply awesome, it gets your blood pumpin-love it! You can say all the bull you want about the Crusher, but as he said he aint neva scared.

    2-0 out of 5 stars 2-1/2 stars -- Talkin' loud but ain't saying nuttin'
    I looked at one of my favorite hip-hop websites and it listed the 5 most overrated songs of 2003, and at the top of the list was "Never Scared". Then I looked at a few people's guides and they listed Bone Crusher as being the most overrated RAPPER of 2003. I think both of those are pretty accurate.

    Why? Well, you'd understand if you listened to the album. I wouldn't necessarily call Bone Crusher's rhymes garbage, but they're not all that great either. And the album's introduction, which is the SECOND track (I still can't figure that one out), has Jermaine Dupri hyping Bone up, saying that he's representing the South, that he and his clique are "never scared", blah, blah, blah. Like Bone Crusher is the first rapper out of Atlanta or something?

    It's hard to tell this is a debut album anyway because, as so often is the case, there are way too many guest stars on here (even in the interludes), and most of the time it's people that no one has ever heard of. Songs like "Gettin' It (Get Dat Money)" and "It's Me" are nothing special, and rapper Chyna Whyte doesn't make things better in the aforementioned song with lines like: "Ima ride till I can't ride/Drink till I can't drink/Flow till I can't flow/Blow till I can't blow." I have no idea what's going on in "The Wall", and "Ghetto Song" and "Peaches & Cream" sound like last-minute songs.

    When Bone has known guest stars, things get better...well, somewhat. "Never Scared" is okay, and it's nice that it features the underrated Killer Mike, but I wasn't that impressed with T.I. (not that I ever AM). And the Goodie-Mob assisted "Hate Ourselves" is a little iffy; furthermore, the "new" Goodie Mob (sans Cee-lo) singing the chorus just doesn't work as well.

    Most of these songs are hard to enjoy anyway because of Bone's overstated rhyme style: the SCREAMING. If he had some better rhymes, that might be all right. And the few times he's NOT screaming, he sounds like a clone of Ja Rule or Caddillac Tah, I'm not sure which. And another thing, whoever produced this album needs to step their game up, because a lot of these songs have similar beats.

    I think Bone Crusher got signed to So So Def only because JD wanted somebody on the label who's older than HE is. But anyway, this album really isn't that impressive. It's probably still okay to bump in your ride, but I'll wait till his next album to hear some really dope stuff.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Milquetoast Millicent
    Before adopting the silly stage name "Bone Crusher," the young Millicent Purejoy delighted fans in his hometown of Sioux City, Iowa, with his sultry chanteuserie and charming pasquinaderie every Wednesday night at the Pink Dandelion Playhouse on 64th St. That was ten years ago, when vamping and voguing was all the rage. Now the frilly chiffon smocks have been put away and the eyeliner and lip gloss have been wiped off and a much older, angrier, scarier Mr. Purejoy has emerged to take the world of rap by storm. The transformation is nothing short of astonishing. Who would ever believe that this aggressive, posturing "thug" currently basking in the gangsta limelight was once the saucy young dandy who set all of Sioux City's "bachelor" hearts a-flutter? Would all those older gentlemen who clawed and scratched their way to his dressing room still wish to vie for his favors? My guess is Yes, they would, these distinguished pillars of the community being no strangers to the thrill of rough-trade menace. But young Millicent--sorry, I mean "Bone Crusher"--has moved on to greener, more remunerative pastures in the burgeoning "rap" genre. We at the Pink Dandelion wish him well and hope that he remembers us fondly, even as we understand that he can never acknowledge his former friends or admit to his previous profession. Sigh. ...

    Editorial Review

    Thoroughly blunted multiracial West Coast pioneers Cypress Hill transformed hip-hop with their eponymous debut album. Now Stoned Raiders, their sixth, looks back on past achievements and clocks up a string of new ones. The metal-powered "Trouble" takes off where their "Rock Superstar" single left off and fixes a mood of embattled reflection aligned to tough determination. "Lowrider" uses an acoustic flamenco guitar to underline the droopy-lidded, easy-rolling side of the band and "Kronologik" tells the story of the group's career and struggles with the help of guest Kurupt. Additional special appearances by Redman, Method Man, and Kokane prove an excellent foil for B Real's patented cartoon style. Throughout they are kept on course by DJ Muggs, still one of the most distinctive studio overlords. His skills are particularly evident counterpointing the anguished lyrics of "Bitter" with multilayered siren voices and waves of dream rock guitar on the luminous percussion of "Memories" and the eerie but impassioned, weed-endorsing "L.I.F.E." They may be fighting their own personal star wars, but the stoned raiders are still winning the battle. --Gavin Martin ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars hip hop done right
    For whatever reason, this seems to be the Cypress album that everyone is negative about.Not really sure why, b/c everybody loved skull and bones, which had the rock and rap thing going on as well.With stoned raiders, you get a good deal of both styles; the new metal stuff (trouble) as well as the hardcore rap (southland killers).B Real and Sen sound as tight as ever and of course Muggs is always on point.People seem to hate b/c Cypress is trying out some newer styles.Truth is, these guys couldn't make a bad record if they wanted to...

    4-0 out of 5 stars Stoned Raiders
    This is good but the thing is the rock tracks let em down. They should realize that they aint no good at metal and should go back to rap cause stupid azz rock fans like em now and make em look like a rock group or somethin, anywayz the standout tracks are "Red Meth & B" and "Lowrider"and "Kronolgik" the others are ok except dont like "Trouble" "Bitter" and "Amplified" so buy the first 4 for better.

    And thats all I have to say about that.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Different sound, same Cypress Hill
    This cd everybody is ragging on.Everyone wants TOB or Black Sunday, so then just go listen to that cd.They are expirementing with new styles and integrating sounds which for the most part is done very well.Of course it's not like their old stuff, because that would just be lame redoing old beats and lyrics.All and all, this really is a good cd for any CYPRESS HILL fan, not just a TOB fan. ...

    Editorial Review

    On the follow-up to I GotThat Work,Cash MoneyMillionaires refugees Brian "Baby" Williams and Mannie Fresh put theirmediocre rhyme talents to work, paying tribute to all the boyz in the hood whocan still rock "gator boots with the pimped out Gucci suits" despite being poor("Still Fly"). Huh? Cash Money's in-house producer, Fresh cooks up his usualsupply of 808 drum-kick-heavy beats on "Hello" and "Oh Yeah" that sound asthough they couldn't have taken more than a few minutes to hook up. But he's nosucker emcee or producer, and when he's at his best he's able to seamlessly fusesnappy techno beats with Parliament-style funk ("Get High"), which effectivelysounds like somethingOutkast couldhave guested on. Sadly, the underwhelming rhymes on tracks like "Pimpin' Baby"(which finds the duo dully listing off their many high-cost accessories)nullifies Fresh's highly danceable rhythm constructions. When popular SouthernDJ Greg Street's interludepromoting a Viagra-sponsored "I Can Still Get It Up Tour" contest is the album'shigh point, it's time to go back to the lab. --Dalton Higgins ...

    2-0 out of 5 stars some songs are good but this isnt real rap (2.5 stars)
    some songs are pretty good like "Still Fly" "Oh Yeah" and "Da Man" but really this isnt real rap. All they talk about is money and cars. real rap talks about things like their life and guns and the hood. this doesnt talk about that stuff. I mean, its okay to have two or three songs talking about how good u are but NOT the whole album. It's real ANNOYING.
    another thing is Mannie Fresh is MUCH better and entertaining than Baby. why does baby get so much credit and fresh gets like none.
    but back 2 subject. i will definatly not get another Cash Money albums.

    if u want some real rap check out some Shady/Aftermath/G-Unit albums (Eminem, Dr.Dre, 50 Cent, etc.). Also check out Wu Tang Clan and some old Ludacris.

    Big tymers are the best cash money has to ofter.Baby and Mannie Flesh are big time hit making. Hits are Get Your Roll On, #1 Stunna, and Pimp On. I give their album a 5 out of 5. pixel

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best album by them
    I still think that the Big Tymers had their best album in I Got That Work. I even heard the tape while driving on a road trip through Pennsylvania in 2000. This album stands out because of the music and the diversity of the songs.Both the funky Get Your Roll On and #1 Stunna are superb songs and make for good driving music down the streets in your car. The track sandwiched in between ...Don't Know, has that rock guitar thing going on it, kind of Mannie Fresh going Lenny Kravitz on us for a minute, but it blends well to the bass heavy songs. The other cuts I like are My Life, the countdown like approach on 10 Ways, the powerhouse numbers of Pimp On, Stuntastic, Rocky and others.They brag more about their rims and cars, before overdoing it about money, jewelry and materialism on the next two albums. Baby brags about his cars and platinum jewelry (on every song!) while Mannie is [...] about how many girls he's hitched with in their lyrics. What comes off as offensive is when they disrespect some women on a few numbers in their lyrics.It's a low point on their album and comes off as disrespectful. But they match well to the bass lines, images and landscapes of the songs. This is their best album artistically.

    Editorial Review

    At a time when digitized beats and crudely consumerist attitudes rule the airwaves, the distinctively organic aesthetic of Kentucky-bred hip-hop sextet Nappy Roots' debut release is refreshing. Rotating MCs flip profound rhymes about growing up in the South and their struggles to be heard, giving a semiautobiographical feel to songs like "Peanuts." "Aw Naw," the first single and arguably the album's catchiest tune, surrounds a dope slice of country life with unique rhythms that fuse banjos and harmonicas with contemporary, bass-filled beats. In a similar vein, "Life's a Risk" boasts some slick introspective lyrics from group member Skinny DeVille, who rhymes about staying away from the pitfalls of street life. In the end, Nappy Roots come out sounding like a harder-edged upgrade of Arrested Development's Southern-tinged roots rap. Let's just hope they don't suffer a similar fall off the face of the earth. --Dalton Higgins ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    When the late Tupac popularized the "thug" concept to describe his boisterous lifestyle, he couldn't have seen Trick coming. All of Miami-based Trick Daddy's albums (Thugs Are Us, Book of Thugs, www.thug.com) abuse this concept, and no one knows exactly why. On his fifth studio album, Trick flips more 'hood-centric, autobiographical rhymes on "Money & Drugs" and "Ain't No Santa," skillfully charting his rise from rags to, er, bitches. Sonically, this is Trick's most diverse album to date. While there are no clear-cut anthems like "I'm a Thug," "In da Wind" comes the closest, with progressive Atlanta rhyme-spitters Cee-Lo and Outkast's Big Boi guesting. Heck, even legendary soul singer Betty Wright's Children's Choir drops by to add some gospel flavor to "God's Been Good." While a large bulk of the collaborations add very little to the mix (Infa Red of Unda Presha and Tre+6's contributions are quite underwhelming), "Gangsta," featuring a rejuvenated Scarface, will win over those unfamiliar with Trick's hardcore street-poetry appeal. --Dalton Higgins ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars Nice...
    I've always been a supporter of Trick Daddy even though I don't buy alot of his records.I think besides Outkast he's the most unique in the South right now.On the title track, TD talks politics and as you can see in the video, he talks about 2Pac and Biggie's beef when he says("oh no there's more, yeah two world wars").I didn't know he was talking bout the East/West beef when I first heard it but after I saw the video I realized he was.Another favorite of mine is "Rain It Pours", a good hood song.The party tracks are a good listen to."In Da Wind", "I'm A Thug", and "Play No Games" are all tight songs, but one of my favorites is "Ain't No Santa".The reason I gave this album a four is cuz there is a little filler on this.But if you skip past those songs, you get a good hood album and one of Trick's best. ...

    Editorial Review

    Fabolous would have us believe he’s serving up Street Dreams, but the Brooklyn rapper’s sophomore effort is more likely to rock the party than shake the boulevards. The F.A.B.O.’s smooth, deadpan flow cruises over benignly commercial beats (courtesy of Clue, Just Blaze, and Kanye West, among others), and the overall effect isn’t hard enough to stand up to "official" street-issue hip-hop (think 50 Cent Is the Future or any M.O.P. release). Sure, Fabolous is not without charm. His straightforward delivery of the never-too-deep subject matter enhances slinky, slangy club joints like the Track Masters-produced "Damn" and the R&B-inflected ballads "Can’t Let You Go" and "Trade It All Part 2." The album also features solid guest appearances by Missy Elliott (the electro-funky "Sickalicious"), Mary J. Blige (a retooling of her classic "What’s the 411" entitled "My Life"), and pop princess Ashanti ("Into You"), but the entire proceedings are stolen by the aforementioned M.O.P., whose verses on "Keepin’ It Gangsta" illustrate what street is really all about. --Rebecca Levine ...

    2-0 out of 5 stars Street Dreams-fabolous
    well i can just about say cant let you go saves this album im afraid and its a damn good song. up and lots of downs. 1st fabolous monotone i mean i got over that ages ago! when gangstarr relised the owners! so thats a down point and those piss weak lyrics are dreadful. and that piss weak rip off of a doctor dre song with snoop makin a fool of him self basicly saying that he was at is peak ages ago! also into is a ok song not the best but o.k boutta 7/10 all the other songs are rubbish! i dont no its just that he hasnt got the whole package! and real talk is crap to!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Ill Album. It's my favorite.
    Street Dreams is my all time favorite album. Fabolous has ill lyrics, a dope flow, dope wordplay and a good delivery.

    I will rate all of the tracks on this album now from 1 to 10. 1 being the lowest, 5 being satisfactory and 10 being the highest.

    1. Intro -
    2. Not Give a **** - 9/10
    3. D*** - 5/10
    4. Call Me - 9/10
    5. Can't Let You Go - 9/10
    6. Bad ***** - 9/10
    7. Why Wouldn't I - 5/10
    8. Up on Things - 5/10
    9. Sickalicious - 5/10
    10. This is My Party - 9/10
    11. Into You - 10/10
    12. Change You or Change Me - 8/10
    13. Respect - 6/10
    14. Forgive Me Father - 5/10
    15. Never Duplicated - 5/10
    16. Wake Up -
    17. My Life - 8/10
    18. Throw Back - 7/10
    19. Keepin' It Gangsta Remix - 9/10
    20. Trade it All Pt. 2 - 10/10

    Not Give a **** is one of my favorite songs on the album. He lays down some very good rhymes.With lyrics like "These dudes dont stand a chance/When I pull up like the Pamper Brand/On Those Lambo Slants/....", I really thought the second verse was his best on this song.

    Call Me is another good song. Who is featured on this song? Is it Ashanti? Whoever it is, she has a great voice. Fabolous spits lyrics like "Cause she's been lookin' for the kid like Bush was searchin for Bin Laden...". It's songs like this that make Fabolous my favorite rapper.

    Can't Let You Go is my second favorite song. He has some dope lyrics backed up by a tremendous instrumental. I especially like the ending of this song. The video for this song was good too. I listen to this song all the time, my older brother also likes this song.

    This is my Party is my favorite club banger. Once again, he lays down really good rhymes in the first verse, and the third verse. In my opinion, the second verse isn't so good.

    Into You is my absolute favorite song ever. I love the video. I love the instrumental. Fabolous has dope lyrics on this song. Tamia is a really vocalist. Lines like "...with the blue so hard you think I was crippin'" really made this song good. The video is good. I hope that in the future, there will be more love songs like this and Can't Let You Go.

    Overall, I think that this album is worth buying. I bought "Street Dreams" in 2005, which was a few years after it was released. I really regret buying the album now, because I love it, and I wanted to see the videos (Can't Let You Go, This is My Party, etc.) when they were on MTV and BET. Fortunately, I got to seethe videos this year on www.blastro.com. I hope Fabolous releasesanother album that is like this in the future. I give this album a 9/10. "Street Dreams" is one of the best albums I ever heard.

    Keep up the good work Fabolous.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Pretty Hot Record
    I have to admit, thus far, I haven't copped Fabolous' debut album "Ghetto Fabolous". I never saw a reason to. From what I heard of the album, Fab's rhymes were wack, his beats were unlistenable, his flow was never good and there was way too much hype. I really couldn't see what the big deal was. So when "Street Dreams" dropped I was obviously skeptical - I borrowed the record off a friend before dropping any money on it. And I have to admit, Fab's definetley upped his game. I did get the album and I wasn't dissopointed with my purchase. Fab's content will never be that deep, but that's alright for the kind of rapper he is. Throughout "Street Dreams" I didn't really mind hearing about his sex life, clothes, chains and other assetts. Overall, Fab's upped his game, and with a bit more work, he could become the kind of rapper he boasts himself to be.

    Musically, it's above average and a good listen, but nothing to make a big fuss over. What you've got with this album is a handful of bad tracks and a handful of good tracks. Whilst the bad tracks are wack beyond belief, Fab's really bringing his A game to the table on cuts like "Damn", "Call Me", "Bad Bhhhh", "Up On Things", "Into You", "Change You Or Change Me", "Throw Back" and "Keepin' It Gangsta". "Change You Or Change Me" is the standout track by far - Fab's actually some real life stuff about the changes that come with being famous. This is how I like Fab, but it's a shame the boy can't make a whole album on this label.

    Faboulous' "Street Dreams" is definetley a hot album and is something I still listen to a year after buying it (never thought that would happen with a Fabolous album) so it's worth checking out. 3.5 stars. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    Fabolous has been compared often to self-exiled MC Mase, but though his flow is reminiscent of the ex-Bad Boy's laid-back delivery, all similarities end there. Ghetto Fabolous might be an album that appeals to younger hip-hop heads, but more-discerning fans will find that the freshman artist makes several mistakes that blunt his debut's impact. The missteps include uninspired subject matter (illegal business dealings, ghetto flossing, and fighting off persistent groupies); gratuitous use of the words "thug," "gangsta," and "playa"; and an entire song centered around a Notorious B.I.G. riff ("Get Right" is a mediocre "Players Anthem" knockoff). On the plus side, the album's chock-full of guest appearances designed to please those aforementioned youngsters; Ja Rule's strident vocals on "Ride for This" almost drown out his host's more meticulous delivery. The album's one true bright spot is the dance-floor-friendly "Now and Later." With this one song, Fabolous lives up to the hype. --Rebecca Levine ... Read more

    TOTAL:70/80= 4 Stars

    4-0 out of 5 stars Its A Better Debut Than Was Originally Thought
    Fabolous was a mixtape champion before his debut album, keeping the streets excited with slick lyrics and impressive punchlines.His debut won him many fans but the critics didn't really warm to it.Nevertheless, Fab now is a superstar and though his lyrics don't hit like they used to, he's still deserving of his fame based on his talent.His debut is actually better than it was percieved in the past, proven by one quick look over the hit singles it spawned; "Holla Back", "Can't Deny It", "Keeping It Gangsta", "Trade It All", "Ride For This".That's nearly half the album.Most artists don't get that close these days, or back then.If you like hot beats and witty lyrics, Fab's debut is a definite winner.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good Debut
    Fabolous, who was all but around 21 when he recorded this, made a good debut.With huge street buzz from blowing up Clue's mixtapes, he delivers a good album.Not quite as hard as I though he was gonna be, but it is a good album.Has 9 different producers on the album (5 songs by Duro & Clue).Limits his guests on this one as well so he gets his chance to shine more.His second best album to date (behind "Real Talk").Has 2 classics and a few good tracks but 2 or 3 skippable tracks as well.A must have for fans.

    #1 - 6.5
    #2 - 10 (classic)
    #3 - 5 (bad song)
    #4 - 8
    #5 - 9 (f/ Ja Rule on the hook - great beat)
    #6 - 8.5
    #7 - 7.5 (f/ Jagged Edge on the hook)
    #8 - 7
    #9 - 8 (f/ Lil Mo on the hook)
    #10 - 7
    #11 - 9.5 (great song f/ Nate Dogg on the hook)
    #12 - 5 (Another bad song)
    #13 - 6.5
    #14 - 8
    #16 - 10 (classic off of DJ Clue's "Backstage Mixtape")
    #17 - 7 (off of DJ Clue's "The Professional")

    Editorial Review

    When an unproven MC is branded a "Notorious B.I.G. sound-alike," career doom is imminent. Arguably the two MCs do share similar vocal drones. And yeah, they're both unapologetic slum-centered lyricists. However, Shyne's insipid tales of selling dope, packing heat, and sleeping with seedy "ho's" are artless, unlike Biggie's. Shyne does up the ante, but it's in all of the wrong ways (not only does he sleep with multiple "ho's" in his verses but he tells 'em to "Get Out" when he's done). The most revealing track on the album is the spoken-word interlude "Dear America," where Shyne eloquently explains how America made him "a lost cause." "Niggas Gonna Die," "Whatcha Gonna Do," and "The Life" are all ridiculously dark, violent, and thuggish. However, Shyne's slow, moody drawl flows well over the reggae-tinged riddims of "Bang" and "Bad Boyz," featuring reggae balladeer du jour Barrington Levy. Sadly, Puff Daddy's unshakeable influence at Bad Boy (e.g., the tried-and-true rhythm sampled on the D.O.C.'s "Funky Enough" is borrowed on "That's Gangsta") further corrupts this album. And why a rapper with a shady past (present and future?) would use his debut album to broadcast his illegal exploits to the world is anyone's guess. In the end, a fast-forward button should never receive this much love. --Dalton Higgins ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Bad Boy's Finest
    Yeah, Shyne WAS bad boy's finest until him & puffy got wrapped up in all that (...), Whatever, Bad Boy has turned into a maintream (...) R&B label that couldnt make a band if they had 100 Justin Timberlakes. My middle finger's been up at bad boy ever since Biggie turned his back when 2Pac got shot in back in '94. ANYWAYZ, This is one of the realest albums I have in my collection. Shyne Po puts a lot of rappers to shame with this debut album. Standouts in this album are: "The Life","Thats Gangsta", and "Niggaz gonna Die". "The Life" is my favorite track on this album because Shyne goes into broad detail of his hustlin days. This is a classic album; one of the best debut albums I've ever heard. Bad boy records was not built for a rapper like Shyne, he was too much for them to handle. If you dont have this album, get it ASAP.

    5-0 out of 5 stars CLA$$IC ALBUM
    This is one of the best albums ever put out by a rap artist. Shyne himself is a prodigy in the rap game, hence the name "The Godfather". He is outspoken due to other people's ignorance, but overall he is one of the best rappers to ever step foot on earth. This album(his first) seemed like much heart and thought was put into it, deserving 5 stars by yours truly. I believe Shyne's album was a beautiful insight on his past, present, and future. The best song to me is "The Life" because it illustrates his life in tha hood. Another would be "That's Gangsta" because his slick words fall great over the beat and the video is real. He profound.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Classic
    For anyone who truely knows and loves rap music, they know that this record is a classic. A record u can actually listen from start to finish all the way through. I havn't heard a solid, well produced, lyrical masterpiece like this one since B.I.G. ready to die. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    While the Cash Money Records label continues to suffer through the free-agent exodus of its hottest emcee, Juvenile, Lil Wayne has been slotted in as the crew's go-to griot. However, on 500 Degreez Wayne's inability to rap about subjects other than Bentleys, babes, blunts, and booze severely limits his career possibilities. On the profanity-laced "F*** You" and "Gangsta S***," his mediocre and indistinct rhymes and flows are barely saved by Mannie Fresh's electro-funk beat schemes. That's not to say that Fresh isn't coasting either, performing his normal interpolation-heavy productions (e.g., "Way of Life" is a spin-off on Junior Mafia's "Get Money"). Why Lil Weezy would spend three-quarters of his studio time boasting about how much moola he makes ("Get That Dough") and how great he thinks he is ("Look at Me") is anybody's guess. The one time Weezy does go introspective on "Young'n Blues" it's already too late, because he's already branded himself a hip-hop jester. --Dalton Higgins ... Read more
