Don't get me wrong. This is one tight album. The production, handled for the most part by Foxxx himself, is nice, and the tracks he doesn't bless are constructed by the underground's finest, from the Alchemist to Pete Rock to the legendary DJ Premier. But the lyrics, while they are some of the most venomous on wax to date, are pretty much all alike.
"Industry Shakedown" is just that: Freddie Foxxx issuing an open challenge to anyone (and he means ANYONE) to step to him and tell him he and his twin caliber Walther PPK's aren't the best. And I give him credit... I sure wouldn't be the first to call him wack. But I will say that he needs some new material.
It's actually a shame that there's not enough lyrical variety to go with the plethora of enjoyable beats found here. "Tell 'Em I'm Here" moves with an ominous string loop, "Bumpy Bring It Home" is executed nicely by Diamond D with Billy Danz of M.O.P. on the hook, and the title track, courtesy of Soul Brother #1 Pete Rock, is one of the smoothest and best beats I've heard this year.
Like I said, Freddie Foxxx is one of the best MCs out there. He just needs something new to talk about. You can only rip so many MCs before there's none left to rip.
But let me say this, I found this album elsewhere and it's not bad. I wish Freddie would vary his style a little bit but there are some nicely produced tracks.
