Self Made Vol 2 .....3.5 Stars
on June 26, 2012
MMG is back with their second album Self Made Vol 2, this time with a new member Omarion (formerly of B2k) . Self Made Vol 1 was a solid album which feauterd the singles "Tupac Back", "Im A Boss", "Play Your Part", "600 Benz" & "Pandemonium" . The album starts off with the 8 min track "Power Circle" feat Kendrick Lamar where everybody holds their own, then on "Black Magic" which is a Meek Mill song with Ross doing his typical repetitive hook that goes "POOF there go the car / POOF there go the crib POOF/ 100 million David Copperfield !" . The standouts on here are "This Thing Of Ours", Fountain Of Youth", "Power Circle", "MIA", & "Bury Me A G". The production is grat on here, I gotta give Ross his credit because he knows how to pick beats. I can see the die hard MMG fans loving this album but the average rap fan is gonna think this is decent at best. Wale is featured more than anybody on here, it would been good to hear more Stalley who only shows up on four songs. Its not terrible but its not classic either, this is summertime music. Alot of these songs are gonna dominate radio and tv like "I Be Puttin On" and "Actin Up" so you cant be mad at MMG for going the commercial route. Another thing is that the album sounds like it could be mixtape... That's just my opinion though.
