1.0 out of 5 stars This Album Will Make You Want To Knock YOURSELF Out April 5, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Sports superstars seem to want more than to win a series or a title. They often want to have award-winning rap albums as well. Shaquille O'Neal had several subpar albums, Deion Sanders had the tacky "Must Be The Money" as well as making a few appearances on Hammer's The Funky Headhunter, and Kobe Bryant's K.O.B.E. was so bad that it was never even released.
The latest athlete to make this mistake is champion boxer Roy Jones, Jr. He appeared on MTV's FANatic back in 2000 and explained that rap really gets him going. Well, this album will get EVERYONE going...to another room. There are so many problems here, I don't even know where to start. But I'll first point out that the song titles themselves are dumb. Many of them are catchphrases nobody says any more ("You Don't Wanna Go There", "Get It, Get It", "You Damn Right"). Then there are titles like "We All We Got" that just don't make any sense. Roy also spends a great deal of time bragging about how many belts he's won.
Another problem here is the production. "Get It, Get It" is one half Casio keyboard music and the other half scratching from what sounds like Neneh Cherry's "Buffalo Stance". And the music to "Do You Know How It Feels" sounds like his producers brought two turntables and a vibraphone. There's also "Invincible", which sounds like somebody went outside and recorded a thunderstorm.
The biggest problem overall is Roy's rapping. He is not a rapper. Repeat: HE IS NOT A RAPPER. That's especially obvious on, well, every track. He goes too far on "And Still", which actually sounds decent at the beginning, but then he bites DMX by saying things like WHAT? and COME ON! the same way X used to do it. He also says "Where my dogs at" in the second verse.

4.0 out of 5 stars About Rjj March 20, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I am highly impressed with Rjj as a rapper! He has sound lyrics, and he also has a story to tell. Some crytics say "Stick with Boxing", I say "Keep doing whatcha' doing!" Now granted, he's no Jay-Z or DMX, but then again Jay-Z and DMX aren't pound for pound boxers! Mad Luv Roy!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good, depending on what you're expecting March 1, 2005
Format:Audio CD
If you don't try to take it too seriously, this is an album worth listening to. This is not to say it can't be taken seriously. The musical quality of the beats is generally what you'd expect from a big label rap album, the wordplay is awesome (rhyming "Seoul, Korea" with "whole career" - how does he come up with this stuff?), and Roy has the rapping talent to back it up, something that is very important in my opinion. But I will admit it is not some fabulous work of art that will be remembered as the pinnacle of commercialized hip hop. There is however, that entertainment aspect to this album that can't be explained by its quality. If you like watching bad 80s B action movies, you know exactly what I'm talking about. What separates this album from the cinematic work of Dolph Lungren, or hitting closer to home, Macho Man Randy Savage's rap album, is that I can listen to this for it's musical value or to get a few laughs. Sure, there are some tracks I always skip, but overall it is an enjoyable listening experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better Than You Think It Is March 3, 2002
By Kaleel
Format:Audio CD
The album is worth getting. Don't write it off just because he's an athlete. It's much better than anything Deon Sanders or Shaq can think of. He even flows better than a few of the artists out now.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another thing RJJ can do very well June 24, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I knew Roy Jones Jr. could do anything in the boxing ring, and it sounds like he can do a lot on the mic as well. Filled with hooks, this album is NOT your usual ahtlete-turned-rapper vanity project. RJJ can rap, period. And he can switch it up too, with a good flow, fast or slow.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Pac but better then others March 23, 2007
Format:Audio CD
This CD is not the best thing that I have ever heard but considering that Roy Jones is a boxer by trade I cant complain. This is a album that i am not ashamed to say that i own.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Nice April 29, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Most customers are into beats not lyrics (which seriously needs to change, it's a few artist out here that are getting looked over like NAS - in my opinion he's one of the best). So I try to pay attention to the lyrics not so much the beat. I am very pleased with the album. #16.A Real Father - is a song that women will like and get sentimental on, also numbers 2,5,6,7,10,12,14,18 are songs women will like. Now my all time favorite is #3. And Still, I can just ride to that all day and night. #4. Is a favorite also, all three versus are energetic. Everyone has there own opinion about the CD, but this is a CD that has to grow on you. I have gotten alot of feedback on it and the people I associate myself with seems to think that it is very nice and also stated that they had to listen to it a few times, but now it's a hit CD. What I think is everyone was expecting garbage because other athletes has produce trash in the past, so we didn't give him a chance because he's an athlete (that's not right), he's cool. My opinion he sounds alot better than these WATERED DOWN rappers that WE have supported and still support. He has alot of messages that needs to be heard, and NO it's not all about boxing, although most listeners would think that but their not paying attention. It's about he's life; it just so happens to deal with boxing let's remember that, that was most of his life people. So why don't everyone at least listen to it themselves and not go off of what someone writes. Alot of people may think I'm writing nonsense, but I think their writing nonsense, but that's just my opinion again! My favorite tracks are 2,3,4,6,10,12,16. Just try it out, it's not bad I recommend it highly!
