1)Welcome Back- Even though it's getting a little boring from being overplayed, this is still a great song. I heard this song on a local rap channel and immedietely digged it.
2)Breathe, Stretch, Shake- The club banger on the album. I have a feeling Mase wanted to do at least one banger to get more people to buy the album. This is a great song but why does it say it features P. Diddy. All he does is yell a little bit every once in awhile.
3)Keep It On- The chorus sounds a little off-beat but it still works because of Mase's style. He basically tells women to keep their clothes on and that there's more ways of having fun besides sex.
4)My Harlem Lullaby- I really like this song. The chorus is pretty good. The song basically is Mase thanking everyone who supported him throughout his life.
5)I Owe- The chorus doesn't sound like something Mase would do, but the song's still good. It has a strange feel to it and is basically Mase telling everyone he owes them the truth.
6)Wasting My Time- In this song, Mase tells all the obsessive girls that they're wasting his time because he's married now.
7)Gotta Survive- The deepest song on the album and might just be the best song. Mase discusses his life, his retirement from rap to become a minister, and his return to serve God.Read more ›

Now, Mase was never really the dopest rapper in the world, and on this album, things haven't changed much. To be honest, calling the album average is kind of pushing it. Since this is a Bad Boy record, some of the things on here are formulaic; above all else being obvious samples. The title track, for instance, is based on John Sebastian's theme song of the same name. And then there are times where Mase actually samples his OWN songs, like "The Love You Need", which contains elements of "What You Want".
The bad attempts at interpolating lyrics into tracks don't stop there, either. "My Harlem Lullaby" finds Mase singing the tune to Madonna's "La Isle Bonita", and "Keep It On" is based on Jermaine Stewart's "We Don't Have to Take Our Clothes Off". Speaking of that, for some strange reason the liner notes state that the sample comes from "We Don't Have to Keep Our Clothes On" (read that aloud: does that even make sense?). It looks like producer Tyrice Jones didn't do his research. By the way, Mase's song takes the original song completely out of context, because Jermaine's version was an anti-sex song, while Mase's version is about keeping his music playing.
Another problem on this album is that Mase relies too hard on weak braggadocios to get his point across, like "In my former life I did more Cris than Aguilera" (from "Into What You Say").Read more ›
