I was nervous that the years this album spent in development hell implied it would be a stinker, but happily, I couldn't have been more wrong. It's still too soon to say whether it lives up to the original, but so far, it's hard to be disappointed with what we're hearing. Rae and Ghost are like two sides of the same coin while other guest appearances add polish without stealing the limelight from the author. Cop it now, because this is hip hop at its best--there's no excuse for complaining that the golden age of rap is over when giants still stand in our midst!
The bottom line is this album is dope from start to finish, it made me love Hip-Hop all over again & is a definite five stars, I would give it more if I could! For those who disagree maybe you should give it another try, there is absolutely nothing sell-out about this one, it does not in any way feel lazy & Raekwon really brings the ruckus with his lyrics. It is nice to see big names in Hip-Hop support The Chef, like Slick Rick, Busta Rhymes, Styles, Jada, Sigel. People who keep it real. The ODB tribute Ason Jones is really heartfelt & we can feel how important he still is to the clan. I also love the originality & freshness of this cd, the beats are great, you would think after all these years it would sound old but that is not the case. Like I said before it isn't an instant classic but it isn't far from it & I am sure it will grow on you quickly just as it did the same thing for me. If you haven't bought it yet then what are you waiting for? Support Hip-Hop & go get it RIGHT NOW, you don't know what you're missing.
Well this is definitely a good pick up. rae goes real hard, he shines. GO OUT AND SUPPORT HIP HOP
