As records from the DTP crew go, Success & Failure isn't the strongest showing. Overall, the songs are just below par with Chingy's other material, though standout tracks like "The Haters" and "Thurr Dey Go" help salvage an otherwise lackluster record. It's not bad to put on in the background when one doesn't want to draw attention to the music, but not nearly the level of Hoodstar.
Truth be told, Chingy isn't that bad of a rapper to me. He has plenty of jams that I listened to back in the day and that I still listen to. However the fall off is inevitable and happens to everyone it's just that some take a lot longer to fall off. Chingy has gotten to the point of being flat out unlistenable. I could not believe my ears when he said "1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8" in a rhyme. All I could think was WTF??? His beats are pretty decent, less commercial more street but the songs themselves fall flat. I only liked Thurr Dey Go and the rest straight to the recycle bin. He had a song out earlier this year with 8Ball called Iced Out that was pretty much bumping. That song is not on the album which leads me to believe this may be an unofficial release. Nonetheless, stay far away from this one and save your money. You won't be missing anything. Thank the lord for download right? 1 star.
