Gone is the first track, its about how cowards get gone from a scene. Favorite Rap Stars features Styles P, who sounds terrific over the production, Raekwon comes thru with a verse too. Life we chose features Lloyd Banks and is about how life can be a gruesume place. The next track Colder Days featuring Masspike Miles expands on this. Get Busy is about making sure not to be a slacker and get to work and get your money. Eyes open features Twista on the track, this is about doing what you can to stay awake, including taking drugs. Tell Me To My Face features Royce da 5'9" who gives a classic verse. This World has another feature from Masspike Miles on the chorus, the subject matter is about hustlin to get what you gotta get. Already Tomorrow is a lighter sounding rap track, it talks about not rushing in movement and in thought. Hear Dat has great production and Havoc at his finest, it's about doing what you gotta do to survive. Gettin Mines is about his come-up from rags to riches and always aspiring to be greater. Long Road is the official final track, its the softest track on the album and has sort of a uptempo melody. Can't Sleep is the bonus track of the album it's a song for the streets, making sure his enemies are even paranoid to sleep.
Overall this is a decent album, you can't compare this to a Mobb Deep album, but it does feature great production from Havoc himself, and with his already legendary status, places him near the realm of a Kanye West as far as beatmaker/rappers. I give 13 four out of five stars.
