I really like the vintage feel of this album. It starts off with Air em Out, a Bronx sounding anthem. Then its goes into Cement 3's which has an O.D.B. sample on the chorus and features New York/L.A.'s Roc Marciano. Rock beast comes soon after and I feel is the most commercial track on the album. Ghostface Killah comes in for Savagely attack but the looped sample track is nothing extraordinary. Action Bronson makes an appearance on "It's Raw". Bronson instantly lifts up the mood with his colorful wordplay and funny punchlines. Let it Off comes with a perfect beat from DJ Premier, the collaboration does the track justice with gritty street lyrics. Poisonous Thoughts features Mr. Muthafuckin Esquire but is a filler track. Shoguns is a nice track with a cameo from Cappadonna and brings back the signature eery feel of the album courtesy production from 7L. Then it ends with Hazmat Rap another old school sounding track.
I give this album 4 out of 5 because it's a great album with nothing really to complain about, but it is very 90's and can't compare to anything mainstream right now, that's not a bad thing though.
