If you are the sort of person who likes a bit of rough rap but also some more pop-like rap then this is for you. There are a few phat tracks to bump in your car like "2 Minutes & 21 Seconds of Funk" and "Hit 'Em" where the heavy bass-line will please hard-core rap fans. "My Soul" and "C U When You Get There" are also very good if you like a bit of a melody to your rap and somewhat meaningful lyrics in the latter make it a more serious addition to the album. There are several funky tunes that while not that great, make good "padding" to fill out the album - "One Mo", "Throwdown 2000", "Nature of the business". The "Devil is Dope" is also pretty good. A few of the tracks like "Ooh La La" and "Homeboy" let the album down slightly, hence it is not 5 stars.
Overall, some hard-core beats, a few good melodies when you are in a chilled-out mood and some funky tunes make a great album let down only by a few flops.
