I got Jada's debut album,
but that's just an uneven album,
Some songs is nice but many song is not memorable!
This album improve a lot!
Jada Got a Hot voice, Tight lyrics,
he's not doubt one of the better rapper from NY now.
Those Beats have improve a lot this time,
and all songs have good quality.
No any unmemorable or weak stuff!
What you so mad at? - Hot beats! play it loud!!!! 4.5/5
Shine - Feat. Snoop D O double G and DJ Quik, The beats is incredible! I love it, I guess it's produce by Quik[this guy production kick serious ass!]
but it'snot! anyway, it;s one of the best song in this album,
I guess you can easily heard this song from any party! 5/5
Bring you Down - Jada spit fire, Gangsta Rap baby! 4/5
Time's up - Feat. Nate Dogg and it's just another amazing song! The Beat is very nice! 5/5
Why - Kiss ask many questions that we always wonder the answer is, why Bush knock down World Trade, Why kill Big and Pac, Kobe, Aaliyah, why many rapper lie on this rhymes...etc nuff said, just an incredible song! 4.5/5
U make me wanna - Feat. Mariah Carey, a commercial move, anyway, the song is alright, you don't need to press skip. 4/5
Hot sauce to go - Produce by The Neptunes and feat. Pharrell,
ok, first, it's a nice song, but kinda so-so for The Neptunes,
Neptunes produce many sh*t better than this one before! Not bangin' Party Hit, it's some stuff that close to Snoop Dogg's Beautiful, but this one is more relax and clam! 4/5
Real Hip Hop - The Beat is Hot and feat. Sheek! 4.5/5
Shoot outs - Hell No! I ain't into this stuff, BANGIN' beats, heavy bass, gun shot sample, some noisy sample...... STRAIGHT Eminem-ish, I don't believe this song isn't produce by Em'.....
I hate this kinda of beats, Dark, Atmospheric[borin'] 2.5/5
Still feel me - An okay song. 3/5
By your side - The song start with a catchy female chorus, I guess it's a commercial stuff, but the song suddenly turn into..... mm..... Hard to tell, but kinda remind me something Hi-Tek did in Reflection Eternal! 4.5/5
Gettin' it in - feat. and produce by Kanye West, Kanye did a nice job in here,
but I still prefer his work in his own album! 4/5
Air it out - Maybe the most unmemorable in here!
Welcome to D-Block - feat. The Lox and Eminem, I'm not too into it, somehow it's sounds quite Eminem too, but this one should be better than shoot outs! 3.5/5
Kiss of Death - Don't like the beats! 3/5
I'm Going Back - An okay song to close this album 3/5
Featuring some superstar like Snoop, nate Dogg, Mariah Carey, Pharrell, Kanye West and Eminem.
Jada show his ambition in this album a lot,
He got a heart to climb a higher level!
Anyway, I keep listen this album over and over again!
It's really Nice release, not 5 stars classic but shoould not less than 4!!!
Not a Classic but it's a must have for this year!
Easily hold a place in 2004 Top 10 rap albums I guess!
