Funkmaster Flex has had the reputation of laying down some banging beats for hip hop's top stars to freestyle over. But on Vol. 3 there's not enough good beats or good songs to make this album satifying. There are lots of missteps on here, Mariah Carey over Mobb Deep's Shook Ones Pt. 2 beat, Missy Elliot's freestyle over Wu-Tang's Triumph completely ruins the beat, DMX's freestyle ruins the Give up the Goods beat by Mobb Deep. Ice Cube doesn't even drop a verse on the Mack 10 freestyle, he just talks in the beginning of the freestyle. Funkmaster Flex gathered all of these big hip hop stars and didn't milk them for his worth, he also cuts [bad] hip hop and r&b songs together in between. Get Vol. 2 or Vol. 1, they have much better beats and more satifying performances by various rappers.
