As the first group to be released on the Neptunes' Star Trak imprint, Virginia-based rhyme duo and brothers Malice and Pusha T have at their disposal the most clever producers in music today. And they literally exhaust this fine privilege. There are so many legitimate danceable club hits on their debut that you're pretty much forced to ignore the CD's lyrical shortcomings. The album blasts off with "Grindin'," the street-buzz single of the 2002 summer, with its heavy, old-schoolRun DMC-style drum claps. Similarly, "I'm Not You" flaunts an infectious calypso-pan loop, which makes you pay no heed to the dozens of street-drug verses. The hedonism continues on "Let's Talk About It," with the braggadocio ofJermaine Dupri, and the catchy, hook-driven "Young Boy." Overall, the beats are ridiculously good, but the emcees are quite average. Sorry, no instrumental version available at this time.--Dalton Higgins

First if anything the only negative thing is that it's only 15 tracks and the remixes end the album, because it seems like Clipse had more tracks to put on here. They seem like the type that could fill out an album with at least 19 tracks and still keep it decent …

The beats on this CD are phenomenal. Although the lyrics fall short of the beats, they are still good, much better than half of the rap CDs that are already out their. Pusha T and Malice brag about their riches and tell stories about their violent, drug-dealing past in Virginia and they do so tastefully and cleverly.     This is not one of those CDs were the only good song is the hit song, as is usually the case with most other artists in this fake, commercialized era of hip-hop. …
