MO THUGS
THE MOVEMENT

For volume 4 Krayzie Bone had returned to the group but as a performer only, as he did not serve along side Layzie Bone as an executive producer. Any way I haven't listened to this in a while so here it is.

1.INTRO

2.THE MOVEMENT-the first song out the gate is preformed by the MO THUG FAMILY and is produced by DIRTY RED. This song is for the most part good, all artists on the song hold it down, and the beat is banging, but it feels a little sub par for the first track out on a comeback album. Over all a good effort by all involved.

3.TOLD CHALL-the next track is about the same as the previous song, a good song but not as good as it could be. To be fair the beat from MAULY T is really good, and the bell in it makes it sound great. THE E-MORTAL THUGS, SKANT, and LAYZIE BONE all hold it down lyrically, and the hook is catchy. So I would say it is a little better then the first track.

4.IT AIN'T NUTTIN'-Mauly T returns to drop another catchy beat and MEGGABYTE adds a nice talk box ala Roger Troutman for the hook and through out the track. Also KEN DAWG does his thing on this track, this could have been a decent single if handled right.

5.DO YOUR THANG-the next track was the first single for the album, and rightfully so as this song is truly a classic. The very gifted FELECIA delivers an excellent performance on this track and is assisted by Layzie Bone and the returning KRAYZIE BONE. All deliver on this track, especially DENZO who provides an excellent instrumental. Definitely worth getting the album for this song, great song.

6.FA' SHO'-Skant and Dirty Red return on this song to deliver a pretty good song, Dirty Red in particular created a good beat for Skant on this song. Skant does his thing on this track, and brings in a very g'ed up song for the album.

7.ALL LIFE LONG-next up was the second single for the album, and once again it is a song featuring Felecia. Felecia once again delivers with her nice vocals, but this time it is only Layzie Bone who joins her on this song. THE PLATINUM BROTHERS brought forth a nice instrumental for the two to get down on. And while this song is real nice, I think it is slightly less as good as "Do Your Thang", singer/producer THIN C does back up on this.

8.LOVE IS-and speaking of Thin C this track is all his, as he is the performer and producer for this track. He does a good job on this track, both vocally and production wise. But while that is good, the song over all is not to impressive.

9.THA LAND-next up is a track preformed and produced by DJ SKAIL, he reminds me of some one but I can't think of whom. The beat for this song is cool, and he holds it down but it is like the previous track, good but not great.

10.MY DAWGS-Mauly T returns to produce this next track and he does a good job, but the beginning reminds me of that song from the murders off of their first album. But any way The E-Mortal Thugs return to deliver some more music for the streets, they deliver for the most part.

11.IT'S FAST-Ken Dawg returns to the album with another good track, his verses are good and the hook is good 2. Dirty Red also returns to produce this track and also rap on this song, he delivers on both accounts. This song is pretty good, I like this song.

12.MAXIMUM MAXIMIZE-the same rap/producer calabo from track ten returns to contribute another decent track to the album. Mauly T drops another good beat and The E-Mortal Thugs hold it down on this track as well, another decent song to bump.

13.SMOKIN' ON INFORMATION-Mauly T drops another good beat, but it's for Tha Doggfather SNOOP DOGG this time. Snoop of course holds it down on this track and really shines on it. Skant also does his thing as does Ken Dawg with their verses, JOE LITTLE holds down the hook. Layzie Bone closes the track with a good verse.

14.CAN YOU DIG IT-I have to admit that I really like this song, Thin C did his thing on this song. His beat is real cool, he really produced a classic on this track. Plus he and Layzie Bone, and Felecia all held it down hard on this track, I think this is another classic in the rap game.

15.DEAD WRONG-this is definitely a southern style influenced track, Skant, MARK TWAYNE, and KHUJO of the Goodie Mob all do a good job on this track. All of them sound at home over the slow instrumental provided by Mark Twayne. This is a pretty good song, and a worthy addition to the album.

16.BE FREE-Layzie & Krayzie Bone reunite to lace this smooth track to create another Bone Thug classic. Layzie starts the track off with 2 brilliant verses followed by a verse just as good by Krayzie Bone. Thin C really laid down a smooth track for these two, the only thing I think should have been changed is that Thin C should have been on the hook not Layzie.

17.WHO YOU GONNA RUN TO-Felecia and Thin C come back together to create other good song together, though not as good as previous attempts. Felecia sounds good as usual and Thin C's beat is cool, but the song just doesn't have that classic feel to it. Over all I would say the song is pretty good, but not classic.

18.THUG FINALE-the album ends just how it should, with a banger. Skant, E-Mortal Thugs, and Layzie & Krayzie Bone all kill this track with some great verses. Plus Thin C really held it down on the production, the violins really make this track sound good. This was really a great way to end the album, better song then I thought it would be.

Over all I would say that this album is a little better then the previous album, the album also has a music video on it when you put it in your computer.
