It’s about time that these cats got back at it as a collective. Talk about being hyped to hear a project. I think they did a good job with coming back out as a group and delivering a solid record. It feels like The LOX have been chasing a classic their whole career and just can’t seem to create one. They often get close both as a collective and as solo artists but just can’t seem to fully deliver. I think their main problem is they try to chase trends. With this new record, they have songs that sound like the old hardcore LOX sound that we love them for. They also try to have these new trap records and new flows and new artists featured that take away from what they are good at. Stop trying to chase trends and sound relevant to today’s sound. Stick to what you are great at. The hottest track on here has to be the DJ Premier produced “Move Forward.” The LOX over Premier? There really isn’t much more that needs to be said other than that. Some other stand out tracks include “The Omen,” “The Family,” and “What Else You Need To Know.” If we trimmed off some of the horrible tracks like “Secure The Bag,” this project would be what it should be, hardcore criminal rap.
OVERALL RATING: 3.5 out of 5 Cheesesteaks
