This was a surprise project dropped by the veteran MC OC at the perfect time. The project was pretty dope all around. Lyrically, OC has not missed a step at all. He brings the same clever and smart lyrics that he always has. If there was an Ivy League of rappers, he would definitely be the leader of the group. The beats are pretty decent as a whole. I don’t think there are any certified street bangers on here or any anthems but it’s definitely some fresh beats on here for OC to rip. There is an overall air of positivity and self-worth in OC’s rhymes which I think is good for the culture. He takes care of himself and his crew which I think often gets overlooked in hip-hop. The standout track is probably the last joint titled “Real Life” in which he talks about his final interactions with the late, great Big L. This is a very poignant track. All in all, this is a good album for the culture.
OVERALL RATING: 3.5 out of 5 Cheesesteaks
