You could definitely tell with this release that these songs were left on the editing room floor on purpose. Mr. Cheeks and The Lost Boyz definitely made some classic records and I’m sure they made a lot of songs that didn’t make the cut. This seems like a quick collection of Mr. Cheeks songs that didn’t make the cut at all and you can hear why. While not altogether horrible, the beats do sound a little dated and not up to the caliber of the time. The rhymes are pretty basic all around, but then again, most of Mr. Cheeks stuff usually is. There is nothing really introspective here such as “Renee.” Because it is so short at only 6 tracks, you could probably give it a quick listen and quickly realize why you only stick to the Lost Boyz’ first 2 albums.
OVERALL RATING: 1.5 out of 5 Cheesesteaks
