Master wordsmith Fred The Godson teams up with funny man Jay Pharoah to deliver a very quick mixtape that spoofs Training Day. Fred definitely delivers the bars throughout. Would you expect anything less from him? His punchlines and witty flow is always on display and this offering is no different. The entire album alternates skits and songs the whole way through in which the skits showcase comedian Jay Pharoah doing his best Denzel Washington impression. While they sound slightly funny, I’m not sure that they were really necessary especially having 6 skits in total. Oh well, it could be worse, right? The beats on here are slightly above average. There are definitely some bangers on here and some good reworks of classic beats like “Can I Live 2020.” This was a quick and pretty well received listen so true bar heads will definitely appreciate this one.
OVERALL RATING: 3.5 out of 5 Cheesesteaks
