Onyx hits us with a pretty dope new project. This is a collection of previously unreleased songs for all the mad face fans to revel in. The first half of this project probably plays a little bit better than the second half. It seems to lose a little steam as it goes on. As far as the rhymes, the members of Onyx still sound dope and hardcore even as they get older. You would think they would sound stale or tired, but that is simply not the case. Fredro still flows good as ever and Sticky Fingaz still hits us with his crazy, but dope lines. The beats on here are decent. You can definitely tell that some of these tracks were the throwaway ones, but there is still some level of quality to them. The only tracks I really wasn’t feeling were the ones where they tend to dip a toe into the rock scene. Songs like “Born 2 Rock” with its guitar rifts just don’t cut it. Despite a few setbacks, Onyx shows that they will be around for a long time to come.
OVERALL RATING: 3 out of 5 Cheesesteaks
