While Juelz Santana remains in prison, he and his camp reignite his status as one of hip-hop’s greatest shining stars and strongly skilled lyricists. The Diplomat veteran sort of fell off the scene for quite awhile. After some failed attempts at some subpar mixtapes and groups like the Skull Gang, I thought it was over for him. This new mixtape is a testament to his strength and to his dedication to represent not only himself, but also the Dipset camp. His bars are definitely reinvigorated on here. His rhyme schemes and flows are back to the way they were which made him great. He sounds like the old Juelz. There are songs where in does try to utilize the new style flow like “EZ Work” and it just fails miserably. At least the whole album wasn’t littered with that though. Keep that to a minimum. The production throughout is very good as he mixes new beats and classic beats to rhyme over. It definitely sounds like a true mixtape. The 2 songs that stand out the most are the beautifully crafted “23 & 1” in which he talks about his jail situation and the Harlem heavy “Pink Eagle” that features Dave East and Jim Jones. This song sounds straight out of the Diplomat catalog and sounds like everyone belongs on it. This is a really great sound for Juelz and I hope he continues to ride this wave moving forward. Everyone loves a great comeback.
