Khujo drops off a new album straight outta the Dirty South. This one I definitely have some ambivalence towards. While on one hand, I definitely respect the Goodie Mob and really like a lot of their classic material, I also think that this project didn’t live up to what it could have been. Khujo would never be mentioned in the conversation of greatest rappers of all time. At the same time, I think he has given us a lot of jewels over the years. He has a way of giving us a raw and unique view at life just as he did on the Soul Food album. We just didn’t get those jewels to the same degree on this new album. The production is a bit weaker as well. I don’t know if it is the lack of beats from Organized Noize or what, but it just didn’t hit like it should have. There are some decent tracks on here. The highlight is “JoDaz” which features Daz Dillinger. Another good track is “The Struggle” which features 2 of the Outlawz, ED-I-Mean and Young Noble. This one definitely has Khujo sounding more like the old Khujo that we love. It’s just a bit of a mixed bag with this one. I don’t think you will love it and I don’t think you will hate it. It just is what it is.
OVERALL RATING: 2.5 out of 5 Cheesesteaks
