Jim Jones and Maino squash any kinds of previous beef and join forces to give us the Lobby Boyz album. This was an interesting album to say the least. As far as the bars go, you pretty much get what you expect from both MCs. You will get street raps as opposed to mind-bending punchlines. Now with the production on here, you definitely get an interesting mix. If you take every popular East Coast sample from the past 20-25 years or so and put them together, you get all the beats for this album. I don’t think that they had very many, if any, original beats on here. Now, one might say that that is a lazy approach musically, while others may praise the way they sound over those classic tracks. I find myself on the fence about it. If nothing else, it does sound great hearing two veteran MCs go back and forth over classic tracks. Jim definitely takes the crown with the lyrical side. All in all, not a bad effort from them Lobby Boyz.
OVERALL RATING: 3.5 out of 5 Cheesesteaks
