The Philly legend is back with a new project. At only 8 songs, there isn’t tons of room to prove how great he is, but somehow he shows off the skill properly. Spade-O has a great flow and puts together his bars pretty well. You definitely get the aura of Philly legend with him as he has been around since the old days and went up against the greats. At one point, him and Major Figgas had the city on their backs. They continued to be revered by those that know proper. The beats on here are a bit above average as well. I think he made a good selection of some beats that have an almost royal feel to them as he almost is inducted into the Hall Of Fame, so to speak, on this album. He definitely creates a nice cohesive project that shows off Philly talent so fans should definitely check this one out.
OVERALL RATING: 3.5 out of 5 Cheesesteaks

Coming back straight outta Philly is some of the Major Figgas cats back with a new album. This one is pretty dope overall. For one, it is different than a lot of the other garbage out there today. This one stands out on it’s own. In one of their skits, the MCs Ab Liva and Spade O even say that they were just trying to make dope music. That is what they definitely did with this record. Spade O has always done his thing on the mic but Ab Liva is just on another level lyrically. It’s amazing to hear him spit. Even since the days back with the Re-Up gang, Ab Liva has been spitting mafia/drug/high fashion rhymes unlike no other. They do a great job together with all the rhymes on this project. The beats are decent overall. Some of the beats I think transcend others, but they are all at least decent. The highlight is “Silence Of The Lambs.” This song is pure greatness. It is Philly at it’s best with a sped up soul sample reminiscent of the Diplomats sound. Honorable mention goes to the song “Red Leather” with its clever sung hook. They did a good job with this one. I hope this is the start of a new Philly renaissance because I think these cats are onto something.
