CD Reviews

Dope album
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This album is always a good listen. Pop on your headphones and your're good to go. Real tight production with a nice flow to match. Your aren't gonna find something different or anything that stands out-just a overall good solid album from the 1st to the last track. Slept on but classic QB material. A must for any Mobb Deep fan."
Overrated- 11 tracks (3 r skits)

"The album is inconsistent, but Noyd definitely coulda done betta- especially on his first dolo. Now, Mobb Deep obviously put him on so expect that original QB sound. Havoc does most of the beats- their all from that golden era when the Mobb dropped the Infamous album. so here's a track by track;1. it's on - basically an intro. annoying chorus repeated mad times. they wasted a good beat.
1/5: i guess u could freestyle 2 it.2. the precinct - this track has a skit off mobb deep's infamous where someone get's shot, then another skit comes on with Noyd at the precinct. corny.
0/5: y'd they put this on?3. recognize and realize pt. I - hot beat by Havoc. Noyd spits on this track.
4/5: nice beat, good guest verse by Prodigy of Mobb Deep.4. all pro - beat starts off shaky but gets better at like 0:20. Ty Knitty, Twin, and Prodigy appear on this track. ok posse cut, but with an intro, 2 skits, and the 2 joints with guests u begin 2 wonder if Noyd is just P and Hav's man. i mean can he spit, or can he spit?
3/5: good beat.5. infamous mobb - beat is listenable. in all honesty, it sounds like a throwaway from the Mobb's Hell on Earth album. u see Noyd's potential, but there are rare gems on this album. 3/5: filler, ok track.6. interrogation - skit, waste of time. 0/57. usual suspect - good beat. first dolo track on album. hungry rhymes. 5/5: beat sounds like Hell on Earth track.8. episodes of a hustla - sick beat from Hav. Noyd gets focused. when u hear a track like this u wonder y he played himself with the previous bullsh!t. some of the previous tracks sound like demo tape joints, but this joint is phat. P guests. 4/59. recognize and realize pt. II - beat by Hav. Both P and Hav r on this. Noyd is fire on the 2nd verse. 4/510.i don't wanna love again - features sek'hou singing. Hav does the beat. r & b joint sounds out of place on this album.
1/5: at least she can sing.11.usual suspect (stretch armstrong remix) - hot beat. Cormega uses this beat on his Love in Love out joint on The True Meaning. Prodigy guests on this joint. Hav beat. Cormega rocked it better.
3/5: he fumbled.there r hot beats. but ultimately this is a Prodigy ep featuring Noyd with 2 much skits, and I'm sorry 2 say it's not worth buying. dub the hot joints off a friend. wait for the second goaround. he can spit, but the songs sound like freestyles. Hav is inconsistent. If you wanna hear good Mobb-Noyd collabos cop Hell on Earth or the Infamous album(s). Those joints r guaranteed satisfaction- damn near masterpieces. when u hear sh!t like that u wonder how trash like this comes out. i gave it a 2.5 but for all the work P and Hav put I rounded it up to a 3."
Classic QB Album

"Noyd came practically out of nowhere when he released this album. Big Noyd blows away all of his non-believers with his impeccable flow especially on "Recognize & Realize (Part 1)", "Infamous Mobb", "Usual Suspect" & "Episodes Of A Hustla". The beats on the EP were all composed by Havoc as he is closely affiliated with Mobb Deep & The Infamous Mobb."
