Reviewed on 6/25/2010...
hall of justice! almost entirely produced by 9th wonder, excluding like 3 tracks produced by khrysis, this album is hot all the way through. definite for any 9th fan or underground head. L.E.G.A.C.Y. is one of the dopest in the leauge.

Solid But Lacking (3 Stars)

(3 out of 5 stars)

"L.E.G.A.C.Y. is next up to bat for the Justus League and for this reviewer, the results are mixed. Legs definitely has some rhyme skill, but the album doesn't have the diversity it takes to hold ones attention. 9th Wonder and Khrysis handle all of the boardwork for Project Mayhem. The production is good, but not the jaw-dropping stuff you've come to expect from 9th Wonder and the underrated Khrysis. I'd say it ranges from pretty good to average. On tracks like "I'm A Star" feat. Chaundon, Median, and Joe Scudda, the beats are tight, but the lyrics don't do them any justice. And someone needs to tell Joe Scudda to put the mic down and slowly back away from it. Dude has zero rhyme skills.

But there are some strong cuts to be found. L.E.G.A.C.Y. shares some vivid lyrics about his life struggles on "Pain In Life" and "Broken Heart Disease". Also, Leggy Hendrix and Phonte team up on "Pure" and they both turn in impressive performances. As shown on "Imperfect World" feat. Kiesha Shontelle and Percy Miracles (Phonte's singing alter ego), L.E.G.A.C.Y. is at his best when giving social commentary or telling stories. This is the L.E.G.A.C.Y. that I pay to hear.

Project Mayhem is a solid release, but too many of the songs sound the same whether it's the beat or Leggy's subject matter. There are some great moments, but the album doesn't shift gears enough and as a result, as the previous reviewer said, it's kind of boring. Project Mayhem lacks the energy to create any kind of buzz.

Standout Tracks: Pain In Life, Pure feat. Phonte (My Favorite), Mayhem, Fast Girls, Too Long, Insomnia, Imperfect World feat. Keisha Shontelle"
Real Hip-Hop

"This is what REAL HIP-HOP is supposed to sound like. The Justus League is doing their thing as far as finding real talent. The production on this album is excellent, lyrics are sharp. Definite pick up for real hip-hop listeners. Standout tracks include, Lou's Tavern, Nice, Cold As A Butcher, Insonmia, the list goes on..... I miss this kind of music, and hopefully this will be a renaissance of sorts. But unfornuately, this album will probably fly right under the radar which is a crying shame. 4 stars......"
