"This is talent! Mystikal has a very original and creative rapping style that is humorous and fun to listen to. He varies his tempo, his volume, and his flow while rapping, making this a very entertaining listen. Mystikal is also a very fast rapper and a great lyricist. In one song, he raps about his morning routine where he uses the bathroom, takes a shower, etc. and continues on. The songs are also pretty long, the average at about 4-5 minutes, and there are no interludes or intros. or anything like that on this album. Every track is actually a song.The beats and the music are your typical rap-type music, but it's done well and isn't 100% repetitive like most rap music you'll hear nowadays. The music will vary a little bit so it isn't boring, and the production and quality of this album is actually pretty good, despite what some reviewers elsewhere have said.Mystikal has a very impressive debut. Be careful, though. Sometimes it's hard to understand him when he raps really fast, but he's still very impressive."

"Mystikal set up shop with his unorthodox style and flow on this groundbreaking debut. In 1995 Mystikals style was unlike any other in the rap game. His cadence, use of swift tongue twisting flow, voice variations etc etc etc. made him an instant superstar. His first hit, Here I Go, was THE hardest song when it dropped. I don't care what you say, That song is probably one of THE Hardest songs, if not the Hardest song, to ever come out of the south. This is a real battle track dedicated to who ever wanted to test.
With lines like: "You wanna battle bring a body bag, I'm gonna need it to carry yo STUPID A$$",
`Ill [mess] you up with the quickness!",
`you can bring yo whole posse punk I still wont lose, Ill stomp your whole staff, must want a bloodbath!",
"you wanna fight [punk] put em up, how that sound? Come get knocked down!"
This is just a non-stop lyrical assault delivered with unparalleled aggressiveness and poise. Definitely a classic track.Just because that song is so great doesn't mean the rest of the album is weak. Mystikal drops some unforgettable quotables and choruses on this album. His technique is that straight fire. Delivering confident lines like "I know yall [people] can't [mess] with me because I can't [mess] with my damn self!" and "The only way to keep my Mfing name out your Mfing mouth is to keep yo Mfing mouth shut!", Mystikal couldn't possibly be stopped.Every single song on here is the joint but my favorites include Yall Aint Ready Yet, Mr. Hood Critic, Not That Nicca remix, I'm, Here I Go, and Beware. The beats are off the chain and perfectly compliment Mystikals style. Overall you should make every effort to hear this album. It is definitely a classic album that is nearly untouchable. This is a diamond in the rough. EXTREMELY recommended."

"Im from Westbank New Orleans (Harvey) so this album was pretty big around there. This is by far Mystikal's best album. His flow is fast, slow, loud, and soft...he keeps it fresh, changing up his flow throughout the song. The beats are so shyve, much better than P's stuff when he went to No Limit. From the dark beats of Murderer and Mind of Mystikal to the flava of Yall aint ready yet and Here I go, Mystikal never ceases to impress me. This album was made when he was on the top of his game, and his album shows it. 10/10."
