2 Dope solo. Jumpin' out in front, and all 'cross the mixing board with this one. It's fluid flows and even beats, then staccato screamin' or hard headbangin'. He's an O.G. gangbanger, spittin' street stories, keepin' it all kinds of real. He's the old-school angry Shaggs, a smooth smartass, and the wry, ruthless, rapper the fans have grown to love. He's funny, f**ked-up, and fresh, and puttin' it down the way you love, a way you ain't ever heard it before. Believe that. Musically he's hittin' from all directions, with straight-up classic samplin', Klub cuts, and all-original beats, with a lick of guitars in the mix. It'll have your hands in the air, quick like a stick-up, and they'll bounce, they'll wave, even throw up some devil horns. It's cruel, it's ruthless, and it's smooth like Zen Buddha. Shaggy's all over this one, with his homies in tow, featuring guest shots by the Psychopathic family. He's one-half of the Insane Clown Posse, droppin' his first solo album in 10 years, but that don't quite cover it...

"The vast majority of ICP fans, myself included, consider Violent J to be the more talented one of the group, but Shagg's solo album is suprisingly really good. Mike E. Clark returns and lays down some phat beats, as always, and Violent J and Twiztid both make great guest appearances through out the album. Almost every song is good, and in my opinion, it was worth the wait. This doesn't have the feel of an ICP album, but it's not suppossed to be because it's a Shaggy 2 Dope album, and if you don't like that, then you can F.T.F.O!"
THIS IS WHY I'M IN LOVE WITH SHAGS!!

"My guy is so f***king awesome here, he blows me away. I have been a devout ICP fan for some time and have always wished Shaggy was more in the limelight than Violent J - who's presence overshadows just about anyone he works with (don't get me wrong, I love J, too). Shaggy's first solo album was good, this one is 10 x's better. My favorite? "Pull Me Over" - he executes the lyrics effortlessly and sounds sooo sexy on that track.
All I have to say is - too bad he's married, he'd be in trouble if he wasn't!"

"Wuddup Juggalos. If you're reading this and ain't picked up the album, DO IT NOW!! Forget reading this review. Just run to the nearest CD shop and pick it up. Then return and check the review out. Shaggz really stepped his game up and came out of J's shadow. I've been a fan of 2 Dope since I first found the Carnival, but it's real pimp to see him doing his own thang. The album is executed perfectly though. Violent J, while not providing any verses, often sings on the hooks and has lil voiceovers in songs like "Pull Me Over". TWIZTID shows up as the only real guest appearance on "Always F*ckin With Us". The song "Owl Face Hoe" is kind of somber because it is the last time we'll probably hear ABK on a Hatchet track, since he has since moved on. The songs are all catchy for the most part and "Your Life" closes the album with an upbeat feeling that only the Juggalos can understand and feel. I'm still waitin to pick up Madrox's "Phatso" joint and as all the Juggalos should know, ICP's new full length (maybe 2 disk album) "The Tempest" will be dropping September 19th. Peace Out."
