"When dipping into the used CD bin at one of the local businesses I casually haunt, I happened across this Black Market Records release and thought that it might be worth picking up. Many a good release has come out of there after all, and many a tasty talent has been introduced to me from Cedric Singleton. What made up my mind on it was when I noticed something else I search for a lot, however, and that was the fact that Brotha Lynch Hung makes an appearance on the album. So, enjoying the Lynch, it quickly jumped into my hands.While I wasn't surprised that Triple Beam is actually a pretty good group and I also wasn't surprised at the type of music I was getting, I was surprised at the variety of themes involving murder, gangs, and drug dealing that took off as I listened. From 28 Grams (featuring the beloved Mr. Doctor) and the clarity of its message to Split Yo Face (f/ Brotha Lynch) and I Know Where You Sleep, a pattern developed that perhaps isn't anything close to unique but that is one I actually find myself liking. I enjoy murder-related material, and I enjoy the gangsta life being related to me with pinpoint precision. I enjoy guns, threats, and I also enjoy the fact that representing oftentimes explodes into a hail of bullets. So, this settled well when I listened. Praise related for the high points, I did have a problem with some of the songs on the album - and I went in with expectations only for the two Brotha Lynch Hung tracks. I personally don't like Keak Sneak (of 3X Crazy), and he contributed his lack of flow to two tracks on the album. He doesn't stay with the beat, fighting the flow, and that's never good. I also tire of songs totally devoted to "pimpin" and I really could care less if someone is going to "rush the club." When you have songs relating messages like "I'm peeling caps on people who think they're bodies are made out of Teflon," songs about thuggin it in the club seem to lose their meaning.Criticism aside, this is a pretty solid release and has some really good tracks on it. Besides those people mentioned, there's also an appearance by Spice 1 on Ride and Its Going Down f/ Duece Duece of DRS. For people that find themselves looking around for pieces of work by Brotha Lynch, Split Yo Face is worth getting your hands on and, to a lesser degree, his appearance on Don't Push Me is decent. If you like what Black Market is known for, toned down a little bit perhaps but still a little violent, then this might be something to check into."
A very solid freshman album.
