Undoubtedly AZ's finest release to date! Starts off with mellow Heatmakers produced tracks - and true to their perfected formula comes complete with vocal samples - laced with some fine rhymes from the Brooklyn vet. "New York", though featuring two of the Wu's finest, is not your typical Wu-Tang 36 Chambers shit. Unfortunately, it's too lyrikal to make a proper anthem, but makes a good track still! "Street Life" has some nice violins on it, and features two credible emcees, Half-A-Mil & Begetz. "The Come Up" is actually a reworked version of an earlier track called "No Love" which features Joe (Thomas). The newer version is more street; what else would one expect with Primo on production! Other notable tracks include "Bedtime Story", "Envious" featuring Bounty Killah, "AWOL" (where AZ drops a single verse that declares him one of the world's best slept on artists!). Overally, a well-balanced album that doesn't compromise true HipHop for commercial success.
