The Deal: Legendary Texas MC takes a stab at the "modern" mixtape game.
The Good: No denying this mixtape had soul but it also had an grit that man artists shy away from. "Lyrical Assualt" with Malice & Mr. Lo Key, "The Ghetto Report" and "2 The Beat" are all tracks that stand out for their honesty and just damn good production.
"Get Lost" seemed radio ready but I really could've rode out to an instrumental version of this mixtape and been cool, it's some crazy beats on this project.
The Bad: Way too much B. James and Monk Kaza. While serviceable their constant presence made you wonder why they weren't bigger, doper, Texas artists on some tracks instead.
The Verdict: It's hard not to enjoy a Scarface project but this one seemed to be more of a vehicle to push affiliated artists than get me excited for a forthcoming Scarface album.
