Chad Vader's review of Devin's 2008 releases

Smoke Sessions, Vol. 1 Released: April 1, 2008

credits large image;

I bumped the hell out of this when it dropped,all original production on this mix-tape/street album so you might as well just call it a album  :P ;).
Shit is fire from start to end... Searching got be one of my favorite tracks in 2008.
Rating; 4/5


Landing Gear Released: October 7, 2008


A good album but a couple of below average tracks drags down the overall rating.
Rating; 3/5


Hi Life Released: October 7, 2008

credits large image;

Although this album clearly is leftover tracks Rap-A-Lot has thrown together,shit holds high quality all the way through.
No need to break down each track,all is above average.. no skipping.  ;)
Rating; 4/5

I haven't listened to Smoke Sessions yet but I agree with you. I like that "leftover"-album a lil bit more than Landing Gear. Although I would give them 3,5 and 4.  ;)

I consider it a "slow" album  :P the style is pretty similar to Genacide and One GudCide. You know I love that style  ;)

ah i see what you mean ;)

yeah i know  ;)

DMG ..stood out on the FaceMob albums..Devin was eh..on em...like out of his element...

Silence is more like a DMG solo album. (Devin is not on it)...
I agree that Devin is out of his element on some of the tracks (the hardcore ones),but he kills the slow ones.


thought the same..dmg goes hard...rap-a-lot crazy for not keepin him in the mix..him,big mike, willie d and 3-2 the only ones that was on the roster that useta eat everybodies favorite texas rapper for lunch everytime they got a verse from em...
