He has that many guest apperances for a reason. No way he can handle an album by himself. Not because he doesn't know how to structure songs but because his entertaiment value is close to none. He gets outshined on every track, not lyricaly but simply by their delivery and vocals.

The arrangement of the album reminds me of what was considered a dope commercial hip-hop album from the early 2000s.  It's a collection of tracks that aren't connected in any particular manner.  It's supported by an MC, who may or may not be able to rap well, and decent to dope beats.  It's a fun album but it isn't a classic,

In some ways I'm disappointed.  Banks is an incredibly MC that has the ability to release a truly classic album.   I hate to say this but he needs a new mentor that isn't 50.  Some one that encourages him to tighten up the rhymes so all the bars related to a particular subject matter for that particular track.  Some one that encourages to record a non traditional hip-hop record.  Some one that encourages the art over the dollar.

I was hoping the full 80s Baby would be included on the album under a different name but it wasn't.  Hopefully that track will be leaked.

1)  Banks gave the public 5 free tapes of basically him going solo before he dropped this album of collaborations.



what were the mix tapes ?

Fab killed it! As for the nigga Banks, he's past his prime. Nigga was ill back in the day when G-Unit just got big. Now he's got a fucked up voice doing dull tracks.

Disappointing. Banks was on point lyrically but the production was just flat out bad.

I've listened to this album about 3 times and I'm digging it. A few of the joints definitely have that Hunger For More feel, and the album sounds like a New York album which is rare these days. "Father Time" is hard as fuck, "Take Em To War" and "Payback" probably my other two favourite tracks. Keen for those bonus tracks

1. Take 'Em 2 War - 3.5/5. Pretty good opener!
2. Unexplainable - 4/5. - Real NY hip hop shit here.
3. Payback - 4/5 - Same^. Good east coast hip hop. 50 laid a cool hook.
4. Home Sweet Home - 4.5/5. Cool 2 hear Banks & Pusha T on a track. Best song so far
5. Beamer, Benz or Bentley - 3.5/5. We've all heard it lol
6. So Forgetful - 3/5. Very skippable.
7. Father Time - 4/5. Good track
8. Start It Up - 5/5. Banger!
9. Celebrity - 2.75/5. Trash
10. On the Double - 3/5. Deleted already. No value
11. Any Girl - 3.75/5. Actually like it better than Beamer Benz Bentley. Hard beat
12. I Don't Deserve You - 3.5/5. The best "female" track on the album. Not sure it will have much replay value though.
13. Sooner or Later - 4/5. Again, good raw east coast hip hop

A very decent album. As close as Banks will ever get to replicating what he did on his first record. If your a Banks fan, U will love on this record. IF U not a Banks fan, will this won't change your mind so U shouldn't be listening to it anyways.

I agree with this pretty much on point, except "Start It Up" is a 3.5/5 for me... entertaining album overall
