really strong album, but about 15 years late.

if this came out before or after eastsidaz it'd be classic.

After a first spin, it's a solid album, production is on top

After my first listen album sounds pretty damn solid.

The thing that has gotten me excited about this project is the DPG & West showing unity for Tray Deee's album, seriously who would of thought in 2016 that we would get a Tray Deee solo album with features from Snoop, Kurupt, Soopafly, Techniec , Goldie Loc, Xzibit, Kokane, Crooked I & DJ Quik, with production from Fred Wreck & Battlecat. I'm pretty damn happy  8)

Cross-posted from the other thread:

I listened to a number of tracks.

Well, first off...gangsta rap is so utterly stale. Tray Deee is a very good rapper and has always been, but his subject matter has never been anything but obsolete gang talk and this album does not seem to be different (nor was I or anyone else expecting it to be, I am sure). Basically, what Tray Deee raps about in 2016 was already clichéd and played out when he recorded the first Eastsidaz album. Boring to the nth degree and unadventurous to boot! Granted, this is real in the sense that this is what Tray Deee's life is/was like but that does not make it anymore trite. Clearly, this is not just Tray Deee's fault but more generally that of the westcoast in general. Move on and take risks.

Now there's no denying the man can spit. Like I said, he's very good on a technical level and consistently so. To me though, this only exacarbates that he simply has nothing interesting to spit. A pity.

Bitch, snitch, gangsta, rich/
money, crime, doing time/
Played this card from the heart,
cause honestly/
those words are enough to sum you up Tray Deee/
show some growth and until then/
ya should've read some more while in the pen/
expand your vocab, extend your rap/
it's your D-I-C-tionary you ought to grab/
and then -perhaps- we'll see/
a truly Big Tray Deee/
who can really impress me verbally.


Now, the guests I heard all did their thing but can you blame them for not putting in a great effort? It is not as if Tray Deee was forcing them to adept. I will say that I found most of the guests I heard to flow well, which may actually be because of our host here who is an effortless spitter and certainly has excellent flow. Unfortunately, his flow is always the same. It does emphasise to me though that Tray Deee is better suited to guest verses; they allow him to shine while he can not carry an album by himself (at least not with his normal/perpetual style). When listening to these tracks, you tend to yearn for something to break the monotony thanks to generally mediocre beats and Tray Deee's repetitiveness, his talent aside. By the way, I did not think Soopafly and Snoop performed poorly on their guest verses as so many people here seem to think. Besides, when was the last time we heard these two on the same track? That has grown into something to cherish.
As mentioned before, the guest list itself is nice and almost a welcome throwback. Even so, Tray Deee chose to surround himself with people who are basically westcoast relics like himself plus a number of (relative) nobodies plus Snoop and Crooked I, who may fall into one of those two categories anyway. There do not seem to be any guests who would have forced Tray Deee himself to step up his game and that is a pity.

So, generally speaking: boring and unmemorable but not because Tray Deee is a bad rapper per se.
Z knows about ALL your inner conflicts..

shit's banging....best Westcoast album this year bar none....  i was most disappointed by the Soopafly track. i expected it to be the best track with all them vets and Soopafly on production...  instead its autotune and trap beats...

the best song to me is the Eastsidaz / Battlecat track "Eastdside Finest" towards the end....

They say better late than never but agreed 15 too late even for a solid album, the appreciation isn't the same as when he dropped Gen List.

yeas, i like it, and order the cd, but i am an ol school g funk, gangsta rap fan.

and 2016 is NOT the gangsta rap time/area.

"Hold Up" is the best autotune track in years. "Hard & Rugged" is good ol' Tray Deee shit. "Diirty Outlawz" makes me wanna hear more from Diirty OGz, Im looking forward to that album. "General's Salute" with Prodigy sounds like some grimy Eastcoast Mobb Deep shit but I like it. "Moved Up" came together nice, they stay using autotune but it sounds good! I had higher expectations about "Tell Me About It" with Problem & Crooked I, sounds aight thou... "Eastside Finest" with Goldie Loc sounds like the good ol Eastsidaz shit and DJ Quik comes off nice on "How West Was Won". Would be good to hear Quik himself produce that one but still, it's nice. "This World" produced by Battlecat is a nice way to end the album.

Still been listening to this album and really enjoying it but I just wish the audio quality was better, the mixing really lets it down.

Good to see Tray Deee taking a shot at Rick Ross too on "On the Blocc"   8)

This is mixed really badly.  It's a shame because there are some good tracks on here.  To the guy who wants a "link", it's all over youtube, download the audio if you won't support it.

Good album, been bumpin' this a lot lately. There's a few songs i don't like, but that's because of the beats. Has anybody purchased the album yet?
