I don’t think it’s better than New Testament or Just Add Water.

What’s up with him using this sample on like 5 tracks?


Also the mastering is god awful. I’ve never heard an album with such glaring differences in volume between songs. For My Niggaz and She Ain’t Giving It Up are quiet as fuck

Suga Free quote from the KDAY interview regarding DJQuik and the song Good Enough:

“We good, man. He did some production on the record, man. It’s a song called “Good Enough”. We got “Good Enough” right? Ok, so we’re going to give you a four-piece! Again, this song is fueled with comedy. It’s real catchy, very, very, very catchy. We recorded this right here in Burbank. Three days I was out here, working on this one song. I actually wrote this out!”

Sounds like it would have been amazing. Supposedly he had it with him at the kday interview and they played it (?). Someone had to have heard it.

I knew right away when I saw he was doing a cover contest for the album that it was not gonna have high standards.

One of the lowest quality albums in recent memory:

1. The album sounds like it was mixed with Fruity Loops stock plug-ins (not a good thing).
2. The drums are way too loud on most songs. Poor drum selection as well, the kick is not even tuned to the key of the instruments on most songs.
3. Congestion around 250Khz and 500Khz on most songs. A sign of amateur mixing.
4. This album wasn't mastered - every song has different volumes and it sounds like it was recorded in different studios.
5. Cheap microphones - you can tell that this album was recorded with $100 dollar microphones into cheap converters, the vocals are sterile and boxy sounding, lack of de-essing.
6. Too much compression on most songs - no dynamics at all.
7. The bass just sounds terrible. The low-end is muddy and there is no separation between the low frequencies, the lower-mids and the mids. Sheesh, this is the worst mixing I have ever heard on a commercial release. Even most low budget mixtapes from the hood sounds better than this.

Final grading:
Lyrics & Content: B-
Beats: C
Mixing: F
Mastering: F

I'll give this album D- grade overall or a 3/10.

It sounds like Suga Free spent more money at McDonalds than mixing or mastering this album.

Pretty on point here but I just disagree about a couple of the grades:
Lyrics and content: A-
Beats: B+

If this album was mixed properly it could actually be considered one of his best albums. The Snoop song is classic.

All you had to do was look at the album cover to instantaneously know how much (or little) money was sunk into this project. Still....Suga must have done you wrong badly for you to register and hate on this album in your first ever post lmao

In addition to this I don't know why most tracks are around 2 and a half minutes long

The way he was carrying on in the KDAY interview, he talked like this was going to be his best work ever. Like fans weren’t going to believe the tracks he had. The rope a dope, greatest comeback of all time, back with dj quik. And what we got was a bunch of poorly mixed two minute tracks that about half of them weren’t even good and Quik was barely on it and doubt he produced anything on this besides Hearts. And honestly that was probably a leftover from some other project that Quik basically just threw him a bone and let him have it cause Quik wasn’t doing anything with it.

I do not believe for one second that Suga Free submitted this finished product and truly thought in his mind this was his greatest work since Street Gospel. This album seemed like a half assed attempt to throw some shit together for a quick cash grab and not an album that he had been working on for the past 5 years.

I strongly disagree. His flow, lyrics, and beats are all quality Suga Free. The only thing you can tear apart is the mixing and mastering and rightfully so but that doesn’t mean he didn’t try to put together a slumpin album. If it was mixed properly this album would slap. There’s hope this might actually be done. He might have felt rushed releasing it since he’s been delaying it for a while

I don't think they were hating at all. That's actually a pretty damn accurate portrayal of the album. Suga Free, who came up under one of the greatest engineer/producers in rap music (Quik), should know better and have higher standards when it comes to mixing and mastering. Not saying he has to spend a ton of money and have Quik mix his album and Brian Big Bass Gardner master it, but he could at least go somewhere that would do the basic stuff right. I could spend literally 5 minutes in any DAW with a free limiter plugin and fix the inconsistent volume levels. There's no excuse for this shit.

I never disagreed with what the poster said, the only reason I called it ''hating'' is because he signed up to the forum for the sole purpose of posting that review possibly never to return again.
