X-Raided (Nefarious) - Speak of the Devil
« on: May 21, 2002, 03:36:15 PM »
X-Raided (Nefarious) – Speak of the Devil

1. Worldwide…Tight loop combined with the waterdrops sound.  X flows his ass off.  Guest rapper Hanifah flows well, too.  She’s a nice addition to the track.  4.5/5
2. The hole…Raw ass lyrics about jail.  Wicked gangsta beat.  5/5
3. Catch you…Dark sounding production.  Song features Brotha Lynch Hung who lays down a decent verse.  X only does the hook.  3.5/5
4. Fatal blow…Sounds like a slowed down version of the prelude on Niggaz4Life.  He rides the track amazingly.  5/5
5. Never loved…Production has the dark feel to it with a strange frequency squelching sound in the background.  Tight lyrics.  4.5/5
6. Trail by fury…Song about living by the street code and not snitching.  Nice production.  3.5/5
7. Only in the studio…Wicked beat.  The song’s about studio gangsters.  Features Mr. Doctor who is a good addition to the track.  4/5
8. Jealous…Amazing production and some of X’s dopest lyrics.  5/5
9. Hellraizer…Quality production.  Nice track about choices in life.  4/5
10.   The evil that men do…The beat is decent, but the actual quality falters a bit along with X’s verse.  C-Bo adds a good verse.  UTG puts down a rapid fire flow.  3.5/5
11.   Decapitation…Good old-school sounding beat.  Quality isn’t as good on X’s verses, but the lyrics are tight.  3.5/5
12.   Use yo nina…Good loop, decent lyrics.  3/5
13.   Incarcerated…Another old school beat.  Again, quality of X’s voice isn’t as good as the rest of the album.  3/5
14.   Nefarious…Nice, smooth beat.  Tight lyrics.  3.5/5

OVERALL…8/10

For recording these tracks from jail, the vocals sound crystal clear, except for the last few tracks.  Some of the tightest production on one album.  Not your regular run-of-the-mill sounding beats.  Album has the gangsta feel to it, but most songs also have messages to them.
