The Andre 3k cameo was a surprise. Good to hear him back with the DF. He flexed a new flow on this one. Organized Noize production throughout is fantastic. Gipp, in particular, is in top notch emcee form throughout here. T-Mo coming strong too throughout. Cee-Lo more in spoken word mode here than anything like, say, Microhard, so anybody who had prior concerns about Lo "outshining" the other three on the mic, that didn't happen on this album (side note: Lo flexes dope new flows on Off Road and Me Tyme). I am still listening as I type this. Very happy to hear a Big Rube interlude. He kills it as always.

There’s a dip. They survive it and come out strong. There’s at least 3 songs that had no business making the album from tone and quality standpoints. I see a lot about rap acts being repetitive. But the mix up just for the sake of mixing it up doesn’t always work out. This album has that so be ready to step over some missteps and roll on.

The Big Boi song is a lot better than the Stacks song. It feels like recording in Stankonia doesn’t let ONP get those dark tones that they were getting in the Dungeon for Soul Food and Still Standing. Their beats sound thin.
