Method Man & Redman Review (Vibe.com)

“In a young man’s game, the middle-aged MCs have forged an album that reflects their belief that skills will always trump bells and whistles. Don’t mistake it for complacency—blame it on consistency. BO2 passes the smell test.”

Got to review Method Man and Redman’s Blackout! 2 for Vibe.com and I was impressed.

But hey, who reads reviews nowadays anyway?

On a related note, much has been said lately about Joe Budden going at Method Man over Vibe’s bracketology. Really, it’s the same shtick Jump Off is known for; talk slick over the Internet, act suprised people took his words out of context, then feign like he’ll be taking the high road.

Whether you think Method Man is that deal or, like Funkmaster Flex, think that he is overrated, when comparing the gamut of their respective careers, Budden has a LONG way to go [II] before he’ll be in Meth’s league.

Alright, back to our regularly scheduled programming…

Jadakiss Review (Vibe.com)

I got to relay my thoughts on Jadakiss’ new The Last Kiss album over at Vibe.com. I’ve kept the album on rotation since and I think I was on point with the critique; while for most MCs the album is a win, it isn’t close to the homerun Jadakiss is capable of creating. But hey, ‘Kiss would probable tell me to kiss his ass anyway (that song should have been on the album).
