As a diehard Nore fan since the War Report days this album was a complete disappointment as well as a tough listen. On his latest offering N.O. sticks to his usual loud boisterous self and kicks tales of ghetto trials and tribulations as well as partying his ass and in turn creates an all over the place musical mess. The Lefrak City superthug is on top of his game with club smashes like “Nothin” and “Headbussa” but besides those two gems the rest of the LP is basically a bunch of…well…NOTHIN!! “Nah Mean U Heard” is a screeching headache causing disaster with a chorus to match the equally stupid song titile. The Neptunes also provide some hair pulling anger on the annoyingly boring “Consider This” and Heather Hunter almost outshines the Queens bred MC on the laughable “Big D”. Definetly not one to be played in the car if you have a reputation to watch after. It’s on songs like these how much you realize just how far Nore has fallen since the early-CNN days of mid to late 90’s. Also boasting 3 lame skits and plenty of filler this one was definetly a candidate for worst of ’02.
