    Really didn’t like his last tape and the poor quality but this right here is dope and great quality and just sounds all around better. Other rappers should take notes when you have talent you ain’t gotta have 100 features.

  • LaFlame

    Amsterdam’s finest Mr Probz on this shit!

  • MewLover34

    @Real Talk, Yeah, no.

  • Truth

    As someone who is very critical of the music comin out lately, this tape is absolute fire. Maybe the best project I heard this year, and I listen to everything. Production is dope, and you can tell how serious Banks takes his craft. Dope tape

  • datbul

    Wow. Highly impressed. Never exactly been a Lloyd Banks fan but this mixtape is nothing short of standout. The overall vibe feels like an homage to late nineties gritty New York Hip Hop– particularly in the choice of infectious yet never overwhelming beats. Lloyd’s flow is as tight as I’ve heard from anyone in the game, and, perhaps most surprisingly, his lyrics seem to be more introspective than ever. I don’t think there’s one bad song on the album, and a good 3/4 is well above average. Again, thoroughly impressed. Of course, this probably has a good deal to do with going into the project with no expectations.

  • Frost

  • kl

    Mixtape king

  • killa

    this shit is too good

  • J Dub

    The first track is good & thats about it. The rest of the tape is boring. This is not his best effort lyrically. I give it 2 out of 5 stars.

  • mpls612

    g-unit and the lox should do a album together!

  • 2dope4nope

    PLK for a reason, and true waits for non dj tape just like Crenshaw but lucky some joints I kept w/o drama screaming but this tape too dope!

  • word

  • Truth Siren

  • Prevster

  • kayo

    Banks at it again this shit is DOPE. death to the fake

  • newyorker

    lyrically and everything so underrated. he is deff better then the 90% rappers out today. most rappers get worse after 10 years but banks improves and stays relevant even tho the game changed so much from 2000s to now
