  1. True, the record shudders to a virtual halt when the ecumenical auteur turns beatmaker midway through, and some may judge the rhymes irresponsibly playful.

    51 is a damn fine mixtape... one of this young year's best.

    Producer Amaze 88's quirky soul loops are all highlights, but the project veers off course when A.D. taps Bay Area-beatmaker Young L, and derails entirely (and possibly intentionally) when the rapper steps behind the boards.

    He sounds confident and comfortable, doling out that trademark weird.
