    This is a great album. The production is solid. The lyrics are solid. The only complaint I have with it is that Phonte doesn't change up his style, and the beats and his flow can be repetitive. Other than that, it is almost a perfect album.

    Good, Classic Album. It takes me back to the little brother days. Love the way he raps and sings. Eternally, The Good Fight, To Be Yours, and We Go Off are my favorite tracks of the album.

    A well-balanced marriage of all of Phonte's musical inclinations.

    With his gloriously grown-up solo debut, one of the smartest, most incisive lyricists alive proves it's possible to grow older in hip-hop while retaining your dignity.

    Undeniably, Charity Starts At Home reminds why the rapper has been a darling of the underground for years.
