  1. The compelling three-quarters of Definition of Real that seems to have crawled out of the gutter proves that Plies is best off when he does it the ski-mask way.
  2. He comes across as a Southern-fried early DMX with his unabated aggression; raw, explosive verse; and hints of conscience.
  3. As it stands, Definition of Real may not be an instant classic, but it isn't a sophomore slump either, and there are signs that there could be more to Plies beyond his drawl and his love of female reproductive organs.
  4. This follow-up to his striking debut album, “The Real Testament” (2007), lacks some of that album’s rawness, but is still strong, thanks to his shockingly literal and unforgiving rhymes.
