    Just not enough Eminem. I know it's not an album just for him, but, the only good thing is Eminem, and i'll even give it to 50. overall, very mediocre, only a few good songs. Download a few songs, this one's not worth your money.

    After listening to this album 2wice over fully and a few songs (the one's with eminem in particular) i have to say im very dissapointed. The opening track with Em/Obie/Cashis/BobbyCreek is blazing! If all the tracks on this tape was like this i would easily giv it a 9 or 10 but unfortunatly they're not. Tracks with the lesser known MCs are solid raps, but for songs that stand After listening to this album 2wice over fully and a few songs (the one's with eminem in particular) i have to say im very dissapointed. The opening track with Em/Obie/Cashis/BobbyCreek is blazing! If all the tracks on this tape was like this i would easily giv it a 9 or 10 but unfortunatly they're not. Tracks with the lesser known MCs are solid raps, but for songs that stand out on there own, there is nothing really shining.. When i listen to Eminem, i really enjoy his technique, but his subject matter and fake-gangster bravado seems unfitting and pretentious just to fit in with the rest of his camp. 4 or 5 great songs but the rest are throwaways, which is not good enough from the most prestegius roster in hip-hop 2day..BRING ON NAS'S New LP, Hip Hop isnt dead but with weakness like this - it sure is on its last legs in the mainstream Stevemodeen@aol.com Collapse

    this was ok but Eminem, didnt deliver as much as he should of. I love his work but this was worse than Relapse (Not that Relapse Is Bad most people think it is) I like some songs from D12 & Ca$his too bad Ca$his left Shady Records. Em if you make another mixtape with Shady Write better lyrics

  1. The Re-Up has plenty of that serious heat that influenced Eminem to go aboveground with the release.

    Despite meticulous production, "The Re-Up" retains some of the spare, raw feel of an underground release. [16 Dec 2006]

    There's plenty of unfocused bluster here, but enough taut cuts to make up for the cameos from... D12. [15 Dec 2006, p.87]
