    Fish Outta Water is a very strong project.
  2. Fish Outta Water is a bright, colorful album that does an excellent job of incorporating different styles into a cohesive whole.
  3. Now, two years after the barbershoppy crew’s breakup, the Justin Timberlake of J5 delivers his solo debut, with predictably solid results.
  4. Had the fish-minded emcee trimmed some fat, Fish Outta Water could have been the album we were all craving from the 2na.
  5. Fish Outta Water may lack the demographic-tripping vibe that even a Jurassic 5 in turmoil could whip up, but it's a mostly winning debut that makes up in vocal prowess for what it lacks in hooks.
  6. This is an assured solo debut from the MC. [Oct 2009, p.111]

    Best known as the distinctive voice of backpack hip-hop faves Jurassic 5, Chali 2na is sometimes reduced to a supporting role on his solo debut.
