    Busta stampedes through a survey of current rap styles with boundless wit, energy and quality rhymes. [Mar 2002, p.96]
  2. Genesis happily trades profundity and depth (never Rhymes' strong points) for trunk-rattling bass and radio-ready hooks, and the results are surprisingly terrific.
  3. Goes on a bit, predictably (20 tracks!), but only Jay-Z can match its highlights for party soundtrack of the year.
  4. This time around the beats seem darker and more synth-oriented, giving it an edge reminiscent of the bass-heavy G-funk sound.

    Despite a few monotonous moments, Genesis is an exciting ode to hydro and ho's. [7 Dec 2001, p.104]
  6. Remains in the tradition of his previous releases, offering a combination of witty rhymes and unforgettable hooks.
