    Shyne's Tupac-esque reflections on honor and mortality are penetrating, and suggest there are greater meditations yet to be unleashed. [20/27 Aug 2004, p.126]
  2. Godfather Buried Alive is a worthy listen, showcasing Shyne's unfiltered honesty in its uncompromising form.
  3. While the J-Kwons and Juveniles enjoy the fruits of paradise and their Lexus helicopters, Shyne reminds us of the ones who didn't make it: the legions of his fellow Clinton inmates fighting to keep afloat under prison's psychic burden.

    An uneven affair. [15 Aug 2004]
