    I agree with a critic for once. Yeah this was a long album, too bad it wasn't one you didn't want to end. I found one maybe two possible single out of the whole thing, the rest sound ALOT alike. Had high expectations for this one, maybe next time.

  1. Now we see. It is all clear. DMX believes what they say in Def Jam board meetings. He actually believes that what Mr Budden and Just Blaze did earlier this year is what one should do in hip-hop right now - meaning, shout popular thug slogans over irritatingly OTT beats for an hour or so.
  2. Grand Champ would make a great single. As it stands, it's about a full hour more of DMX hollering gruffly than anybody really needs.
  3. Too little stands out to make Grand Champ more than an uneven contender.
