  • Summary: This long-delayed second album for Virginia brothers Malice and Pusha T was produced in full by The Neptunes.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 28 out of 29
  2. Negative: 0 out of 29
  1. They're unflinchingly unsensationalistic. But it's the beats that turn this into noir worthy of Jim Thompson. [Feb/Mar 2007]
  2. These clattering and clear-eyed tracks add up to something singular. [27 Nov 2006]
  3. The Neptunes' pitch-perfect production allied with Pusha-T and Malice's vicious, witty rhymes make Hell Hath No Fury one of the records of the year.
  4. 80
    It's ghetto viciousness as literary exercise--an episode of The Wire with a better soundtrack. [Nov 2006, p.142]
  5. Hell Hath No Fury stands as one of the most entertaining releases of the year, patched with glorious lyrical play, blinging exercises in fantasy and a jaunty half-seriousness.
  6. 60
    The stark beats are the best Hugo and Williams have built in years. But its themes--dealing, girls--require more lyrical innovation to compel. [Feb 2007, p.105]

    Ridiculous lyrics that really give you a ripe image of gangster glory in your mind. Pusha-T and Malice are, quite honestly, the most Ridiculous lyrics that really give you a ripe image of gangster glory in your mind. Pusha-T and Malice are, quite honestly, the most underrated MCs of our time. And the Neptunes' simple, dark and artistic beats provide the perfect backdrop for the themes of the album. Expand

    Very lyrical, with awesome crazy beats. Those that are saying this album isn't clever, I bet you listen to that Soulja Boy garbage. Very lyrical, with awesome crazy beats. Those that are saying this album isn't clever, I bet you listen to that Soulja Boy garbage. "I'm on touch with the keys, move over Alicia" has 3 puns in itself. The only downside to this album is that again all they rap about is coke, although that is the case, they keep finding new and better ways to talk about it which makes it all the more better. Expand
