  • Summary: This debut for New York rapper Shawn Mims--which includes his hit single "This Is Why I'm Hot"--was produced by Miami's Blackout Movement.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 4 out of 8
  2. Negative: 1 out of 8
  1. He can focus on the serious, the sentimental, or the fun side of life when he needs to, but he does it all without seeming like he's forcing out a persona.
  2. The disc contains more than a few moments where Mims' quick, confident style recalls Jay-Z's mid-'90s blinged-out phase.
  3. Generic, yes, but that is no cause for complaint when the genre is so good.
  4. Mims can’t carry a whole album, and Savior is long on quasi-Southern junk rhymes about Mims’ general excellence and panty-melting suaveness.
  5. 40
    A tepid debut. [May 2007, p.121]
  6. Peel away the accessibility of his fluffy debut and there's nothing but major-label album fodder.
