    What a dreadful album. I am extremely dissapointed by this. Why is it that rap stuff like Mims gets lots of commercial airplay but the truly great stuff out there gets ignored by the mainstream?

    I don't like Edwin C's cock-eyed argument that ressembles something like "God moves in mysterious ways". It seems everybody makes that kind of argument when they realize they like something no one else does. MIMS makes nothing revolutionary. He recycles a tried technic which involves self-boasting and repeating DUMB catch-phrases during the chorus.

It seems everybody makes that kind of argument when they realize they like something no one else does. MIMS makes nothing revolutionary. He recycles a tried technic which involves self-boasting and repeating DUMB catch-phrases during the chorus. Oh don't forget the slap samples, of course. Can't do a rap or hip hop album without those anymore. They're trendy. Avoid this album, unless you like to convince yourself what you listen to isn't trash because YOU like it and no one else does. If an album is trash, don't try to blame it on the trends, blame it on the artist that makes no effort to move away from a crowd of braindead poseurs who call themselves artists just because they can squeeze in words in a 4/4 track.

    Can't any of these lyrically challenged morons write about anything other than themselves? I roger your comment, C. Why can't any of the truly genius hip-hop, save for Kanye, who appears to be the exception, get heard? Please tell me there's more going on in the African-American community besides self-congratulation in the name of art.

Please tell me there's more going on in the African-American community besides self-congratulation in the name of art. A half-wit tuning into the national media can tell there's more happening than b...... and bling. To buy into the hype and believe otherwise is both insulting and racist. Like the rest of our culture, there's some serious problems inherent in the inner cities that could be properly addressed by a savior to whom people will listen. Unfortunately, Mims is not that savior. He's a poseur. Expand

  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. [A] fluid, likable disc.
  3. The disc contains more than a few moments where Mims' quick, confident style recalls Jay-Z's mid-'90s blinged-out phase.
