  1. Where his beats once evoked DJ Shadow picking through a crate of old comedy records, now he sounds like a hook-y, less bling-y Neptunes.
  2. As a whole, Politics of the Business never quite jells into the cohesive statement it wants to be.
  3. Spin

    The harpoons that Paul hurls at the industry's blubber have lost their edge. [June 2003, p.105]
  4. He set out to make a mediocre album, and succeeded admirably.
  5. Unfortunately, while Paul maintains a similar tone and approach almost throughout, the MCs he's working with don't, and this is the album's ultimate downfall.
  6. Surprisingly misguided and disjointed.
  7. Vibe

    The bigger problem is Paul's unexpectedly anemic production. [June 2003, p.155]

    The joke isn't well-conceived or funny enough to sustain over an hour. [#16, p.123]

    Targets all things "bling" with the same mix of bitter storytelling and star guests, only it's not as funny. [Jul 2003, p.111]
