  1. Success has always been Jones' revenge, and while his ringleader ways allow this autobiographical album to sometimes go wildly off concept, it's clearly his most inspired set of songs to date.
  2. Jim Jones may be rolling out his fourth studio album (and first major-label release) with off-Broadway plays, documentaries and a movie, but don't get it twisted—the Harlem-born rapper hasn't lost his grime.
  3. So there you have it, a finely produced, polished, and performed album from one of the game's most hated emcees.

    Those looking for timeless music on Pray IV Reign may find their prayers unanswered. But if you’re one of Jones’ longtime disciples, Capo’s got you covered.
  5. He rhymes more like a ghetto businessman than a natural talent, sprinkling gruff rhymes with silly lines. But his open-armed commercialism mostly works.
