It's highly unlikely that Buck 65 is ever going to become the cash cow that his paymasters probably thought he was going to be, but let's hope that he is invited to keep on presenting us with his skewed worldview; a beautiful painting seen in a shattered and blood stained mirror.
Buck's refusal to recognise musical boundaries and his instinctive ability to pick out elements that work together--sometimes surprisingly so--have given us a genre-bending album of high artistic vision, spit and grit. [#258, p.52]

SteveNov 4, 2005This album is lacking. What happened? The man could fashion words together in ways that boggle the mind. This album is country trip-hop.

The album also includes a female vocalist that was well, she could go back to what she was doing and decay. "Hip-Hop ruined my life"? nawww, you ain't hip-hop no more. Maybe if i OD on drugs i could understand it better, until i enter that state save your money. out… Expand
