    It's an indulgent side project and the monotony of the production is enough that the 'McKayla is Not Impressed' face may be unavoidable.

    Even with him covering just about every lyric here, this album never stagnates.

    The productions are steeped in soul and R&B, offering a more upbeat and clean sound than the usual Wu murk and a Masta Killa companion to Ghostface's retro effort Ghostdini the Wizard of Poetry in Emerald City.

    With Selling My Soul, Masta Killa seems to have winged his way through songs that are lazy and conceptually not well put together.

    ["All Natural" is] the one song on the spotty, often comatose Selling My Soul that sounds like it needed to be made.

    The MC never feels particularly inspired on this disc, his momentum crashing after the first few tracks. [Jan-Feb 2013, p.93]

    It's an album with no direction, no cohesion and a striking lack of energy.

    In perfect Wu-Tang style, Masta Killa releases this decent album for songs like "Soul & Substance" and "R U Listening", but for the rest of the tracks, this album is the voice of the ordinary. Collapse
