  • Summary: The incarcerated rapper won't be touring for a while, but that didn't stop him from releasing his first album in four years, which features collaborations with Just Blaze, Cam'ron, The Neptunes, Snoop Dogg and Buckwild.

  1. Only two things matter here: the production, which is masterful, and Beanie himself, a virtuoso of lonely, bitter desperation.
  2. One of the strongest albums of 2005, Beanie Sigel stands among the greatest of the Roc-A-Fella catalogue with technical ability and an emotional severity worth experiencing.
  3. Finds him at his most vulnerable--and his best. [15 Apr 2005, p.78]
  4. Sigel is qualified enough as an artist to hold down an album on his own, but one gets the sense he didn't want to take any chances this record wouldn't sell and had to make sure there was one cameo for everyone.
  5. The B.Coming is no metamorphosis; Beans remains the same powerful but limited rhymer, a blunt object hammering the mic and stumbling after the ghost of Jay-Z.
  6. 70
    At times, he overreaches. [Jun 2005, p.158]
  7. [A] worthless attempt at mainstream love.
