    DMX knows how to make classic albums. This album is a 10/10. DMX's lyrics are genius and also the beats. Now a days we need these classic albums the rejuvenate hip-hop again

  1. The most depressing thing about this album is that DMX's passion for rhyming seems to have been eclipsed by his success.

    The music remains a potent mix of stuttering party anthems and post-Biggie street sermons. [Feb 2002, p.114]
  3. DMX is stuck at the crossroads that confronts every rapper trying to keep it real when reality no longer plays like an action movie.
