    In general, Federline enunciates well. [11 Nov 2006]
  2. The worst thing about Playing with Fire is that it's too stale and inept to inspire laughter: it can only elicit weary groans.
  3. His flow is generic and instantly forgettable and his lyrics are trite, inconsequential and full of self-importance.
  4. This disc is just as disposable and dumb as you'd expect.
  5. Vibe

    His constipated, region-nonspecific flow overwhelms even the most flamboyant beats. [Jan 2007, p.119]
  6. Federline's rhyme flow is the opposite of tight.
  7. Other rappers might hesitate to brag about marrying into bling, but Federline isn't self-conscious about it.
