The best stuff on this is straight fire and years later I can still go back to it and enjoy it as much as ever. Lyrically, there is some controversial stuff but at the same time humorous, and while the beats do sound a bit dated, most still bang. The weakest portion of this album is 'What?' to 'Nothing 2 Show' with all three lacking in the production department, but then it finishes fairly well with the funnily overly misogynistic BushWick solo 'Dirty Bitch' - "I wouldn't care if you burned in a fire, Crashed in a plane or got hit by a motherfuckin train."
A solid banging album from the hip hop vets.
Best Tracks: Declaration of War, Yes, Yes, Y'all, I Tried, G-Code, Dirty Bitch
