Reviews:

I know it's hard for you to discard what's carved in you," he raps to himself, and that about sums up this Midwestern hip-hop breakout-he's either too experienced a battler or too wise a preacher to present himself as anything but a bad example. Which is good, because he's on a Joe Strummer-sized mission: "Waheedah's Hands" quotes a Bill Withers chorus to pay homage to the women who carved him. "Heads Down (You Haven't Done That Yet)" celebrates cunnilingus as man's work. "Chain Link" (with a cameo by Harlem's Vast Aire) is about the workers of the world, via Minneapolis's West Broadway. Atmosphere's Ant provides futurist reggae, alien soul, and funk that evokes gospel without exactly sampling it. Makes you remember that Illmatic was only around forty minutes long too.
