Initially I was digging it. What I found were sweet chillaxed beats underlying a talented rhymes-man. One of those rappers that sound like they've studied a thesaurus and learned to mix and match words to make them more pleasing to the ear. Some might say that's all you need.
It's tracks like those that make me want to just sit back and enjoy the rhyme flow. He keeps his rhythm with a persistent touch that sounds great against The Doppelgangaz relaxed production. The contrast is something many rappers should aspire for.
The problem is he doesn't say much. A lot of words, big and small, but no goal. Nothing to really say other than I'm here and I know how to rhyme. It's okay at first, but this is a complete album of the stuff.

All this aside, there gets a point where after you've heard enough rhyme magic, you realize he raps like a white guy. And I don't mean Eminem or Asher Roth (props for the mention, Croosh) but more like Beastie Boys or Vanilla Ice. It's not too easy to spot, but after a few listens you can tell he could iron out some wrinkles in his style.
For the price it can be, it's worth a listen. I can't deny the talent and that my head was bobbing back and forth for the majority of the album. Just make sure to open your ears, or maybe read the lyrics on the page.
