Code of the Streets

A lot of the stuff on this “mixtape” is pretty crappy, too many soft beats. Heatmakerz, 9th Wonder, Buckwild, Premier in ’97 mode … some of the shit is straight but there are too many moments when the music doesn’t live up to the promise of the bad-ass coverart. That said: you get to hear Vybz Kartel and Elephant Man over classic Cuban Linx beats!!! With Ghostface! It says the track is produced by some dude “Ill Will Fulton” but he just ripped the loop the same way as RZA. This makes up for the ehhh Ghostface + Elephant Man track on that Def Jamaica compilation. Other tracks worth checking out – the ones with Lil Flip and T.I. Lil Flip’s still doing gun rhymes but I like this verse anyway, I know heads prefer his candy coat rap style but his voice is still the catchiest shit in rap; and T.I. is in a can-do-no-wrong stage w me right now so: there you go.
