With this long-awaited follow-up to Legal Hustle, one of the great Queensbridge rap/crack game legends in hiphop history returns to show the little duns how to do this, son.
Neither excessively nihilistic nor depressingly caught up in the modern Gotham City identity crisis, Cormega is too authentic to forget how to make real, respectable hiphop.
The production is varied and generally excellent, but random guest MCs waste prime time when uncut Cormega is what we really want to hear. More AZ and Nature collabos, fewer anonymous solo a cappellas.
Many are unaware of Cormega’s Nasty Nas-level street-hop storytelling gift, which is perfected in this edutaining CD/DVD project. The last of a dying breed of great New York City MCs.
