1. Intro-nice beat, Luda spits for about a minute 4/5
2. Number One Spot-hot beat and good rhymes over a shockingly ill "Austin Powers" sample 5/5
3. Get Back-nice bouncy track, good choice for 1st single 4.5/5
4. Put Your Money f/ DMX-this one's been circulating for a minute now...still hot, DMX is only on the refrain 4/5
5. Blueberry Yum Yum f/ Sleepy Brown-kinda predictable, but still enjoyable to listen to 3.5/5
6. Child Of The Night f/ Nate Dogg-Nate & Luda have proved to be a good tandem before, and this track is no different 4.5/5
7. Potion-craziest beat on this album, Timbaland's innovative style strikes gold again, if this isnt the 2nd single, Def Jam South is dumb 5/5
8. Pass Out-another nice beat, very catchy, and Luda spits nicely 4/5
9. Skit-kinda funny, still annoying anyway 1/5
10. Spur Of The Moment f/ DJ Quik-This collabo should have happened earlier and needs to happen more 4.5/5
11. Who? Not Me f/ Small World & Dolla Boy-decent beat, waste of an album track to showcase DTP nobodies 2/5
12. Large Amounts-odd sample, alright beat-2.5/5
13. Pimpin' All Over The World f/ Bobby Valentine-sounds kinda radioish and contrived-2/5
14. Two Miles Per Hour-subject matter promising about people's car obsession with cars, weak hook and beat kill it-1.5/5
15. Hopeless f/ Trick Daddy-Trick always seems to do well in guest shots, nice beat-3.5/5
16. Virgo f/ Nas & Doug E. Fresh-seems to be thrown on to pad the album, as it is a track from "Street's Disciple", for that reason it gets a low rating 1/5

Overall-3.75/5

This album doesn't drop til December 7th, but I got the bootleg copy, so I thought I would share my review. This is the one of the most surprising albums this year. I think it's up there with Luda's best. The only thing that takes away from its quality is that it loses steam after the skit. There are only a few bangers, but they need assists from DJ Quik & Trick Daddy. All he needs to do next time is not give DTP spare parts a track and not pad out his album with songs from other people's, very good album overall, i just may go buy the legit one when it drops

I listened to some of this at the store and honestly wasn't feeling it at all. Chicken & Beer fuckin sucks, too. His first two are great, though. Luda's been relegated to dope guest spots. It's over.

I dont understand how it being on 2 different albums lowers the songs rating? its a very dope track .

I thought this album was awful besides "Large Amounts" and the opening track.

Where's the punchlines from Word of Mouf?

This album's just as bad as Chicken and Beer.

i"ve got it and after a couple of listens, i wouldn't get it again.

The intro,Potion,Virgo, Blueberry Yum Yum, and Large Amounts are cool but not impressive.

The rest is pretty much trash.

I need to check this eventhough I'm not impressed with what I heard from this album. I really like his 3 previous albums but somehow it seems like he's been too busy. Should focus more on quality than quantity.

if anybody thinks this album is good, then they must not have listened to it. It beats a Chingy album but after the first 5 or 6 songs, it's very disappointing. This album was rushed and whoever the dude is that did this review should not ever do another review in his life.
