1. We Got It For Cheap--introspective lyrics over a bouncy beat that stays gloomy enough to fit Clipse perfectly, the album wastes no time getting started 5/5

2. Momma I'm Sorry--trumps the 1st track by a mile, crazy accordion usage on this beat, this is the one i could not stop rewinding over and over again 5/5

3. Mr. Me Too f/ Pharell--we've all been bumping this one since summer, and this one still knocks, Pharell even spits a halfway decent 16 but probably should have stayed behind the boards 4.5/5

4. Wamp Wamp (What It Do) f/ Slim Thug--another knocking beat with a creative bassline, Slim Thug's hook is perfect and Clipse spit funny lyrics about bitches and coke, what more can you ask for 5/5

5. Ride Around Shining--the beats just keep on coming, this one kinda has a Wu-Tang feel to it, the old school vibe is a nice throwback 5/5

6. Dirty Money--this is apparently the song that Jive wanted to be used for the 1st single, but Clipse argued for Wamp Wamp and won.....this song is certainly no slouch, but the beat doesnt live up to the 5 straight bangers that preceded it 3.5/5

7. Hello New World f/ Pharell--The Neptunes craft another minimal track with a Pharell hook, Clipse body the track, another track to make you hit the rewind button 5/5

8. Keys Open Doors--this track is a legitimate contender for best on the album, with an eerie track and the title chant giving a ghostly vibe to Pusha & Malice's stories 5/5

9. Ain't Cha--just when the album was getting too gloomy, an upbeat track that may actually get some club play....Pusha spits a hilarious 16, and The Re-Up Gang make an uncredited cameo on the track, and arent much of a drop off from Clipse 4.5/5

10. Trill--the strangest sounding song on the album, the beat is all over the place....Clipse kills it yet again lyrically, and do a nice job of finding a place with the beat, by the end of it, you've forgotten how strange it sounded 4/5

11. Chinese New Year--The Re-Up Gang shows up again, Pharell cooks up another fire track, Pusha & Malice dont miss a step, you know the drill at this stage in the game 4.5/5

12. Nightmares f/ Bilal--another introspection track to close the album, both brothers deliver sorrowful stories over a bluesy track, Bilal's voice fits perfectly, great closer to the album 5/5



Overall=4.8/5



The only reason I don't give this a perfect rating is because it's tough to give that to an album that's only been out for a couple of weeks, but this album is the best I've heard in rap all year, and in a long time, as far as creativity and breathing life into topics that have been beaten into the ground as of late.....no matter what kind of rap you're personally into, this album is worth the listen, i'd even recommend going to the store and copping one, just to make sure we dont gotta wait 4 years for another one

4.5/5

This album is pure heat. Lyrically this is the best album I probably heard all year. Both Pusha and Malice are so witty and clever, the album is full of quotables that make you rewind that shit on the constant. I thought the production could've been better (Production wise I like Lord Willlin more), but the production didn't take away from the lyrical side of things.

"Dirty Money" & "Trill" (somewhat) are the tracks I usually don't listen too that much, but overall, sick album. Best group in Rap, period.

I was thinking of getting this, but I went with the new Count Bass D instead.

Maybe next week.

Not feeling this as much as the rest of you

I think their lyrics improved a great deal from Lord Willin' but I'm not too fond of the beats, I'm sick and tired of Neptunes. Not sure I'll be bumping this at all in 6 months. It's a solid release for sure but how they got a perfect rating in XXL is beyond me (but then again I'm an old hater so what can you do....)

3,5/5

I liked a few of the tracks off this album, most being the title tracks unfortuantely.

Only track(s) that I'll skip is "Dirty Money" & "Ain't Cha" (on occassion). Besides that, shit is on point.

4.5 mics.

Momma I'm Sorry is my personal favorite, closely followed by Keys Open Doors
