This cd is unlike any other .rod laver cd they have ever put out. It is their first cd, so it a little more raw than the others. What really makes this different is the harder edge mixed with more straight rap. That being said, I enjoyed the cd. I can imagine a lot of people will have a hard time getting into this cd, but give it a little time and it will grow on you. This is worth checking out. 7 out of 10 stars.
