On their debut album Azz Izz, Mokenstef follow in the footsteps of TLC, turning in a poor man's version of CrazySexyCool. That doesn't mean the record is without its pleasure -- the trio are good vocalists and given the right material, like the hit single "He's Mine," they can come close to the funky sensuality of TLC. However, Mokenstef simply doesn't have the charisma or personality of TLC, which means they can't make mediocre material convincing. And unfortunately, too much of Azz Izz is comprised of mediocre material.
