AllMusic Review by

If you've heard this album, you definitely know that Tim Smooth is quite heterosexual. On this album he talks for almost an hour about his crazy sex life and not a whole lot else. The beats are funky and he's got one of the most dramatic rapping styles in all of rap music, as he's definitely put a lot of effort and criticism in how his delivery works with the beat. The result is a blend of long, deep basslines, languid gangsta raps, and a few complementary appearances from Mystikal, G-Slimm, Nas-T, and Rated X. Most surprisingly, there is yet another remix of 1985's "La Di Da Di" by Slick Rick and legendary beatboxer Doug E. Fresh. Snoop Doggy Dogg did his own rendition of the song in 1994 on Doggystyle, and Tim Smooth's track is a somewhat blatant ripoff of Snoop's version -- perhaps an unneccesary addition at the end of a pretty good album.
