AllMusic Review by

The polished full-length from Paradime, aka the Chubby Jon B, out of the dirty depths of Detroit is further claim to the wealth of hip-hop talent from the Great Lakes State. This gruff, self-proclaimed boorish boozer brings a fierce gargling flow to the mic coupled with the signature Detroit twisted wit. Dime's lyrics and concepts are wickedly clever backed by a kaleidoscope of beats and compositions provided by the Beats-At-Will production squad. Paradime represents Detroit with a brash and unique sound by combining the abstract with just plain rowdiness. Tracks like "Fire and Ice" outline Dime's schizo niceness on the microphone while cuts like "The Shining," "Gimme Mine," and the hip-hop drinking anthem "Ode to Guinness" feature tight lyrics over well-crafted beats. More entertaining and innovative than 75% of major-label material.
