AllMusic Review by

Public Enemy producer Hank Shocklee is behind this Atlanta quintet, but those searching for the vet's inventive and impressive skills will be disappointed by the sameness and lameness of this generic slice of hip-hop. None of the rappers break from the pack, and the Southern bounce of most of the tracks has become rote. By-the-numbers hip-hop that offers nothing to the genre.
