AllMusic Review by

With almost 15 years of chemistry to capitalize on, producer the Alchemist and Mobb Deep rapper Prodigy are one of the most simpatico teams in the game. The attractive Albert Einstein proves it, as swagger cut follows diss cut follows death threat before the cycle repeats (loosely), but even if that's a horribly narrow range for such veteran artists, fans will likely think the whole thing comes off like butter. Pimp declarations like "Raw Forever," "The One," and "Stay Dope" all deliver on their cold, stern titles and when sliced in half, the overstuffed album seems less redundant and shakes out nicely. Complain that they're stuck in a rut or praise that they're still able to do it convincingly, because this album gives up evidence to support either argument.
