Sporting a Houston drawl and a Dirty South personality, Pookey P moves through a thankfully brief set of tracks centering on the dark side of gangsta life. The themes cast him as a fairly evil-minded individual, and the fact that he drops two "screwed" versions of arguably the two best songs here -- "Pimp, Playa's, Hustlers" and "Catch a Fire" -- only adds to the album's malicious tone. Actually, the fact that this album features "screwed" versions is probably the album's most noteworthy feature, a decision that seems questionable and no doubt trendy given this album's 2000 release date -- the year that this "syrup sippin'" phenomenon first surfaced as a down-South trend.
