As Head Up proves, G-Mo isn't your traditional underground rapper; his whole-hearted persona integrates some hard gangsta attitude for charisma, but it's pretty obvious that he is too talented of a musician to fall too far into the gangsta lifestyle. As the photos in the CD booklet allude to, C-Bo can produce beats as well as drop tight rhymes. In both areas, he proves surprisingly competent, especially when compared to other West Coast underground rappers. In the end, his sincere command of respect coupled with his thankful avoidance of overly theatrical posturing in favor of sincerity makes him a likable rapper. Even though his album isn't of superstar caliber, its still impressive.
