Mack 10 doesn't come across as an original on his self-titled debut, he comes across as a follower. Over a standard G-funk backdrop, complete with deep bass and whining synths, Mack 10 dishes out a multitude of clichéd gangsta lyrics -- he simply lacks personality. The only time Mack 10 comes alive is when his mentor, Ice Cube, appears on "West Side Slaughter House." Cube adds fire and rage to an album that desperately needs more passion.
