Though given Rappin' 4-Tay's decade in the rap game, fans hardly need an Introduction to Mackin', the album turns out to be one of his best yet. Part of the reason is the great cast of guest appearances -- Snoop Dogg, Kurupt, Daz, Frost, Jayo Felony -- but it's also due to 4-Tay himself, who provides a focus for each track, lends his production skills to the music-making, and wraps his rhymes around quite a few compelling grooves. It's nowhere near perfect, but Introduction to Mackin' is more than just another played-out gangsta fairytale.
