AllMusic Review by

Scaramanga's debut, Seven Eyes Seven Horns, features the Brooklyn MC better known as Sir Menelik spinning big player fantasies over sparse beats. He and co-conspirator Scholarwise go back and forth spitting rhyming non-sequiturs. The names of clothing brands, mathematical formulas, and general tough guy talk all find their way into their verses. On "Special Efx" featuring Godfather Don, and "Strip Club Bait," in which the dialing of a cellular phone forms the basis of the beat, this weird amalgamation works. On others, Scaramanga just loses himself in his own nonsensical fantasies.
