AllMusic Review by

As the title suggests, The Nutt Factor Project is mostly a posse record, with T-Nutty holding court above it all, but with most of the rhymes being passed around to his friends and relations. The Bay Area rapper/producer's fingerprints are all over this record, especially in his trademark, largely electronic beats, which wriggle and mutate underneath the fiery, explosive raps in such a way that the listener might find himself tuning out the rhymes just to follow odd noises -- check out the Residents-like low-register synth burble that underpins "I Need My Bread," or the tightly wound electro-clash of "You Don't Know Me." Not that the rhymes are without their charms, but as on most posse albums there's a certain level of unevenness here, little-known MCs like Young Bop, whose trademark is a tricky and super-fast flow, and the more aggressive Sav Sicc have showcase tracks that make a good case for them as young voices on the rise.
