AllMusic Review by

Florida-born but repping H-Town, Devin the Dude has garnered accolades and admiration from diverse corners of the hip-hop world -- from Dr. Dre to Scarface to DJ Hi-Tek -- for his unique brand of smoothed-out Dirty South funk. On his fourth solo long-player, Waiting to Inhale, Devin continues to do his thing, with that same molasses-thick production full of tight piano and synthesizer-heavy samples, as well as his trademark comically perverse lyrics. The subject matter hasn't changed at all as the Dude once again produces a potent, sex-obsessed, smoke-filled, liquor-drenched masterpiece. Among others, Snoop, André 3000, and Devin's crew the Odd Squad make guest appearances.
