AllMusic Review by

North Carolina rapper Small World brings his brand of homegrown Dirty South hip-hop to the big stage on his full-length debut, WORLD PREMIERE, released in 2007 on DTP records. Over mid-tempo, head-nodding beats Small World lays down tales of growing up in North Carolina and life on the streets with a hard-bitten delivery and a pace that bends between heavy-lidded slur and agile quickness. But just because Small World is true to his roots doesn't mean WORLD PREMIERE is a lo-fi affair: the production on these tracks is tailor-made for blasting from jeep speakers, striking a tasty balance with Small World's honest, straight-from-the hip delivery.
