AllMusic Review by

Nadanuf's debut album, Worldwide, is an engaging collection of crossover pop-rap despite a couple of weak moments. Skwert and Phor-One-One are competent rappers, but their primary appeal is their charisma, which helps enliven the group's predictably pop-savvy urban grooves. At their best, such as on "Caravan Ride" or their duet with Kurtis Blow on a cover of his seminal "The Breaks," Nadanuf creates fun, funky hip-hop, and at their worst, they're simply pedestrian, working the same grooves and rhyming the same rhymes as their peers. Still, there are enough moments on Worldwide to suggest that the duo can rise above their weakness and create a thoroughly winning record next time around.
