I've always been a big fan of MJG, so when he dropped this solo joint back in '97, I snapped it up without hesitation. In my eyes, MJG always had a better flow than his more popular running mate, Eightball. That flow is fairly represented on this album. Of course, since this was released in 1997 -- the dawn of the jiggy era, there are a few lame attempts at major radio hits (That Girl, for example). Those attempts are kept to a minimum though and what's left is a fairly solid, albeit ignored album. Fans of Eighball & MJG probably already know about this joint, but I don't think too many others were really checking for it. There isn't really much more for me to add here. The production, handled exclusively by Mo-Suave-A -- if I'm reading the credits correctly, is distinctly southern on some tracks and universally dope on others. It makes for a good mix and a pretty good listen from on the South's most overlooked rappers.
