Thumbs up Trick Trick-The Villian

The Sophmore realese by Detroit Rapper Trick Trick and follow up to "The People vs." which had the notable single "Welcome to Detroit" F/Eminem

This album starts similar to his 1st LP with a intro/skit that like a movie pre-climax scene gets you to anticapating the first song

Trick Trick (the song)-
I find this song to be very hard its a nice beat with a thunderous clap and Trick raps his graspy voice over lashing out at any and everything. But this song is a pounding and a testament to real gangster rap

Unfortunatly this song is followed up by lesser songs that seem slightly the same

U can get ****ed up-
is a okay song but doesnt really hit any high points but trick does imply that if you come to detroit you better ask him for a pass

Who Want It F/Eminem-
For anyone who heard welcome to detroit this will come as a dissapointment. Not because this is a bad song but more that it does not surpass how good there previous effort was. Eminem raps in his seemingly less serious new persona I find his feat on this similar to the one that apeared on T.I. previous album entitled "Touchdown" Both rappers have good versus but a little bit of a letdown

The next two songs again are not bad but no real substance or new vibe to them he does try to put out his crew in both though
Can't **** With My City-
Somethin 4 These Hataz-


Let's Work & Work skit
This song is very similar to Bread on his previous album but he does point out that the real hard workers will always get there money

Hold On Produced by DR. Dre
This album is quite possible one of the greatest Dre beats I've heard it has a slinking strings and a solemn beat Trick rap well on this track but the beat is the best part about this song proving once again Dre is the best producer ever

Let It Fly F/Ice Cube & lil' Jon
This song would of found more success but unfortunatly for Trick the Crunk period has ended but you can definitly get rowdy to this song

All Around The World f/Royce Da 5'9"
This song is a high point and probably the lightest song ont he album Royce and Trick both drop nice versus and anyone waiting for the Eminem & Royce reunion track this is a sign that were one step closer to having one

2getha 4eva F/Proof, Esham & Kid Rock-
This ode to Run DMC is great and a very easy listen very staright forward very good Hip Hop song but the sad part is it will be the last Poof verse we will hear in its original form but all contributors our a testiment to Detroits shine

Follow me produced by Eminem-
This song is a wierd tongue twisting slang song which makes very little since but hay if you figure it out he'll give you 10 grand good luck

Theres three more songs which our more of the same and farley forgetable
MF Pimp-
Get it Crackin-
You Told Me-

Crazy Produced by Eminem
This is a song that is emotionally raw and a good listen over a good Em beat about the betaryel of a woman

Let It Go-
The album closes with a soulful finish featuring Tric tricks family choir

The Album is more of the same but when it comes to detroit gangster rap Trick Trick is pound for pound with the best and has the rep to make it beliavable. But when he went outside the box with songs like "2getha 4 ever and around the world it pays off. Some great producing from trick, Em And Dre as well

4 out of 5 Stars
