Early Wayne is consistently decent. All 3 pre-Carter projects are comparable in quality, and this one is likely the best one, even if it's the most inconsistent. Wayne's rapping has definitely improved, but the rest of the LP is kind of mediocre. All the good songs were placed around the middle and end, leaving almost none in the beginning. Gangsta And Pimps carries the first leg of this album in my opinion. This wasn't a very hot album, it was actually lukewarm, and it needs more salt 🧂🔥
I'm on a journey to finish Wayne's discography. I've become such a giant Wayne fan in the last 4 years, I figured it's time to finally hear the projects I ignored hearing for the longest time. There is a lot of baller talk but it's rarely varied. Rims, Cash, Guns, etc is something 04 Wayne did wayyy better. The production is average except for one or two tracks.

Weezy heard whoever started the saying that artists' debut album are generally their best and fuckin shoved the saying right back up that guy's ass. Wayne has gotten significantly better lyrically on every project up to this point, and the difference between this and his debut with The Hot Boys is astonishing. This is overall a good album, although it is brought down by some lackluster choruses and just decent features.
