One of Muggs' best in a fucking minute, and that says something, Rigz fucking kills it too. Shit's fire, no skips.

This is good, but it all starts to blend into itself overtime. It feels redundant. The bars and beats are still admirable and noteworthy, but odds are I’m never touching this album again.

Muggs has been one of the best producers in UG hip hop scene but he can be hit or miss at times. However for Rigz, he provided him with a set of finest beats like he did for Rome on 'Death & the Magician'. On this new album, Muggs gave us some straight grimy gutta shit like 'Gold' and 'Every Season' as well as providing us with full soulful gems like 'Where Ya Soul At'.

I'm a few tracks in now and I feel like this is basically a Griselda record. The rappers sound like Conway and Benny and the production sounds similar as well. It might be the overall East Coast sound, but this sounds very similar.

It's pretty good, just not really standout.
