The second album from this Florida-based rapper hits hard with tough lyrics and popping beats. Rawsrvnt's up-front and gritty rapping style combined with the tough production cranks up a party vibe. Don't be fooled though. Beyond the opening numbers, maturity shows through with "Enough", a picture of the pain of struggling with sin, while "Change" demonstrates Rawsrvnt's subtle rhyming talents. "Aaah Yeah", with its chopped up samples and stabs of tabla, and the driving rhythm of "Yourz Truly" both work to full effect. Soulful contributions from Tony P and rapping from Grav of EOG and Proverb add extra depth to a coming-of-age album.
