The album is tight overall. But the song with Rakim was butt. The 9th Wonder produced joint was fu*king sabatoge. That's got to be the weakest 9th Wonder beat I've ever heard. And dude on that hook was fu*kin terrible. Besides that it's good music on there. That "Help" joint is fire to me.

3.8 outta 5 maybe pushin 4 outta 5.

im givin 4 and im still wonderin if its better than hunger for more.

two different albums beats talkin.
but i dont know id rather chill with the rotten apple beats.


help is surely a tigh joint and same for make a move
i think i like all the songs

listened to it 3 times fully
im gonna buy it cuz i feel this album.


pz

Yeah, I think Lloyd Banks was kinda aiming for more maturity with this joint. I mean look at the album cover. Looks like he trying to be on some Grown man sh*t. I don't know if that'll sell though...

1. "Rotten Apple" (3.5/5) I really like the beat on this one, Banks verse was boring, 50's really wasn't half bad, actually u know what.. it was a nice verse, prodigy fu*kin blows now tho.. i mean i wanna cry... that was an embarrassment to every fan who supported them since 93... i mean damn when u get out rap'd by 50 cent, i mean damn....take out p and its a solid 4
2. "Survival" 9 (2/5) beat is kinda cool, but its really nothing special... the hook is retardid... banks isn't saying anything, hes just raping like its a freestyle... you'd think 50 would have helped banks like he said he helped the game.. hmmm....another grasshoper punchline... whats that 6 now?
3. "Playboy 2" (1/5)another stupid hook, the beat is akward sounds like something jedi mind tricks would rap over... and i like JMT alot, but thats not a banks beat... who the hell aproved this... hes barely even catching the beat on the first verse... this is just a bad song...figures the original 'playboy' was the worst banks song i ever heard
4. "Cake" (2.5/5)the beat is cool, i dunno, he at least has some energy in the first verse, at least it feels like hes used a second flow finally... 50's verse again, not horrible... he started out good ended pretty weak, the bridge and banks third verse is corny...
5. "Make A Move" (2.5/5) again another beat thats not bad, but doesn't fit banks at all.. hook is corny... sorry, thats just corny... i like his flow on the first verse, hes still not saying anything at all tho, i'm not saying hes gotta be canibus, but itd be nice if he could pick a topic and stick to it.. instead of just freestylin lines that rhyme... but as far as his flow/punches go they were the best so far...so maybe the beat is more banks than i thought...but still i dunno if i heard this instrumental... i wouldn't have thought banks, i dunno
6 "Hands Up" (3.5/5) Another questionable hook.. might have been better without the adlibs, banks freestyle flow fits the single, no beef there... this is where the sh*t talking belongs... beat wasn't that great its just the busta beat from way back flipped... at least the drum pattern... and the little voice is completely out of place...
7. "Help"(5/5)... now this is a nice song, its not hard, its actually a nice radio song really, i think this should be the next single... but i honestly think hes gonna go with something hard so they can use the 'album was too hard' excuse when it doesn't sell sh*t... he'd actually sell a few more records tho if he put this out... the beat is nice... i really like the strings in the background.. and banks at least has a point to this... good song.. and its easily the best hook on the album so far
8. "Addicted" (1/5) musiq's hook is alright at best, the flow is wrong, all wrong... he coulda done this better, waaaaay better, he blew this song, beat is wack, sounds like something off a myspace page the orignal producer didn't finish... by the end of this song your just like wtf? this song sucks...
9. "You Know The Deal"(2.5/5) first verse was weak, second is way better, well it starts really nice... but he tails off talkin about his jewelry using animal references... banks part of the hook is dumb, he shoudla just left rakim go on the hook, tht sh*ts hot... the beat is pretty cool... third verse started weak, but he picked it up towards the end...
10. "Get Clapped"(2.5/5) beat is alright, i'm guessing alchemist here.. sounds like his style... havoc singing on a hook?? OMG i'm still in shock... banks verse is nice... yeah pretty good verse from banks, this hook ruins the song tho.. absolutely ruins it, p is a joke PERIOD... he can't rap anymore i've heard drunk white kids at 4am all sniffed on powder, rap on beat more than him... no havoc verse?? another nice verse from banks tho.. so basiclly mobb deep fu*ked up a good banks song.. he got a bonus .5 since 50 prolly forced the collab
11. 'Stranger', (1/5)banks really sucks at hooks, the whole half singing/half rapping for your hook got old after song 2, were on song 12 now... first verse is pretty forgetable, so are the next two.. as is the beat...
12 'Change' (2.5/5)beat is crap, that sh*t is waaaack, first verse is too slow, hes got no energy, its hard to get into the song, second verse was nice tho.. i liked it...third verse, i dunno he had some hot lines but also some really weak ones.. he still is just freestyling tho, no concept no topic nothing
13 'NY,NY' (2.5/5)i liked the first two bars of the hook, i thought i was gonna like it...but its all down hill from there... i like the beat but again it feels like he coulda have used a different flow and done better... i really don't think anyone likes banks trying to half sing why does he keep doing it?? Yayo got what 8 bars?? and they were comical at best...this song should have been better....
14 'One Night Stand' (4/5)i feel like i've heard the beat 20 times before, hook is cookie cutter, even with that said, i still like it... he at least used the right flow here...this isnt a bad song at all... verses are pretty solid... BUT the only thing i don't understand, other than the hook... theres nothing in the song about a one night stand really... should have been a third verse instead of the singing and banks adlbs... After further discussion this rating was lowered to a 2/5
15 'Iceman' (4/5) the beat is simple, but it is catchy, reminds me of a beat off the old Mac shell shocked... banks verse is wack, buck's could have been better it was just average for him, he could have done way better... hook is alright hes at least not half singing, hes just doing the token south hook... 8balls verse was pretty good, BUT scarface's flow is nasty...he def takes the award for best verse on the album...
16 'Gilmore's' (3.5/5)ahhh his hooks are fu*king gay... why does he keep tryin to sing? i like the flow, again no concept but this is kinda a rip it up beat, so that doesn't bother me much here, this is where he gets

16 tracks X 5 = 80 possible points
Bonus Points
+1 For a Good Concept To An Album, 'Rotten Apple' was a brilliant idea

TOTAL SCORE
42.5/80

i do not have a producer list for this anyone got one yet?

thatd be cool if there was anything in the album regarding growing up/maturing

its just freestyles over new beats with gay hooks

"BUT scarface's flow is nasty...he def takes the award for best verse on the album..."

Yo...I like Scarface, but he had the worst flow on the whole fu*kin song. HE threw the sh*t off. What's wrong with you? What are you listening for?

"One Night Stand' (4/5) this isnt a bad song at all" Yo that sh*t was the worst song on the album. The beat is lazy, the flow is lazy, the lyrics were lazy, THE CHORUS WAS TERRIBLE.

What are you hearin? I wouldn't listen to you're critique if I was someone who hadn't heard it, cause from the looks of it you like wack sh*t. The only song I agree with you on is "Help". I guess that joint is just undeniable.

HELL NO...plus you said "he shoudla just left rakim go on the hook, the sh*ts hot... the beat is pretty cool"

Mannnnnnnn...that sh*t was wack too. Rakim ON A HOOK??? Where's his verse at?? That sh*t was a waste of time and space. He could've replaced that with something from "The Big Withdrawal". But I'll give him propz just cause he tried to keep it fresh.

u misunderstood what i meant, i meant banks shouldn't have rap'd on the hook 2, it should have just been rakim.. he managed to fu*k up rakim's hook.... lol

a rakim verse > banks career IMO

i disagree but not enough to argue about it.. so maybe i'm starting to lean your way on that one... but one night stand i just listened agian... and yes the hook is wack, the beat is weak, but banks flow actually matches the beat, and thats more than i can say for 5 or 6 other songs, and thats why i gave that song a lil dap... but u act like i gave it a sterling review or something... i like how u just take excepts out and criticze instead of the whole thought...

Naw, it would seem that you would use that same logic for hotter songs but you didn't. So that just let's me know your taste in music. I mean you said it yourself "but one night stand i just listened agian... and yes the hook is wack, the beat is weak, but banks flow actually matches the beat"

If his flow matches with everything else that's WEAK/WACK then wouldn't that make it a WACK song, but instead you gave 4/5

ima give this jawn a 3.5 or 4/5, due to tracks like "Ice Man" etcccc....he be on some STUPID sh*t on those tracks

1st album could be considered somewhat a CLASSIC!!!

but this release is nothing but AVERAGE........but i liked how Banks kept it GUTTER,

most dudes would have SOLD-OUT if they got money like "HIM"

i changed it... your right... i was inconsistent with that song i penalized other songs for sh*t he did in that song and i didn't penalize that song...

i was incorrect in my original thinking... i'll admit to my mistake

but i stand behind my review... i don't like most of those songs, the beats should have been better and 50 needs to teach banks so the sh*t he supposedly taught game

tracks like "Addicted", "Help", "Survival", "You Know The Deal", "make a move" and "playboy 2" are ALL decent/hot tracks.

They definitley kept this album from flopping

This album is average at best. There are a few tracks that will keep your head bobbing but it feels unenergetic and bland. even tho banks has no energy you could atleast feel the hunger for more
