great cd, i love the whole thought behind the album. its exactly how theindustry is now. that "cheatin" song is on some funny r kelly sh*t. overall its a great album. 4/5 they have grown as a unit, but i've been listening to their first cd "the listening" alot and i guess they took a while with this one but i don't think this is better though.

If ya'll analyze the album, You will also be able to recognize the elevation in Pooh's lyric game. We all know that Phonte is gonna do his thing, and that 9th is gonna do his. Pooh has always been the wild-card. He was pretty inconsistent in his flow in the past . But on this sh*t, and on Sleepers too (If yall don't know, You sleep for real) I have been pleasantly surprised. The album is pretty much what I expected from LB. I could talk all day about the album. Ya'll just gotta listen to "All for you" though. By far the most personal track on the album, and best on the album as well.

you know an album is truly a piece of art when it tells a story, or you feel like your getting a listening into the life of the particular rapper.

little brother never fails in that aspect.


buy this album. support real music.

i'm only a few tracks deep so far (been a long day so i just got it...) but i can already feel the album has substance.

g'yeah!

I mean it was called the Minstrel Show but the title didnt match the album. i was expecting to hear some real "concious" sh*t about real issues going on around the world or even in America, but all i got was "dope rhymes dope beats" as Rapper phonte liked to say it. and yes, i do want more. he said "dope rhymes dope beats what more could you want?" well ill tell him i want a messege(sp) their album is talking about the nameless wack emcees that are ruining hip hop and girls and a track about his dad. theres just enough in this album for people to call it concious, like UBN and The Minstrel Show, but these guys are like the minstrels their hating on, arnt they? i guess it was a cool album, like mos def, talib kweli's and common's, but none of those artist are really "concious" and i mean if they are then so if Ludacris and The Game equally, cause theyve said sort of concious things from time to time. now dead prez is concious, bringing new idea's into peoples minds, after 4 listens, The Minstrel Show couldnt even hold a Handle to dead prez-Lets Get Free

5 mics without question..ive never felt an album deserved 5 mics more than this album
imo, phonte is the best emcee out right now..and YusufSaad the cd IS conscious if you really listen, phonte get mad deep its just that he dont come out and say exactly what he's speakin about, but if you really listen you get the picture

4/5

And it's not that geared toward women. Like the one track seems to be making fun of r&b. That sh*t is so fu*king cookie-cutter it's ridiculous. Solid album though. I'd give it a 4.5 if I could. I upped it in the mixed bag section if anyone needs it.
