This is a nice throwback in Hip Hop. Everything about this mixtape is G-Funk personified. It also showcases a great reunion for Tray Deee and Goldie Loc with Snoop to reform Tha Eastsidaz and recreate some of that old magic.
Snoop shows off his signature flow and voice to instantly take you back to the days of G-Funks first arrival on the Hip Hop scene. Goldie Loc also comes heavy with the vocal tones and imagery, while Tray Deee brings his own style and skills to the table.
The production is straight G-Funk and will have you bobbing your head in no time. Every tracks beat fits with the message of the lyrics, even if sometimes it isn’t totally encapturing for the listener. However with a whole playthrough of the project, it all feels quite cohesive bar the humorous commercial which could be skipped if you just want the music.
The features are sparse but with three people jumping on a majority of tracks, that’s not a bad thing. When someone else does get on a track, they do well and blend well with the rest of the artists they are on the track with.
Overall, This is a good retro project for listeners who miss the days of West Coast projects sounding like they have come straight off the beaches with some shell casings and a grimy attitude.
