40 Cal/ Broken Safety 2

Posted by Guy Fawkes

If your into Dipset at all, you know all about 40 Cal, possibly the most talented member of the supergroup. While G-Unit has wasted their time beefing with Game, Joey Crack, Jadakiss, and many others.... Dipset has been quietly becoming the new G-Unit. Along with founding members Jim Jones and Killa Cam, they have found new young talent. 40 Cal, J.R. Writer, Hell Rell and S.A.S. are all examples. Keep your eyes peeled on Dipset, cuz they doin and doin it well. Back to 40, this dude made his name on the battle circuit and now is making his name with the mixtapes and the albums (he just finished up his 4th album). 40 takes his title as a battler and translates it into punchline after punchline, which is amazing at first, but gets repetitive and boring for too long. But 40, unlike Lloyd Banks, can make songs enjoyable. That being said, I enjoyed this album the most.

The Good:

Track # 1- 40 Cals- No intro, and he goes hard the whole fucking way. This song is amazing.

Track # 8- Since You Been Away- This track is real hot... finally some storytelling instead of boasting. Sick ass beat too.

Track # 9- Gettin By- This track is mad crazy. Easily the best off the album, the production job is just sick and 40 just blazes.

Track # 11- Give Me Some Head- It's hard to call this track good but the lines are crazy, even though the chorus is weak.

Track # 12- Close Ur Eyes- This track is soothing, even though it's not great, it's easy to bob your head to.

Track # 17- Chickens In Da Coupe- This track is pretty good, no clue why it was a bonus. But I'd check it.

0-20: Terrible listening experience
21-40: Maybe one good song
41-60: A few good songs
61-80: Half are good songs, half are weak
81-100: Great listening experience, almost all are great songs

I give this album a 75. I'd download it:
