Album Review

Technically, Philly's Most Wanted is comprised of rappers Mr. Man and Boo-Bonic, but the real star of the show are the Neptunes, the hot production team that has worked with everyone from Jay-Z to Mystikal to Britney Spears. Their trademark sound is felt throughout Get Down or Lay Down, and the slick style works best on their single "Cross the Border," which mixes slick rhythms with a splash of Latin guitar and horns. Although this is far from their best work, the Neptunes provide enough danceable hip-hop to get the job done. The same can't be said about Mr. Man and Boo-Bonic, who fail to bring anything to the table. Their rhymes are utterly pedestrian, rhyming about the usual thug scenarios without a hint of originality. The duo better hope that the Neptunes are willing to work with them again, because, without their musical wizardry, Philly's Most Wanted may never be heard from again.

Customer Reviews

Phillys answer to The Clipse ?

I remember when I first got this album, try dream car and cross the border. Its a bit different pretty descriptive and idealising the gangsta life, some good skits in the album. Worth a buy there is a lot worse available just now !

Biography

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Years Active: '00s

Helmed by the Neptunes just as the production duo had begun overtaking the entire rap industry, Philly's Most Wanted's debut album, Get Down or Lay Down (2001), made a huge, albeit momentary, impact upon its release. Comprised of Mr. Man and Boo-Bonic, the duo didn't have many credentials at the time, so the Neptunes affiliation helped them garner national radio support for "Cross the Border"...
