Album Review

Like his fellow Three 6 Mafia member Juicy J, rapper/producer DJ Paul gets back to solo career just about every seven years. Even so, his 2009 effort Scale-A-Ton picks up right where 2002's Underground 16 left off, returning Paul to his horror-show vision of Memphis rap and ignoring the more polished sound Three 6 had been pursuing. That's great news for old-school fans, the kind who will also appreciate the return of Paul's brother Lord Infamous, who lands on eight of the tracks here.

A bit overstuffed at 20 tracks, but anyone looking for the Three 6/Hypnotize Minds sound at its most primal will be well served by this sour brute of an album.
