Album Review

Brothers From Another, the second Young Gunz album, often feels like it's as much of a mixtape as Get in Where You Fit In, an actual mixtape released by Young Chris and Neef during the tail end of 2004. Production-wise, it's all over the place, so it's rarely boring, if occasionally aimless. In the wake of Tough Luv's softer moments, such as the major hit "No Better Love," it's obvious that the duo want to come off harder, perhaps wanting to avoid Cassidy syndrome. (For some longtime rap fans, Tough Luv might've also sparked flashbacks of 2nd II None and Nice & Smooth, two other duos with sounds as smooth as their images.) The more serious and even sobering tracks, often packing aggression and a little menace, stand out most; "Beef," "It's the Life," and "We Still Here" show how Young Gunz have grown in a short amount of time. And all three come during the latter half of the album, the point where Tough Luv lagged and lacked. On these tracks, they sound convincingly hungry and desperate, not afraid to break a sweat. The first half also has its moments. "Set It Off" — adrenalized deep throbs and handclaps delivered by Swizz Beatz — and "Same S**t Different Day" — disorienting deep throbs and handclaps delivered by Chad Hamilton — are two of the album's best productions, though a few others deserve mention. Just to make sure the fans gained by "No Better Love" won't be lost, a dash of softer songs round out the bangers. "Grown Man, Pt. 2," featuring Kanye West and John Legend, is in the expected soul-dipped territory; on the other side, "Don't Keep Me Waiting" and "The Way It Goes" are two slightly jarring shots at exhuming the trebly side of mid-'80s R&B. Expect Young Gunz to command a greater amount of respect. They're no longer a singles group.

Customer Reviews

Brothers From Another-Young Gunz

Back after a successful Tough Luv that reached gold status, the Gunnaz are back. The Knock Is There: Average opener, production was decent, hook wasn't too good. 3/5 Set It Off: Swizzy's bass filled production with claps is perfect as the Gunnaz spit it smooth and flow nicely on this street banger. 4/5 Don't Keep Me Waiting (Come Back Soon): Chad Wes' uptempo feel good vibe is nice as Slim of 112 helps on the hook. Real nice summer cut. 4/5 Tonight: West coast party track here, Daz adds some Cali flavor. 3.5/5 Don't Stop (YG Party): House party track, the Gunnaz sounds good on this. 3.5/5 Same S*** Different Day: Production get's a little tiresome, lyrically it isn't bad. 3/5 Grown Man Pt. 2: Much better than the previous, Kanye and John Legend make this a smooth track. 4/5 Beef: Gunnaz spit fire on this track and it's a banga. 4/5 It's The Life: Nice description of hood life, it is more mellow and sad. 3.5/5 The Way It Goes: Relaxing production, the Gunnaz explain relationships and the hardships that go along. 3.5/5 What We Gotta Do: Feel good production, Gunnaz shine, as they talk about how tough it is to continue with friends being lost. 4/5 We Still Here: Finishes the album with a bang, Bleek joins the party. 3.5/5 Gunnaz second album is a lot more focused at 12 cuts, they go with a tougher feel compared to the party fun Tough Luv. "Set It Off" is a banger along with "Beef". "Tonight" and "Don't Stop (YG Party)" are party cuts with the soulful summer cut "Don't Keep Me Waiting", which balance out the album. Solid sophomore album. Rating 7.5 out of 10

Pretty Cool

The beats are awesome. The lyrics are so so. But luckily the production makes up for that.

Biography

Formed: Philadelphia, PA

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Young Gunz began as just two of the numerous rappers in Roc-a-Fella's State Property collective, yet all it took was one runaway hit, "Can't Stop, Won't Stop," to distance them from the pack and elevate them into the spotlight. The Philadelphia duo -- Young Chris (born Chris Ries) and Neef (born Hanif Muhammad) -- debuted with brief appearances on the first State Property album (2001) and, more importantly, got a high-profile shoutout in Jay-Z's "Takeover" earlier that year. However, it was their...
