iTunes Review

When they first emerged from the Chi-town underground, Kidz In the Hall were embraced for Double O's classic-minded production and Naledge's not-too-bougie, not-too-thugged-out wordplay. Following their impressive debut, they signed with Duck Down Records for a follow-up, and ramped up their collegiate/Kanye-esque image, complete with far too much self-assuredness and the requisite uniform of sweaters, tight pants, and goofy shades.

Ironically, the songs that come off the best ("Cleveland Freestyle," "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous," "It Is What It Is"), are amongst the few without guest rappers.
