Album Review

Some consider JR Writer to be the lyrical wonder of the Diplomats crew, and there's plenty of evidence why on History in the Making, an album overstuffed in the usual Dipset fashion but ultimately a rewarding effort. Sounding much like his mentor Cam'ron, Writer opens the album with the hypnotic and hungry anthem "To Be a Diplomat," a quick run through the man's past with that freestyle freedom he perfected during his mixtape and rap battle past. "Grill Em," "Byrd Call," and "That's a Bet" with Paul Wall are the club cuts and highlights, keeping the album from sounding like a volume of the man's Writer's Block mixtape series. The "Moments in Love"-sampling bedroom cut "Xtasy" has chart ambition, too, but most of the album is street level and Dipset chaotic, something best represented by the word-filled wonder "Zoolander." While it may not be worthy of such an ambitious title, History in the Making brings Writer from the background to the foreground in the world of Dipset and gives every reason why he deserves it.

Garbage!!!!

How can anyone give this 5 stars?!?!? Illmatic, All Eyez on me, Ready to Die, Life after death, Enter the 36 Chambers, It was written, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, Reasonable Doubt...Etc, Those are 5 star albums! not this trash that's polluting the airwaves nowadays. It's all the same, no creativity, no originality...This kid sounds like a mini-cam... P.S. These east coast rappers need to stop tryin to rap with these down south beats and come up with their own style. They sound wack doin it.

NY Hip Hop was just shot in the head!

Okay...JR pulls off a line or two hear and there..but I can't get over the fact the whole "DIp Set" sound like Cam with his voice either sped up or slowed down...They all use the same flow that's not that hot to begin with. What other crew does this?!!??

Good

I like it...lots of good releases this week.
