Album Review

The lazy-mouthed co-CEO and co-founder of the Diplomats empire had some serious momentum rolling before he released this one. Besides the ever-growing Dipset fanbase there was "We Fly High," Jim Jones' highest-charting single to date and the unofficial theme song of the New York Giants' defensive line. Team members would imitate the jump shot move from the song's video every time they executed an especially brutal sack or tackle, and the crowd would respond with the song's "Baaaaaallllllin!" catch phrase. Hustler's P.O.M.E. (Product of My Environment) doesn't squander the buildup and offers great single number two, "Reppin' Time," which already makes the album twice as powerful as Jones' previous full-lengths. He's an iffy lyricist who can drop a witty line and then spin his wheels for a verse, so P.O.M.E. plays to his strengths and surrounds him with flash. Add "Pin the Tail," "Get It Poppin'," "My Life," and "Weatherman" with Lil Wayne to the aforementioned tracks and you've got a hefty bag of hooky club music, something that suits this charismatic baller just fine. Slick production throughout from folks like Chink Santana, the Runners, and Jim Bond makes this one of the more polished efforts in the Dipset universe. A couple soul-searching numbers paint life as a bleak survival game and borrow way too much from 2Pac's style to be taken seriously. If Jones could meet that legend's insight halfway, P.O.M.E. would be a champion. As it is, it's a contender and a serious step up for this scrappy hustler.

P.O.M.E.?

he sure looks like a product of his enviroment whipping rented gallardo's and benching half naked women in front of a mansion. throwing monopoly money all up in the air in his latest video lolol. anyway this album = magnum opus of awful. what did you expect though? honestly. hate to unleash reality to all the people who are on this guy hard, along with the whole dipset, but hes only going to sell about 20,000 records if hes lucky. he bites off " aint nuttin nice " by jay-Z , and 2pac's " Lost Souls " and cant even hold up a fire fly of a light with his lyrics over the original beats. his producers did a horrible job of trying to mask them though, like it wouldnt be noticed. freeky zeeky sounds unbelievably fake on his lil pointless skit. like they dont have him in protective custody. overall, this album is seriously trash comming from a mediocre artist, from a below average group of nobodies. latley, the attempt at ressurecting gangster rap has failed by mostly everyone. dont help make this man get rich off making albums that arent noteworthy. youll be making more of a joke outta yourself, than he's making by releasing albums he thinks are nice off koch records lmfao. hip-hop is seriously boring latley, but my bets are on jay-Z to break out with some admirable. not here
