The first hit album released on Sean "Puffy" Combs' Bad Boy label, Craig Mack's Project: Funk da World lacks the hardcore edge of Bad Boy's next breakout artist, the Notorious B.I.G., instead gunning for the dancefloor with a slight hint of street attitude. The beats are laid-back, mid-tempo, and effortlessly funky, influenced by the vibe of Dr. Dre's G-funk sound but not slavishly derivative at all. Mack isn't the most skillful rapper who ever lived, but he's game on most of these tracks, with a low, raspy voice and a loose, casual style that's hard to resist when he's on. When he isn't, he strays a little too far off the beat, or lacks enough variety in his flow and surprises in his rhymes to hold the listener's interest. But he's good enough to work a groove, and sometimes that's all you need for a great dance record. The formula gets repetitive over the course of an entire album, especially on the tracks with too many choruses, but there are some definite high points, most notably the smash "Flava in Ya Ear," "Get Down," and "Funk Wit da Style." There's also a clever sample of the Days of Our Lives theme song on "Real Raw." In the end, Project: Funk da World isn't a bad party record at all, though it's less engaging as a self-contained listen.
Never Gets Old
I just listened to Project Funk the World again. Puff Daddy at his best. Layin down those robotic, futuristic, crazy funky tracks. And Mack is at his most sincopated, verbal style in spades. "Look Ma, No Brains!" This is as good as good as hip-hop gets. An all time classic. You can play the two radio hits--"Get Down" and "Flava in Ya Ear"--over and over again, but even putting them to the side, it's solid from start to finish. Puff goes to heaven because of Biggy and this album. Nuff said.
Flava in ya ear
How can You have the song '"FLAVA IN YA EAR" and not have the video or the "FLAVA IN YA EAR REMIX" video they are CLASSIC videos that you need in your I-tunes library. This was Puff Daddy 1st artist to sign with his BAD BOY RECORDS. So GET THE VIDEOS. I'M READY TO BUY IT.
Project: Funk Da World Accomplished!
This album is nothing but sweet beats, phat rhymes, and witty lyrics! if you are a fan of the hip-hop culture this album Project: Funk Da World is for you. Craig Mack reigns supreme as one of the best Bad Boy artists ever. I rate this album with five stars because with this album you can listen to the whole thing without skipping any song. Cop it!
