Album Review

Although the duo tries very hard, there isn't much on Hold It Down, Das EFX's third album, that makes it very different from their previous records. The production is a bit leaner and their delivery is a bit harder, yet that doesn't disguise the fact that the beats aren't as strong as their earlier albums, nor are their raps as exciting and inventive. Nevertheless, there are some strong moments on Hold It Down, and it should please fans of the duo, even if it doesn't appeal to the same large audience that embraced their debut.

COME ON NOW ITUNES WHO DO YOU GUYS GOT WRITTING THESE ALBUM REVIEWS? THIS ALBUM MIGHT NOT HAVE HAD THE SAME COMMERCIAL APPEAL AS DID "DEAD SERIOUS", BUT TO MAKE CLAIMS THAT THE BEATS WERE LEANER AND LYRICS HARDER CAN BE NOTHING BUT FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH. THEY HAVE PRODUCTION FROM DJ PREMIER,SHOWBIZ,PETE ROCK AND EASY MO BEE. ANY TAKERS FIND OUT FOR YOURSELF AND DISREGARD ALBUM REVIEW THIS ALBUM IS FULL OF CHOICE CUTS FOR THOSE THAT KNOW AND IF YOU DONT,NOW YOU'LL KNOW.....

FIIIIRRREE

I agree

Hold it Down

Totally underrated. Real hip hop right here! Can't get off "ready to rock rough rhymes."

While the duo completely rewrote the MC rule book, they themselves were increasingly pegged as a one-dimensional novelty the longer their career progressed, despite watching elements of their style creep into countless rappers' bags of tricks.
