iTunes Review

Brooklyn rapper Maino hit the scene in the early ‘00s, coming with an aggro, hustler-gangster style ideal for listeners and labels looking for the next 50 Cent. He dropped a gang of mixtapes, generated a lot of buzz (especially in New York), and eventually landed a major label deal with Universal, before getting dropped and being picked up by Atlantic. His debut album, Until Tomorrow Comes featuring heavy-hitter guests like Swizz Beatz, T-Pain, and Trey Songz, spawned a few singles, but never really blew up. His EP Unstoppable followed in 2010, setting the stage for this 20-track offering The Art of War. He’s got seemingly limitless verses about prison time, crack dealing, and enemy eliminating — all backed by standard issue beats and catchy R&B hooks. But for what it's worth, he does it well, and sounds a lot more convincing than most. For fans of club-ready felony raps, this is pretty solid, especially tracks like "Maino Nation," "Brooklyn Way," and "It's On Tonight" featuring Snoop.

Dont Get Mad

I see this tarek nigah apparently gettin frustratedd, he isn't professional, HE'S HOOD! Its what rap is missing now.We got to many soft little MCs runnin around that aren't hard at all but spit it all over records, I would rather somebody talk and live it and sell a couple albums, than someone blowup spittin a bunch of trash (Young Money) By that other guys review he obviously is judging by the tv show rather than the music, see for yourself!

To the guy below me

Obviously you have no clue what your talking about, MAINO is from the streets and spent ten years in jail, so for you to give this album 1 star is childish, not only did he slap jenks but he has also slapped yung berg and knocked out lil cease, no matter what he does i still enjoy listening to this album 


Sorry to say, but this album is gaaaaahbage! SAVE YOUR MONEY! I used to have a bit of respect for this guy as an artist, then when i watched the show "World of Jenks" how he slapped Jenk and choked him, it showed me he's just another low life, can't be professional, has to act hard and tough, blah blah.He should have THANKS JENK for putting him out there, not slap and choke him!


Born: Brooklyn, NY

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Years Active: '00s

A favorite on the New York mixtape circuit, Brooklyn rapper Maino, born Jermaine Coleman, grew up in the borough's Bedford-Stuyvesant section in a household with two drug-addicted parents. Lacking parental guidance, Coleman kept to the streets and involved himself in petty crime, which landed him in prison in the early '90s. There he learned to rap so that he could deal with boredom and isolation. In 2003, after about ten years, he was released from prison and wasted no time setting up his new imprint,...
