Out of all of the former No Limit soldiers, Fiend has arguably been doing the best (besides Snoop of course) since he left the label.  Shortly after leaving the label, he hit the ground running dropping albums and mixtapes, and working with people such as Little John, David Banner, and Three Six Mafia before many of them became famous.  He had a deal with Ruff Ryders, even appearing on some of thier albums, but that fell through.  Now he’s independent, and his game is as sharp as ever.  This is probably his best post No Limit release.  The production comes mostly from him and Beats By The Pound (Now known as the medicine men) and the few guest appearences are from the artists on his label, mainly Corner Boy P.  The first track is a dope way to open the album, and another track I like is ‘That’s what you want”.  I was hoping to hear some 1998 No Limit style old school flavor, but the production here is slamming and fiend is comming dope as hell as always.  Fiend is one of the south’s illest lyricists and this album is more of what we love from the man.  He may not do a 5th of what he should sell, but he’s still hard as fuck.
