Hated On Mostly (Edited)
by Crime Mob
Released: Jan 2007
Label: Crunk Incorporate/Bme/Reprise
Little has changed since their self-titled 2004 debut. The tracks (produced by Crime Mob's five members) still have the same clunky crunk rhythms, sparse synth work and giant (and usually shouted) choruses, while the lyrics vacillate between vague and somewhat innocuous gangsta poses ("Shine Cause I Grind" and "Go To War") and bragging club tracks ("Rock Your Hips"). Princess has drastically improved as a rapper, and frequently shows off her dazzling double-time flow. Though there are a few missteps ("Big Boy Pimpin" and "Wuz Up"), the album will satisfy the Mob's crunk base.
