The One And Only (Edited)
by Lil Wyte
Released: Jun 2007
Label: Asylum/Hypnotized Minds Productions
Rap's foremost trailer-park dramatist teams up with Three 6 Mafia for another dispatch of gothic crunk. "We Ain't Kool" -- with its hypnotically spare drums captioned by a tight, minor key piano loop -- is relentless and fragile, with Wyte shouting perfectly brutal schlock like "I've been thinking of taking you out/ And I'm not talking lunch." The album's themes should be familiar: getting high, stacking dollars, collecting bodies. But unlike most dope boyz, Wyte doesn't care about playing it smooth, offering "I don't give a f*ck" as a mantra of sorts. This is the sound of the South.
