The music – spacey and bouncy – is classic Puba, but why is he trying to rhyme jiggy style? His flow was one of the most distinctive in hip-hop and all of the sudden, he’s trying to bite some gun clap flow sh*t from his lesser NY brethren. On the flipside, this is clearly a club cut so maybe he’s not looking to blaze the mental but there are practically no notable quotables. Worth a listen, but take with reservation. - O-Dub

I like this record a lot - despite that Puba is trying to move the crowd with “Up & Down”, I don’t think he’s slipping because he has accomplished his goal, without sacrificing the overall sound of the music. By no means is he trying to churn out a carbon copy of Swizz Beatz, Neptunes, Puff Daddy, or whatever the sound of the time is, he’s just spitting some easy lyrics over fun production. Still, while not lyrically complex, if I’m trying to get a crowd’s attention with some honest hip-hop, I don’t want them trying to break down the complexity of the lyrics anyway - I’ll look to the album for that. – Pizzo
