     Although the climate of ‘success’ today is more geared for ex-Terror Squad member, with his simplistic party formula following the direction of “Lean Back,” a cute and cuddly jam, it’s in no way as defining as Triple Seis’ autobiographical debut LP, Time’ll Tell. The Bronx is bleeding a million images when Triple Seis pairs with Big Pun on the opener, “Harsh Reality” produced by Dre Most. To him, the Terror Squad may be no more, but from the first note of this banger, you know this violin-laden drama track for killers only, is your genuine guide to that near-fatal escapade you so enjoy, the original T.S. style. The Caribbean may seem like a paradise, but it sure breeds the most brutal cats when raised out of their environment, especially in NYC. And that’s what you’re to expect from the Puerto Rican/Dominican/Cuban mafia ensemble as Big Pun gathers his breath for a chorus hook faster than that checkered flag can raise: “Harsh realities of life take control/Leaving Jesus Christ to shake my soul/Please tell me what price to pay to make it home/I’m making dough, but not enough to blow – I Don’t Trust A Soul!”

     Triple Seis was featured on Big Pun’s 1997 “Glamour Life” cut off the Capital Punishment classic LP, and then again featured on Fat Joe’s 1998 “Bet Your Man Can’t Do it Like That (Triz)” song from the Don Cartagena LP. But after 1999′s self titled debut album by the Terror Squad and then Big Pun’s untimely passing, his Terror Squad ties with Fat Joe dismantled. On his first single, “Krazy” featuring Latina soul singer Veronica, please head to the bar or strip club, even if you’ll be dancing to an old Madonna-bitten (“Isla Bonita”) hook you didn’t know had you pushing up on your man’s girl. In fact, a few other club recipes such as “Drinks Up” featuring Cuban Link & Beatnuts produced by Psycho Les, “Skully Remix” produced by Just Blaze and “La Shortie” balance well together on the LP with the other reality-driven, gangsta, conscious or story-telling raps Triple Seis all includes to give the listener a needed break from too much one-dimensional boredom. For the hardcore lovers, the thuggish rants are more than gully on “Take That” and “Be About it,” again featuring Cuban Link. And on the title track, it’s definitely a personal letter-like rhyme Seis aims at someone easy to figure out, even though no name is actually mentioned. His flow is so heartfelt, it’s almost like this has been on his chest for years to now release in order for him to breathe easily. This has to be Seis’ strength, casting away any doubts by demonstrating again, this time over the most melodic and mellow track of the album, “Love Put Me,” a style perfect for one to reflect, chill out and simmer down from all the ill-effects of life’s stress. There are many out there facing similar hardships, and Seis makes you feel he’s the right companion while he depicts without a music video, a straight up picturesque lens of struggle.
