I was a lil upset that Diggz wasn’t apart of the return of Potent Product cause he’s a good dude but I guess things gotta move forward. With that said tho, the music is as POTENT as ever on here.
I rarely if ever listen to compilation type mixtapes anymore but I know Rated R is mixing and I know he’s not about to play some corn ball music. There hasn’t been a proper east coast vibe crack slangin’ mixtape put out in a long ass time…this is it tho.
Car & A Crib AKA A-Mafia sounds as hungry as ever on “Cuffin”. He pretty much patented that Harlem flow by now. I’m fucking with Lloyd Banks on “Superstar” and “Finish Line”. Hunger For More 2 should be more than proper. I’m even impressed with Tony Yayo on “So I Don’t Hurt You”. Alchemist flipped that Mike Jack bass line lovely. You couldn’t have a Potent Product mixtape without Un Pacino and that Hard White music. “Get it In” is as hard as ever. Un got that conversational flow with touch of knife to you throat mixed in, lol. “I Got The Drop” might be one of the better posse cuts of the year, especially on some street shit. La the Darkman shinning on that joint. His “Cold World” joint is classic LAD thru and thru. His one of the most intense MCs on the mic and isn’t afraid to say what the fuck he wants to say. You also no Willie The Kid gotta shine too. One of the best MCs right now using words to his advantage keeping his flow slick as oil. I could rock “Journey” all day. Laid back, lyrical shit that you have to rewind. Cormega, Sadat X, OC and Large Pro on a track? Forgetaboutit. Old head rap never sounded so good. The sleeper track tho? Gotta be Agallah on “Stand clear”. That joint will stab ya brain with your nose bone. I’m trying to fuck with Vado’s music and he has his moments like on “The Blocks”. I don’t see him being NYC savior tho. I think AZ would be wise to do a whole album with Statik Selektah cause “The Calm” got a vibe that we haven’t heard in years. Termanology shinning along side Inspectah Deck too with “Hood On Fire”. With out question a must rewind track if you into your bars like you should. Term’s flow is so precise the shit could cut diamonds.
The easy part is over. Potent Product returns. Now it’s how they follow it up that matters and keep that momentum going. I’d still like to see Diggz get back down tho. FREE DIGGZ! lol
