In all honesty, before I read TC’s review, I was unaware that Mack 10 even released an album this year. Considering my affinity for Westside Connection and all of its members, I found this troubling. Especially since his record label is also home to two of the most prominent figures in Hip-Hop today in Lil’ Wayne and Drake.
While I have yet to soak in the entire project, the Dow Jones produced “Hoo-Bangin’ II” has definitely sparked my interest and moved it up a few spots in my queue. The LA native finds himself teaming up with newcomer and label-mate Glasses Malone to spit some West Coast game for the uninitiated. Dao provides him with the same combination of smooth bass, well-placed piano keys and slick drums that you would expect out of one half of Tha Bizness.
