Styles P “A Wise Guy and A Wise Guy” Album Review

by Rafeal Crawford

D-Block representative and Ruff Ryder alumni Style P releases his eight studio album before the summer is over. Styles always proclaimed himself as “The World’s Hardest MC” and on this album he stayed true to his roots by bringing street tales from the concrete jungle to your Beats by Dre headphones or iphone earbuds with “A Wise Guy and A Wise Guy”.

On the opening track “Other” he raps about which side your on my side or the other side produced by Vinny Idol this is that classic New York gutter timbs & hoodie Styles P. On the song “Fly” he has a familiar voice and frequent collaborator Tyler Woods on the hook and also recruited a new voice to the rap game female MC Sofi Green, who held her on the track, so be on the lookout for her by the way she was a host on MTV Jams. Tyler Woods shows up again on the album by singing the hook on “If I Should Fly” is melodic boom bap hip hop track about surviving with his nine against the evils of the world

The Ghost keeps the momentum going with “Life Time” to watch out for snakes who are after your money and stated how you never met a n***a like him in your lifetime. “White Ni**z ( You Are Too)” explains how he doesn’t see color, but expresses how a white boy in Hip Hop is a ni**a or a racist white cop is a nigger, but explains that nigger is a behavior not a color I don’t necessarily agree but I get his point of view.

L.O.X fans don’t worry Jadakiss makes a guest appearance on “My Party” and Sheek Louch featured on “I’m A Beast.” Chris Rivers son of the late great Big Pun and Mass Appeals’ Dave East make appearances as well.The production on A Wise Guy and A Wise Guy is was well crafted it seems the producers matched Styles P verse and vocal ability to cater specifically for him definitely cop this album.
