Where BlackenedWhite finally saw promise in then-amateur Hodgy Beats, Numbers sees him fall flat on his face. His rhythms are constantly recycled, his style is tired beyond belief, and his lyrics and hooks are often just awful (what the hell is "a herpe at the tip of a slurpee"?). Left Brain is in good form on a few of these tracks, but whatever worthwhile beats he is able to churn out are unfortunately unable to lift off the ground without complementary chemistry from Hodgy.
I thought that this would be the album that MellowHype would come into its own, but that sadly just didn't happen. Even though Hodgy really flows on this tape, the lyrics are still extremely bland and almost pretentious at times. The production is okay, as Left Brain churns out some great beats here and there, but none good enough to save this album from its HORRIBLE hooks. This album is no where near what I was hoping it would be, and if the hooks continue to be as bad as they are I don't know if MellowHype will ever be as good as they could be.
