Frayser Boy's debut album - released in 2003 - "Gone On That Bay" raised some speculation. By 'bay' many people thought Frayser Boy was from the Bay Area of the west coast (Oakland, San Francisco) but they were wrong. Frayser Boy released the album under Hypnotize Minds back when Three 6 Mafia and company were unknowns. Frayser Boy may not have the astounding lyricism or punchlines of east coast rappers but he has the stellar production of DJ Paul and Juicy J to compensate. Frayser Boy is not a rapper that weaves witty punchlines together, but he is a great story teller akin to Slick Rick. But in the genre of 00's southern gangsta rap, not late 80's-early 90's west coast hip-hop. His clever gangsta stories with the occasional witty punchline are entertaining throughout and pair well with the brilliant production of the Juiceman and Paul. While his debut album is a good effort, it is heavily malnourished in the chorus department. If Frayser Boy took a few songs off the album and upped his severely insufficient choruses, this album could easily be excellent. But, we have to take it for what it is, a great-bordering on-excellent southern gangsta rap album.
