|3.0 good||hydeyomoney | March 23rd 10|
I like his lyrics, but this is really boring. Jay's constant aggression is monotonous, and his beat choice is so inconsistent, switching from the best West Coast beats since 2001 to awful 'soul' sampling ("Real Bloods"). Overall, If Jay Rock weren't such a monotonous MC and the beats weren't so crazily inconsistent, this would be utterly amazing. Rather, this is kinda good, but a bit far from great.

This is exactly why Jay Rock is going to save the west, not to mention just how he's gonna save it. Jay Rock weaves the threads of firm street fabrics and the silky wisps of similes to compile a great lyrical effort. From Hood Tales to the Cover of XXL features Jay Rock's most distinctly west coast array of instrumentals yet, and he knocks 'em down. This mixtape is lead by the song "Real Bloods," check them both out. 3.8/5
