Consumer Guide Reviews:

To tha X-Treme [Rap-a-Lot, 2004]
Languid Houston rapper makes love and jokes out of how hard meaning no harm can be ("Briarpatch," "What?"). ***

Landing Gear [Razor & Tie, 2008]
"I Can't Make It Home" Choice Cuts

Suite 420 [E1 Music, 2010]
The weed rhymes he takes himself, the sex rhymes he farms out, which in the Dirty South is a sign of truly delicate sensibility ("All You Need," "Ultimate High," "Twitta"). *
