    Man, I wasn't even aware that Xzibit, B Real and Demrick formed a group.

    That album really came and went, huh?
    There were some good tracks on that project ("Triggered" might be my favourite) but overall I don't really go back to it that much.

    Some of the beats that they used also sound like beats straight off youtube. In other words: ...just okay.

    I prefer their last EP over this.

    Didn't see it. Must be on page 20 or some s--- considering the album came out in october.

    The video came out yesterday so I guess it's kind of news.

    This album was terrible. Bunch of old men bitching about COVID and wearing masks. I expected better than this, and X needs to go solo

    Few things...
    1. There's already a thread but it died about 2 days after this dropped
    2. This is their second release (first full LP), they've been a group for ages!
    3. I kinda liked it. Sonically pleasing and I LOVED hearing how much mic presence X still has. Subject matter was too much for an entire project but I respect their hustle.
    4. X and B-Real combination is as elegant as Dre/Nate Dogg or Snoop/Nate. It's great. Demrick doesn't fit for anything other than a feature.
    5. Haven't checked the video for SOS that dropped a day or so ago yet. I will.
    6. X is on a mission right now. Restless 20 year anniversary this Friday I think? I released tracks coming including a Loks track. He's also working on a solo (can't remember the names something about "king"?)

    Either way, I enjoyed this for whatnot was. But ultimately the subject matter severely reduced the reply value.

    1) There being already a thread doesn't really matter. When was that thread, 2 months ago? But again, my bad if this is a repost. At least the video is new.

    2) How many Eminem threads do you think get made multiple times yet people still post in them?

    3) Why are you replying like I was talking to you?

    4) The Em thing was a joke.

    It would have been fine if it also sounded a--- but this summer of sam song sounds dope as f--- and X rapping is really dope. Just a shame it was a lame song content wise

    agreed w all this - demrick isn’t rly the same league as b real and x. And @Tonshor whats ur deal man , reup the old thread make a new one but no need to shame ppl for not following a dusty (albeit cool) project like this breathlessly in 2020...... “you guys are too busy obsessing over eminem you missed the latest from xzibit” ?

    Why the hostility man?? I was making a few points, mostly around my thoughts of the album. I was trying to carry on some conversation of this project not other BS.

    Fair enough. I felt like your 2 first points were taking shots..

    I wasn't a big fan of the album and I must agree that the lyrics can make you go wtf. Not into this Covid thing.

    Just finished listening to their first project Serial Killers Vol. 1 and some of the tracks on there are pretty d--- good.
