Beanie Sigel - The Solution

One of the things you either like or hate with Beanie Sigel is that you know what you’re getting when you listen to his albums. You will get one or two pretty good tracks, one or two that sound like filler, and the rest slightly above average thug raps. This was no exception.

The thing is that Beanie has never claimed to be anything else. However, even though other Roc-a-Fella (or former Roc-a-Fella) artists never seemed to have the skills to make this enjoyable, Beanie Sigel seems to know how to put it all together to please his core audience. Although there are plenty of guestspots, few seem to actually add any additional flavor to the recipe. Jay-Z stops by with his typical feature spot and R-Kelly delivers a typical R-Kelly hook. However, they still seem to work with the flow of the album, even the Ozzy Osbourne featured track.

This was nothing special, but if you’re a Beanie Sigel fan you’ll probably like it. If you’re not, this album won’t convert you.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.
