Comment: lyrically this son is brilliant and the commanding bassline will catch the listener off guard. I think that casual is brilliant, especially in this track, I mean he not rapping about killing poeple and puffin on blunts yet he stil manages to keep all the rap fans that I know (including me) listening to him. i've got this track at home on 12" and its probably the most listened to 12" I have got, it's also the a track that is garunteed to get a room full of hip-hop fans bouncing. the review at the bottom has completely missed tha point of the entire song and seems to have ben doubting the track just because he dislikes the rapper

Summary: The Last Review Is Completely Off-Base.
Comment: The above review completely misses the point of the song. Besides a knockin' beat that commands the listener's attention, the wordplay-based lyrics are intelligent and complex in both pattern and word choice.

A great example of this is the call-and-response eight-bar chorus, contrary to the above review. The first part, a four-bar call section (is it Hot Or Not / shoot the Shot Ya Got, if Not Get Popped, when thaat nigga Rock the Spot), contains four extrapolations of a three-sylable rhyme scheme. It is answered by a four-bar response (i Got / ta Get doowwwn) which not only inverts the rhyme pattern but also plays on the tense of 'got' and 'get'. This leads the discerning listener to distinguish a far more intricacy than an exhausted Craig Mack chorus; plus there are three to four minutes of verses that are just as complex!

Based on the above review, I would imagine the writer not enjoying the lyrics of artists such as Ghostface Killah, Big L, Jadakiss, Inspectah Deck, Tash, Del the Funky Homosapien, Planet Asia, Pacewon, or Aesop Rock.

Comment: I’ve never been all that fond of Casual, and this track does very little to sway my opinion. For such an energetic cut, it sure is pretty mediocre if not downright lame. The hook, which is reminiscent of an exhausted Craig Mack joint, definitely plays a huge part in my disliking. Casual’s “getting down” is more like “falling down” as he rambles on for a good three to four minutes without saying a thing. Unfortunately, my least-favorite Hiero affiliate fails gain in ranking on this semi-major label (Loud Records) opportunity.
