Summary: Rakaa Is Smooth As Silk
Comment: Rakaa has done it with his beautiful melodic delivery. He's a rapper with a sound that's strong and rich with meaning. The beat is bumpin' and his articulation is sensual and quite pulsating. This is a man with presence, and a voice that says, listen up. I did not miss Evidence on this one. Go Rakaa. You're pure silk.

Summary: Good Stuff
Comment: This is some good shit. I have to say Rakaa is a little better solo than Evidence. I wanna see a solo album. The beat's alright, nothing spectacular.

Summary: First Single
Comment: Finally a dope producer from my hometown (Seattle, WA.)is doing his thing. This track is banging no doubt. Personally this track should of been Dilated's first single to their next album. I would like to see a video for this, but not like the "Worst Comes To Worst" video. The way Rakaa describes the three scenarios is very visual. We all can relate to each in some way or form. I've been down with Dilated since "The Platform". From 1999 to now they never fail to deliver. Like DJ Premier said "You ain't a real DJ if you don't got a least two Duck Seasons"!

Summary: Lets Go...
Comment: One of the illest beats I've ever heard...When I heard this on the Duck season 2 album, went and got it right away just for this one track...Rakaa needs to do a solo joint...for real.

Summary: This Sh*t Is Classic!
Comment: I've always been a Dilated fan so when I heard this I flipped! The beat is killin em' and Rakaa always come correct with the lyrics.

Comment: Rakaa (from Dilated Peoples) comes up with this solo offering. Jake One uses some hot horns and a bluesy female vocal to form the backdrop for Iriscience to tell some stories of good people making some bad choices. As always, his style is solid. It does seem a little weird without Evidence lending a verse, but is still a strong track.

Summary: Rakaa Wit No Monotone Evidence To Slow Him Down...yes!!!
Comment: He needed a solo showcase. His delivery has gotten so much better than Evidence. Evidence sounds like that boring cat for J5 that rhymes like Herman Munster.

Rakaa is nice, and its about time he caught some shine on tha dolo over a hot sample. It kinda sounds like "The Masquerade Is Over" sample, I think it is that. Anyway, More of this!!!
lets go.
