BMG / Airsta / LaFace
our score: 4.5 out of 5.0
of yall should remember the smooth beats and and laid back
style of Goodie Mobs debut Soul Food. Now Goodie
Mob returns with their sophomore effort Still Standing.
The second album from the Atlanta, Georgia quartet comes with
a little more energy and a slightly different style. Overall it
adds a bit more edge to the rapping and a more off-beat style,
while still using laid back samples and guitars. When put together
you cant help bobbin your head.
Soul Food, Still Standing is laced with positive
messages, and calls attention to problems in the hood that need
fixing. This is evident in "Beautiful Skin." This song
tells women they should respect their bodies and their appearance,
because it is hard for men to respect them when it doesnt
appear that they respect themselves.
Mob gets heavy on "Just About Over." This track uses
a heavy metal type chord, giving the song a harder
edge and heavier feel. It isnt fast, but it is deep.
including hits like "They Dont Dance (No Mo)."
The cd also includes bumpin tracks like "Ghetto-ology,"
which has tight off-beat rappin and beats, and "See You When
I See You," which is higher energy and sweet refrains.
