YOUNG BUCK 'BUCK THE WORLD' ALBUM REVIEW:


 
YOUNG BUCK 'BUCK THE WORLD' Album Review
ALBUM TITLE: Young Buck

LABEL: G-Unit / Interscope

RELEASED: 20th March 2007

TOP TRACKS:  Push Em Back, Buck The World, I Ain't Fuckin' Wit U!, Haters, Lose My Mind

RAPCENTRAL RATING: 3 out of 5 Stars - A Solid Solo Set From Hip Hop's Favourite G-Unit member

 

  Young Buck's follow up to the highly successful "Straight Outta Ca$hville" album is here. Playfully titled "Buck The World", Buck has crafted a solid album.

   The album's opening track "Push Em Back" is a quality opening track, it's a raw track, the production (from Young RJ) is tight and has a street vibe. Bun-B, 8Ball & MJG appear on the second track "Say It To My Face", continueing from the opening tracks raw sound, the beat has an epic sound to it and the guests do well. J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League lend production to "Buss Yo' Head", is basically a do as it says track, Buck stating not to fuck with him, it is still a solid effort.

   For anyone who coped Hi-Tek's album last year will recognize an uncredited Dion appearance on this Hi-Tek produced track, Snoop Dogg and Trick Daddy add to probably the albums best track so far. "Get Buck" covers the crunk side of things, the beat is too loud to hear what Buck's saying, I didn't like this one.

   The albums title track "Buck The World" is by far and away the albums best track, Lyfe Jennings hook is sweet and Buck's verses are decent. It echoes 2Pac's "Fuck The World" for obvious reasons. I doubt you will see a stranger combination than this, Young Buck and Chester Bennington of Linkin Park fame, but what an effective one it is, Bennington's hook complements Buck's top notch verses. The production from DOC & Gramps on this track works well.

   The albums first single "Hold On" is a Dre produced track featuring 50 Cent. Hate or love Fiddy, it seems he got Dre on his side now. The production reeks of Dre and thats never a bad thing it's a good track, but forgettable. If you like crunk "Pocket Full of Paper" will appeal to you, but if you dislike over-produced loud-in your face rhymes, its not for you.

   "Haters" is a fantastic track, Buck's rap is heartfelt and the beat by Vitamin D is tight. This is a highlight of the album. The Dr. Dre produced "U Ain't Goin' Nowhere" shows the ladies man side of Buck, Tupac Shakur's influence on Buck is apparent here and is a enjoyable slow groove track.

   "Money Good" is a crunk track, an uneventful trackfiller. "Puff Puff Pass", besides from the horribly repetitive hook is another solid track, the production is solid and so is Buck's verse. "Clean Up Man" is a poor track in my opinion, the hook though is good, but the production could have been better.

   The southern flavoured track "4 Kings" featuring guest appearences from T.I., Pimp C and Young Jeezy. The production from Jazze Pha is uninspiring and is a waste of the rappers verses. Jazze Pha production is slightly better on the second last track "I Know You Want Me", it's a thugged out joint, on which Buck gives a solid performance.

   The last track "Lose My Mind", the Eminem produced track is a highlight, Buck's tough, unforgiving lyrics are at their best here, as well as Em's production. The bonus track 50 Cent's "Funeral Music" is a diss at Dipset's Cam'ron and I have no idea how it ended up on Buck's joint.

   Overall, this is a solid effort, G-Unit heads will love it, I enjoyed a good five or six of the tracks and a few more we of a good standard. It's not a classic but a solid effort.
