The self-titled album has a soulful vibe meshed with hardcore, metaphoric rhymes. That's certainly evident on the album's first track, "Crack Spot Stories," featuring Raekwon and Jadakiss, and "Guns for Life," with Styles P.

The album hits its peak on "Drivin' Round," featuring Erykah Badu, Masta Killa and GZA. It's a smooth track with each rapper offering a thoughtfully harsh perspective, detailing the state of his or her poverty-stricken neighborhood.

Other enjoyable tracks include "Been Robbed," "All in Together" and "Stella," with Method Man.

It's the rap duo's first album, and hopefully there's more to come.

Check this out: Killah, Louch and Inspectah Deck -- who each hail from New York -- rap about their voyage to other cities and countries from Miami to Paris on "Different Time Zones."
