But the story gets a tad bit darker. If you're into that kind of thing.

Review: Juicy J's "Rubba Band Business: The Album" — Not Mixtape Equivalent But Solid

A dynamite trilogy can be hard to pull off.

Review: Statik Selektah's "8" Relies On 36 Features & 1 Boom-Bap Sound

The C.R.E.A.M. motto is alive and well.

Review: Fabolous & Jadakiss' "Friday On Elm Street" Is Frighteningly Muddled

Jadakiss and Fabolous may be certified NYC rap royalty, and the album certainly reaffirms their rapping ability, but the broader Freddy vs. Jason theme is never really defined or explored.

Simply put, "Father Figure 2: Flourish" is a great album made by an artist that is just getting started.
