^^ I didn't mean that the other albums were wack, I'm just saying i liked "Immobilarity" most out of the bunch when it came out. They were all good albums but at the time they was released most thought they was dissapointing.

it's a good album just aint on the same level as cuban linx. My favorite joint is 100 rounds he kills that shit. "blow lines like chimes in the kitchen" It's got acouple weak beats like fuck them but it's a solid album so is lex diamond rae never dropped a wack album. cuban linx was like a gift and a curse for his career.

I liked some of the cuts off of this one

Forecast
100 Rounds
The Table

a few more, it wasnt Cuban Linx, but its definately not a shit sandwich
I'm assuming that if Cuban Linx II ever comes out
itll sound something like this, except with Rae's new lazy delivery...

Default Raekwon: Immobilarity

Since OB4CL2 is this year, I figured Id do a review on his slept on sophmore album, which was doomed, since it followed one of the most beloved Hip hop albums of all time.

1) Intro: The asian instrument that they used in he beginning should have played alone, without Rae talking that ‘’This is really based on politics’’ bullshit, Just said nothing like Meth did on Tical. Then the beat that starts at :58 could go in, and Rae could spit a few bars then go into track 2.
6/10 since they ruined it with the talking

2) Yae Yo: The beat is amazing, and the only thing missing is what A lot of these tracks are missing, A Ghost face appearance. Also, It was too short.
8/10

3)Casablanca: If I didn’t know, I would have thought Rza did the beat, but he didn’t. I like the lyrics, and its like Rae was in rare form here.
7/10

4) 100 Rounds: The beat is missing something, Even years ago when I copped this, I always thought this beat could have had more to it. I KNOW, Ghost face. But lyrically, This is one of Raes best on this album
7/10

5) Real life: The hook is repetitive, BUT I like it, It could have been a Wu song if he wasn’t being stingy with the appearances.
8/10

6)Power: Ft American Cream Team, I almost NEVER like crews of most people. They tend to be nothing more than typical local rappers that the person who made it said would put them on if they made it. Hence A.C.T, And with them being the rare guests of this mostly solo album. They kinda ruined this song. The beat is pretty basic too
5/10

7)Skit: The skit was dumb, but most skits are

8)All that I got it you part 2: The fact that he did this is cool, I wont lie. It was pretty tough, but it didn’t do what the original did, It didn’t touch me.
7/10

9) Jury: One of the best Beats on the album, It was begging for either Masta killa or U-god to lace it with Rae, but as I stated before, he didn’t have many people on here. Lyrically one of his best, period. The hook is great as well, it could have got him radio play.
9/10

10) Fuck them: Ft Method Man. This is probably the only true ‘’Wu’’ song on the album. The hook is great, and you can tell the beat took rae back to the classic Rza type era, though Rza didn’t make it. Meths verse is mint as usual
9/10

11) Skit 2: It was moderately funny.

12) Live from NY: This was the first and I think only single of the album, and it deserves it. The beat is amazing, and EASILY could have fit on the purple tape. Lyrically you can tell he was going for radio play.
9/10

13) My favorite Dred: The song was about a minute to short, The looped piano is very Rza like, and Rae laced it nice. I just wish Gza could have been on it.
8/10

14) Friday: I could have done without the beginning talking and shit, But the beat is great, Ghost would have MURKED this joint. But Rae was on point. The sample is nice as well.
9/10

15) The Table: Ft Masta Killa, Easily the best track on the album, My personal favorite. The beat is sad, dark, but emotional. I think that Killa outshined him on this joint though
10/10

16) Sneakers: You have raekwon talking about kicks, but NO GHOSTFACE? What. The beat is cool, and I could have seen Ghost and U-god on this one
7/10 for not having Ghost on it

17)Raw: A beat and a song, That Redman and Method should have had. BUT since they didn’t, This just ended up being the weakest song on the album
4/10

18)Pop shit: This joint is on some Swiss beatz shit, and a lame attempt to get Pop points. I could hear Eve on this, which is NOT a good thing
5/10

19)Heart to Heart: Dirty, Odb, should have been on here. I could hear him going crazy over this, With Cappa. Rae just didn’t sound right on this. And the beat is just ass to me. It almost sounds like he dissing Wu, but Im sure hes not.
5/10

20) Forecast: This beat screamed for Ghost, again, and again…No Ghost. This was and is a skipped song almost each time. But it’s a city shout out song.
6/10

21) Outro: A weak way to end the album, Seriously

Id give this a a c+
