I fucking love this album. Too me is a banger. Cap did a good job. And to me the people who say is garbage have not really heard it.Take a good listen man.

8/10

actually i must say this album is an eye opener... after two lyrically whack ((pillage.. and yin yang)) and one production whack album ((yin yang))...cap came back and actually deliver some wu worthy material.. i slept on this album when it first dropped..cause i figured it was another half assed attempt for cappa to take my ten bucks so i disregarded it.. but i'd say almost a year later. ..they just happen to have a music listneing station at a store i was in.. and i was checkin out some albums.and i saw ..the struggle..so i peeped it.. and i was a bit more impressed than i though i'd be from the snippets.. but when i heard "pain is love" i was blown away.. he killed that verse and by the time i realized it ..the album was out of print and i couldnt find it for a reasonable price anywhere ((in this day and age im not paying more than ten bucks for an album..)).. nor could i find it online for dowload free.. so i got it earlier this year finally from a music pay site and i listened to it in whole.. and its the type of stuff he should have been releasing from the get go.. i mean it wasnt perfect.. but it was dope in comparison to what cappa been givin us since '98

keep it up donna!!!!

Some raw bangas on here like~

Role of a Lifetime feat. Solomon Childs
Blood Brothers feat. Lounge Mode
Get Away From the Door feat. Inspectah Deck
Season of da Vick feat. Lounge Mode
Killa Killa Hill feat. Raekwon
Power to the Peso

~

But not as good as his 2 previous efforts in my view.

~

Yet this perfectly titled Album has a "Hidden Gem" in the form of ~

Struggle With This feat. King Just

I swear this is why I love Wu-Tang and the whole~
overexperiencedness
(not sure if that^ is even a word)
That they bring and the flames on the mic.

Cappadonna really spits his heart out on the last track and King Just does to Cappa what Cappa done to everyone on "Winter Wars".
He absolutly rips the shit out of the beat and Cappa!
His verse is so good I am gonna have to put it up:


King Just~

"I'm rarely seen, cuz I'm out, chasin' my dreams
Microphone fiend, way before I was a teen
Mitch Green niggaz all get punched in they eye
Challengin' the champ, like I won't take their pride
Or kick they hide, from here to the Westside
Tell you rest in the flesh, even the best done tried
Comply, or you'll be assassinated
I'm dated and faded, download it and save it
I made it, easier for the media
So you could understand me, without the slang Enclyopedia
Stay weeded up, like the kettel gettin' headed up
Talkin' bout the kid, but I already beat it up
In the cut, like peroxide, or iodine
Optimus shine, here to decline your slot time
Rock rhymes on point like a porcupine
And if my ass get left back, I'mma catch up/Ketchup like Heines
And define definition of an M.C
Tempt me, I ain't got a lot to give, I got plenty
Since you went from 103 to 104
Them dumb ass broads talkin' 'bout them more and more
From shore to shore, I laid down my law
And walk my Adidas on Colleseum floors
Score like Fugee, Rhyme & Reason first movie
I ain't gon' rest til I see Flex black a tooly
One bad mooly, who lost his cool-io
With this Julie ho, gettin' brains in the studio
Figadoh! Return of the phantom of the opera
Pop a collar, pop it for Mr. Popular
I could see through binoculars that you've been watchin' us
Your best bet is to get your money set and start coppin' us
Before the deeds knock us, and push petal charges
And fall off the face of the earth like slaughtered Sergeant
Come on ya'll Struggle With This....."

Who the hell vote this for a classic! haha, this is faaaaar from a classic joint. It's okay but Cappa stumbles to much on his wordplay here, his flow has fallen the fuck off. Compare this to anything he did pre-97... Decent album though, about half of it are bangers.

Really?? I thought that was probably the wackest song on the whole shit?? "Struggle with me", "Cap is Back" and "Roll of A Lifetime" is nice. Whatever happened to solomon's child (he had another name back in the day, what was it? i forgot)
