Soul Survivor 2 was very disappointing. Soul Survivor is tight but he could've left off the songs Take Your Time with Loose Ends, Soul Survivor with Miss Jones, the last song on the album with Heavy D and Beenie Man.

The Game song is on Soul Survivor album and that song has Raekwon, Prodigy, Ghostface. Ghostface's lyrics crack me up on that song. My favorite song on the album is Tru Master with Inspectah Deck and Kurupt.

Soul Survivor is almost classic, the onyl weak track is ironically the title track. One Life To Live is one of my all time favourite songs.

This album is nice as hell, the production is extremely tight throughout the whole LP. and it features a lot of legends on there, don't understand why y'all don't like the title track - that's a beautiful song. can't you handle good r&b vocals when you hear them over a soulfull production??

Anyway the album is 4.5/5 for me..
(love the ODB outro, i laughed hard first times i heard it!!)

yeah its a good album, i can't listen to it the whole way through but individual tracks are dope, 'Half Man, Half Amazin', 'Truly Yours' and especially 'Strange Fruit' (although the beat is a bit of a rip off of 'Actual Facts'). I actually prefer Soul Survivor 2 to this though, so many great beats and rappers (CL Smooth) on that one, and more of a continuous vibe to it.

Got some great songs on this. Good MCs as well. Half Man, Half Amazing and Tru Master are two of my favs.

definitely prefer this over part 2, but in my opinion there were only a few skipper tracks off of 2. sequels are a hit or miss.

CLASSIC. There's no doubt in my mind. And that joint with Loose Ends is chill as Hell...that's some shit you just lay back, close your eyes, and imagine to.
