Master Of Ceremonies
Label: eOne Music
Styles P's Master of Ceremonies is an exercise in block hustling and paranoid thoughts. Once you get past a few would-be radio hits (Pharrell's "Don't Turn Away"), the Yonkers artist delivers some compelling raps. "I'm a Gee," "Ryde on Da Regular" and "Feelings Gone" expand on his gangsta persona and how "selling crack will have you running like a track meet." It's familiar to anyone who has heard Styles, but he makes it sound fresh here with help from D-Block collaborators Jadakiss and Sheek Louch, and guests like Rick Ross and Pharoahe Monch.
