All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
It's entirely fitting, considering all the references to ejaculation, that Juelz Santana's solo debut full-length for Roc-a-Fella comes off as premature. Fresh off his filler-stuffed two-disc set with his Dipset Diplomatic Immunity, released just a few months prior, Santana does deliver a small clutch of tracks that could've formed the basis for an outstanding LP. However, there's not enough strong material to make this 70-minute affair a significant one. This comes down to Santana's improving but underdevloped skills as a lyricist and productions that are almost equally inconsistent. "Okay Okay" and "Santana's Town" are two great instances where the eager MC's commanding ...

Fresh off his filler-stuffed two-disc set with his Dipset Diplomatic Immunity, released just a few months prior, Santana does deliver a small clutch of tracks that could've formed the basis for an outstanding LP. However, there's not enough strong material to make this 70-minute affair a significant one. This comes down to Santana's improving but underdevloped skills as a lyricist and productions that are almost equally inconsistent. "Okay Okay" and "Santana's Town" are two great instances where the eager MC's commanding delivery is enough to bolster the Heatmakerz' energizing production work. On both tracks, Santana amps up his conversational style no doubt part of the effect Cam'ron's had on him with fiery command; taut curlicues of swelling strings increase the suspense of "Okay Okay," while squealing symphonic samples push the MC into the red in "Santana's Town." Had this been a six- to eight-track EP, with the bum productions and innocuous rhymes lopped off, Santana's stock would've no doubt been raised. The promise he still holds is obvious, given the flashes of brilliance, so here's hoping the second album sees that through.

    dont hate on the bandanna man

    Yo juelz is simply remarkable the amg rating for this ck is way way to low. Personally this is one of my favorite cd's. I am a diplomat die hard fan. But even for those of u who are not dip set fans this is still a good album 2,3,5,6,8,9,10,13,15,16,17 & 20 are all off the chain for real juelz has all the aspects of a hit cd it just didn't get the promation and releases it needed definately an album to get.not the next jay but the next juelz which is perfect.

    This ish is nice!

    This Album is hot but i have a few songs to say to avoid and a few to bang more than others. Basically 16, 19, and 20 are garbage. They arent that Dip Set Ish we used to. But you can bang all tha other tracks but tha heatas are 3, 5, 9, and 13. My personal favorites are Okay, Okay (Track 3) and Down (Track 5).
