One Man Band Man [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jason Birchmeier
Shortly after fellow rap producers Pharrell and Timbaland released solo albums of their own, Swizz Beatz served up One Man Band Man, and like those of his peers, it fails to fulfill its potential, held back by repetitive, inane raps and relentless, self-indulgent boasting. Prior to this misstep, Swizz had been on a hot streak. Most notably, he produced three of the best songs on Beyoncé's 2006 chart-topper B'day "Get Me Bodied," "Upgrade U," "Ring the Alarm" as well as her number one soundtrack hit "Check on It" from The Pink Panther. He'd also recently produced tracks for Jay-Z, T.I., the Game, Ice Cube, Busta Rhymes, Gwen Stefani, R. Kelly, Eve, and UGK. Given such ...

Shortly after fellow rap producers Pharrell and Timbaland released solo albums of their own, Swizz Beatz served up One Man Band Man, and like those of his peers, it fails to fulfill its potential, held back by repetitive, inane raps and relentless, self-indulgent boasting. Prior to this misstep, Swizz had been on a hot streak. Most notably, he produced three of the best songs on Beyoncé's 2006 chart-topper B'day "Get Me Bodied," "Upgrade U," "Ring the Alarm" as well as her number one soundtrack hit "Check on It" from The Pink Panther. He'd also recently produced tracks for Jay-Z, T.I., the Game, Ice Cube, Busta Rhymes, Gwen Stefani, R. Kelly, Eve, and UGK. Given such contacts, it's puzzling why Swizz didn't ask at least a few of these superstars to return the favor and contribute to his album. That's what Pharrell and Timbaland did on their respective solo albums, In My Mind 2006 and Shock Value 2007, and that's indeed what Swizz did on his previous album, G.H.E.T.T.O. Stories 2002. As expected, the productions are lively, no question about that Eve's contemporaneous single, "Tambourine," is a good point of comparison. When the album's rare guest raps Drag On on "Bust Ya Gunz"; Lil Wayne [whose gonzo verse is the album highlight], R. Kelly, and Jadakiss on "It's Me Bitches [Remix]" do turn up, they're a relief. Had Swizz included more guest features like these, and consequently put himself on the sidelines more frequently, One Man Band Man would be a much more enjoyable listening experience.
