For years, I was fiending for the Soul Brother to come out with some new material. 2004's Soul Survivor was definitly worth the long wait. This is without a doubt one of the hottest albums of 2004. One of the highlights of this album is the way the Chocolate Boy Wonder creates a stirring diversity of tracks for the artists to perform on this album, creating melodies to suit each artists flow. Highlight tracks on this album include the riveting "Beef", featuring Boston's own Krumbsnatcha, and also "We Good", featuring one of the most underrated M.C's in the game, Kardinal Offishall. And what better way to cap things off with than a Pete Rock-C.L Smooth reunion track, "Appreciate", a feel-good cut, which brings the listener to reminisce Hip-Hop's golden era, when it was all about the material. Overall, a must have for all the true Hip-Hop Heads. Also, look out in 2005 for the Pete Rock-C.L Smooth reunion album. One love.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

wow. this album shows that albums like gangstarr's 'the ownerz', method man's 'the prequel' and the upcoming nas 'streets disciple' that comebacks of the finest hip-hop can be pure heat. pete rock puts on the set the talented rapper pharoahe monch, talib kweli, rza & gza bringing the ruckus, the, however dead prez' aggressive clubtrack on the single 'warzone', and the wonderfull three reunions with cl smooth (well known for being on the mic on 'mecca and the soul brother' a jazz-rap classic with pete) we all know the underrated five-stars. the best tracks on the album are definetely the laid-back track with pharoahe 'just do it', the wonderfull typical reunion track with cl smooth 'appreciate' and j-dilla's 'n*ggaz know'. pete rock remains my favorite producer exept primo cause he's keeping things exactly like the days with 'mecca and the soulbrother and 'the main source'. ain't a damn thing changed. it seems that after 3 months kanye west's got a big rival to make 2004 hip-hop's finest.Was this review helpful?
