"Last 2 Walk" is the long-awaited, ninth album from the Memphis Hip Hop group Three 6 Mafia. After the group shot into the limelight with "Stay Fly" in 2005, they have been rather quiet, but I believe that this album will bring their popularity back up as they return with more top-quality Dirty South rap music.
2. "I Told 'Em"
This one gets things started as they get into the type of raps which they are most known for performing as they do a little Gangsta Rap and tell others not to play around with them, due to the amount of repspect they currently have on the streets.
3. "Trap Boom"
To me, this was a pretty average track form the group and didn't really have them coming with anything too original. As they are so strong at making beats and rapping, the fact this is simply a filler can be missed by some listeners, but it is still a nice tune for the record.
On this track you have the group go for some traditional Gangsta Rap (which you wouldn't expect when simply looking at the title). On it, they rap about how they don't mess around with immature people who try to start beef, so they simply advise them to go and play their "Playstation".
5. "I Got"
For me, this is the best track off the album, and perhaps the best tune they have ever performed. This is a high-energy one from them as they take on the Electronica anthem "Kernkraft 400" by Zombie Nation. This chanting tune gives them a House backing, which is a big change, but it really suits the direction of the tune as they list off the qualities they have with the late UGK member, Pimp C.
6. "I'd Rather"
We have a very straight-forward track to get this album in this collaboration with the Atlanta DJ and rapper Unk. Basically, they speak their mind and talk about their sexual preferences (no their not gay) as they claim that oral is better than regular sex. There's not much more to it than this. I'm not sure why it was done in such a way, but the production sounds rather dark with the sounds of the piano and hard percussion, it really doesn't present the topic in the way that the lyrics do and I feel that it lets it down.
7. "That's Right"
Here is one of the singles from the album and it has them collaborate with Akon. At first, I didn't think that I would think much of it, because Akon was a part of it, however I found that because the pair come with some amazing beats and raps to brush over the fact that Akon's voice is so annoying.
8. "Corner Man"
I have to say that I did like this one, however it wasn't really that special as it has them go for some rather predictable raps by doing a track about how they sell drugs and aall which is involved within this sort of activity. I thought that it was all kept together with the strong beats though.
9. "Weed, Blow, Pills"
On this one you have Juicy J and DJ Paul show how their skills as producers have developed as much of this one relies on their ability to scratch and mess around with the lyrics, they Chop and Screwed it, amongst other things, in order to show how the essentials of Hip Hop still live on today, even in the "Third Coast", which is often criticised, and said to have killed the genre.
10. "DSX Talk" (Skit)
11. "Hood Star"
On this one, Three 6 Mafia get aid from the Soul musician Lyfe Jennings, who lends his great vocals to a slower track from the Memphis duo. I thought that it was slightly below the standard of what they tend to come with, probably down to the fact they go away from the club raps and get more lyrical.
12. "Get Ya Rob"
You have Three 6 Mafia go for a Gangsta Rap track for this one, and it seems to be a well done one as they come to perform with Juicy J's brother, Project Pat, who is well-established in this field. You are advised to keep grinding in this one and various reasons for this are outlined during the cut.
13. "On Sum Chrome"
I have to say that I wasnt fond of the production on this album, however when things swicthed up and the beat is swapped for a UGK cut, and when this happens, both Bun B, and the late Pimp C jump on the beat to update their rhymes for 2008.
On this one, they go or another track about how they use drugs, and what effects they cause. This is a generic one from them, and they attempt to add energy to it by using some of the techniques which made their smash hit, "Stay High" so popular. I thought that it was effective though, so I won't really complain about it.
15. "Click Bang"
16. "On My Way"
Here is the long-awaited collaboration between Three 6 Mafia and the Pop Punk group Good Charlotte. I have to say that I didn%u2019t really expect much from this, as I haven%u2019t found a good song by the group ever, but it was fairly decent, and a nice blend of the two genres, without having one overpower the other.
17. "Dirty B***h"
I didn't really get why that title was used for the track as I thought that it didn't really fit in with what they went with in their raps. They speak on how they treat their women, and as they aren't too close to them emotionally, they keep it distant and make sure they don't get a grasp on their riches.
18. "First 48"
This is the final musical track on the album and has the group collaborate with all the big artists from the southside. You get all the big names such as Project Pat, Al Kapone, DJ Spanish Fly, 8Ball & MJG, who dominate the underground Dirty South scene. This one has them show the masses how much power the "Third Coast" has, and I found it to be highly effective.
"Last 2 Walk" is a good release from Three 6 mafia, but at times you tend to see how they ae running short of material, since they have gone for nine album sso far. However their production has still managed to remain high quality, so you can't complain too much, especially since they go for club ttacks for the most part.
