Album Review: Paul Wall > Politics as Usual

Politics as Usual
Paul Wall
Warner Bros. / Jan 25th, 2011
2.6 of 5 (52%)

Analysis: Not any better or worse than expected; this is flat-out a Paul Wall record where the rhymes barely rise above average, the subject matter rotates between three or four well-traveled roads, and the sticky Southern beats are the main attraction of every track. But lets be real, who doesn’t love an occasional Paul Wall banger?
