When Pigeon John joined Quannum, I was excited. Not only was one of my favorite rappers now on my favorite rap label, it meant he could start laying down collaborations with guys like Gift of Gab and Lateef the Truthspeaker. Unfortunately, his first album on Quannum features no such collaborations. He does join forces with guys like RJD2 and Brother Ali, but none of his Quannum labelmates feature on this disc. That said, Pigeon John doesn't lose his stride at all with the album. He simply does what he does and what he does is great.
