Consumer Guide Reviews:

Mista Don't Play Everythangs Workin [Loud, 2001]
I don't try to play every horrible hip hop record--certainly not to the end. But this lump of thug gold got extra horrible after the single, so I stuck with it. He raps like your downstairs neighbor banging a broom on the ceiling, with beats to match. If a ho comes down from the suburbs and shoots him in the mouth, it'll only be poetic justice. D+
