This album takes it back into the past, the past of growing up in Chicago as a Puerto Rican. The album presents a feel of gangster rap, however also delivers an inspirational message. It has meaning as well as a strong feeling of passion in each track. Once you pop the CD in, you're introduced to a new style of Latin hip-hop, a style that has heart and creates a feeling of truth as well as experiences. The track "If I Had Things My Way" speaks about money and poverty, and stems from the fact that if he had things his way, no one would ever have to deal with the issues of money or poverty. This album is something that everyone must experience. It speaks wisdom as well as offers sick beats and creative hooks.
