Album Reviews:

The Source (6/98, p.164) - 3.5 Mics (out of 5) - "...the appearance of Short and some of his homies balances out the influx of new heads....NATIONWIDE shows that no matter how many new playas join the team, it's still about the benjamins..."

Rap Pages (9/98, p.125) - 3 (out of 5) - "...with a number of noteworthy performances from Too Short and a couple of other choice cuts, Short lets you know he's still in the house."w

Pimps and players today have nothing on the OG style of Too Short. This time out, Too Short puts together some young up-and-comers and some vets. Redman ("Whatever Man" remix), Keith Murray ("Independence Day") and George Clinton ("Killa Team") provide the muscle on a two-disc set. Too Short drops the mic and lets others shine on tracks like "When You See Me" by G-Side, "Are You Ready For This" by Badwayz and "Don't Stop" by Lyrical Giants. Other notable performances are from MC Breed, Sylk-E. Fyne, Pimp C of the Underground Kings and Jay-O Felony. Sharing the spotlight, Too Short allows others to get a piece of the action.
