G-DEP and Loon – Bad Boy (2007)

Loon and G-DEP are both artists looking to regain their status in the rap community after a long time forced underground. Both Loon and G-DEP are Harlem natives and former Bad Boy Entertainment artists that gained some success early in their careers. Loon signed with Puff Daddy in 2000 and, after making some featured appearances, left to form his own label in 2004. G-DEP still owes Bad Boy Entertainment four more albums as part of his deal.

The album is below average at best. It has a mixtape quality in the mixing department, and the lyrics are average and sound like every one else in gangster rap. Loon does take time to respond to the beef between him and fellow rappers the Dipset. The production is the best part of Bad Boy; it’s the only part that doesn’t make the album seem like it was made in some basement last week. If you like good beats and reparative gangster rap, this album is for you. If you require depth from the artist and good musical quality then save your money.
