Big Noyd Only the Strong
- Words: Pete Babb
- Label: Landspeed
Given Noyd's track record of enjoyable thug rap, this album could've easily been a guilty pleasure. Instead, Noyd comes across as a generic street prattler more often than not, typically failing to keep the proceedings enjoyable with a dose of humor ? la The Beatnuts. The real star of the show here is Alchemist, who brings potent, gritty funk on every track he does. Not to say Noyd is a disposable MC-far from it. He is more than capable of kicking some great verses. But on this album, he doesn't do much to separate himself from the pack of dime-a-dozen dun rappers.
