Frank N Dank Xtended Play Version 3.13
- Words: Jesse Serwer
- Label: Needill Works-Chisel Sound
J Dilla fans already know what the deal is with Frank N Dank, the blunted Detroit duo who honed their flows on classic releases like Welcome 2 Detroit and Jaylib's Champion Sound. While Dilla produced only three tracks on their long-awaited proper debut, it's the beats-from a committee that includes Oh No and Toronto rhyme vets-turned-beatmakers Saukrates and Kardinal Offishall-that steal the show. Not to be outshined entirely, FND's endearingly lazy rhyme style works well on tracks like "What Up," a Ludacris-esque club banger. At 17 tracks and 55 minutes, however, Xtended Play feels a bit too long.
