Mash Out Posse Mash Out Posse
- Words: Luciana Lopez
- Label: Fast Life
M.O.P. loses none of their aggressiveness here, even though this album steps outside their usual range for a style they're branding "hood rock." A hard-edged mix of guitar and rap, it's the hybrid album Limp Bizkit would never have the balls to make. But it's a risk for M.O.P., who came together with NYC band Shiner Massive to lay down these remakes of their previous work. Overall this album works, as on "Hilltop Flava," their muthafucka-laced version of the Beasties' "No Sleep Til Brooklyn." But some tracks lose in translation, like "Robbin' Hoodz," their new version of "Ante Up."
