Beanie Sigel - Broadstreet Empire Vol.1: Lost Files [MIXTAPE] (Short Review)

TheVerdict: 
#BeansBack? As I'm writing out this quick-descript, I'm listening for that SP Beanie Sigel that we lost after The B.Coming .  Yea, I don't count The Solution because everything was a problem from that point up until recently.  After the embarrasment that was damn near every Beans track after his prison release due to his frustration with Jay and Dame,...,etc, Beans is back! The mixtape opens up with some hard hitting Beans over some soul samples.  A few simple beat flips that work to set the mood of the mixtape.  The first few songs are simply Beans clearing the air about the many situations he's dealt/dealing with. While I respect "The Show Must Go On" I quickly developed a bad taste in my mouth during "The Pay Back", which is an obvious diss to Jay-z.  Nobody's listening to you Beans; just move on.   From that point on though, it's just Broadstreet Beat Bullying.  There's no commercial sing-songy sounding sh*t on here.  If you missed the Beans that dissed Kiss, that spit "The Truth", that just wasn't the type of beast emcee you'd want to f*ck with, then this tape is for you. While this is definitely a good look for a simple mixtape, Beans has to step up the quality of the production for his upcoming album The New Classic.  You get a little bit of everything with this album, dope lyrics, raw feel, good pacing, etc.  But Above all, I'd have to say I really appreciated the appearances by Freeway and Young Gunz.  It was just so State Property in those moments.  Beans Fans Need This!! 
Please excuse some of the "noisy" engineering choices present on tracks like "B Boy Stance".
