Oliver Wang of LA Weekly weighed in on the new albums from Scarface and Clipse and both artists’ lionization of the drug dealer, which is as old as rap itself. Wang said, “What’s amusing about Clipse’s best-selling ‘Lord Willin” is how single-minded they are in talking up their past profession. Not every song is about dealing — one of the album’s best cuts… but ‘Lord Willin” undeniably feels drug-dominated. The upside is that Clipse push their crack credentials to the point of parody — however unintentionally — and that makes ‘Lord Willin” as entertaining as any of Ludacris’ purposely bugged-out songs.”
