Chi-Town Stand Up 4Real
Yo, Bennie Franks has been shuttin' it down since Money Makin' Soldiers. I picked up on my guy when he hit with them Legit Ballaz with Twista & crew. This cat right here with that "What'cha Gon Do" off vol. 1 was just scorchin. Representin them Robert Taylor Homes 4real, true Chicago hip-hop on a whole different level. Good production from Toxic, Cayex and a few other cats. This album here is that real talk from the Chi. I know cause I lived it, and it's raw. Keep it gutta mayn & continue to put it down for the South side of the city. It's F.U.P.M now mayn.

Solid Album
I was waiting for this album since Diamond in the Ruff because it was promoted so well. I copped the album on 63rd street by Western. You reppin the Chi right my nigga; the joint you did wit Mikey is bangin along wit the rest of the album.

cenzo

kept it chicago!!!!!!!!!
bennie franks really impressed me with the album. i expected some garbage 'cause thats whats been coming out of chicago for awhile. it was unexpected that he'd keep it "gangsta" but also C-H-I throughout the album. i liked all but three songs off it, the songs about females and that to the side song. vudu gave one wack-ass beat but other than that, the album is solid. i recommend this album to anyone who likes that chicago gangsta shit that isn't watered down new york trash
