It is a sleek offering loaded with relentless passion, head bopping musicality and incredible rhyme schemes. The album is packed with many jewels and food for thought as well.

“Man N Da City2” is a well structured offering. It contains 18 tracks. Av The Great comes out blazing right from the start of the CD with the song called “The Illest Verse Of The century,” which thoroughly demonstrates his lyrical prowess. Moreover, the lead single from the album is a bold and relentless track called “Need A Raise.” On this song Av The Great breaks down that if he does not get a raise at his 9 to 5, then he is going back to the block and hitting licks.

One of the highlights on “Man N Da City2” is a song entitled “Stay.” This song is a deep, introspective record filled with soul piercing lyrics. The track is a lyrical diary of sorts.
