’12 Disappointing Albums: #4 Beanie Sigel This Time

this time-cover

Pound for pound, Beanie Sigel has one of hip-hop’s strongest catalogues. But on this go-round, the Broad Street Bully is at his weakest with his sixth solo effort, This Time. Since his days on Roc, Beans’ forte has been reality raps and he picks up where he left off on cuts like “This Time” and “That’s All I Know”. But he steps out of his comfort zone on “Expensive Taste” and “Kush Dreaming”. Things get worse with messy choruses (“Bad Boy Mack, “Bang Bang Youth,” “Dangerous”) and an uneventful State Property gathering (“The Reunion”). Beans isn’t your average cat, but on This Time, he definitely comes across like one.

    this shouldnt even count though, he barely had a budget for the album and got locked up..

    • B.Dot

      But it was released…Did u listen? Probably not.

  • @Artise1

    This was most def…. a rush job. A focused Beans with a couple dollars for production is always tight. Beanie Sigel = Jadakiss

  • JustMyOpinion

    ^ rush job. You’re right, I think, he was heading off to prison after the release date.

  • Professor Oak

    Beanie Sigel does not have a strong catalogue….AT ALL!

    • B.Dot

      @Professor Oak say what?!

  • Get Real

    This album was not the wave at all. It’s hard to imagine he could go from #TheBComing to this …

  • it’s the roc

    @Artise1…agreed

    @Professor Oak…take a lap

  • ZoomZoomDad-Otis

    Beanie Sigel albums are nice. This 1 was kinda weak.

    Sigel definitely is a candidate for most disappointing career, but this album wasn’t that bad, shit, expensive taste was one of the better “party” tracks he’s ever did. This shit was definitely better than the Solution, I know that…

      i think it was the same as solution. i personally expect more from him

      • Keith Eades

        I think “this time is the same as solution but you tried to play it like its super weak in your review. I noticed your reviews on other albums and you went in on this one a guess because it Sigel situation…..Kush dreams is good too.

  • Nathaniel

    i didn’t even know beans dropped an album.

    • B.Dot

      @Nathaniel
      ^
      That’s fair for u to say that instead of just blindly hating.

  • mike

    Damn beans. His first wack LP

  • Carlito R

    See rappers can complain and diss Jay in interviews and freestyles all they want but they never seem to be able to put out hotter albums than Jay. And then they always have excuses on why their albums didn’t turned out like how they wanted them to be.

    As soon as he came out of Jail he should have started puttin this together, instead of trying to beef with cats – he spent mad energy with that – then the charges came and all of a sudden “i’m workin on my album” Why do you say that “Kush Dreaming” is out of his comfort zone?

    B. Dot on point. I’m a Beans fan and I say the shit was trash.

  • mitch

    @sway-z..agreed. The Solution was absolutely horrible by far his worst, but this album was lackluster also.
