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.
