They Say All Music Guide

So how is it that the usually closely watched Little Brother can sneak out an album without much fanfare? It’s not so much the departure of member 9th Wonder or the group’s split from major label Atlantic, but the fact that And Justus for All is really a fringe release, a repackaged re-release of the 2007 mixtape that shares its title and was “presented” by Mick Boogie. That explains the transitions from track to track and why the overall flow of the album is ragged. Member Big Pooh has rightfully claimed that the group’s mixtapes are very close to being albums themselves, but out of all of them, Boogie’s Justus had so many interludes concerning the mixtape game — including the legal battles mixtape man DJ Drama fought — that the transition is difficult and the solid theme is lost. Still, this is prime material dating from the time between The Minstrel Show and Get Back, with plenty of that Little Brother wit. Only 40 seconds in and you’re graced with “Yo, give the drummer some/Pipe down, give the plumber some,” and less than a minute later they’re dissing folks who “got their hands out like the Allstate sign.” In between those lines are deep, serious thoughts about how comfortable people aren’t mad enough at the injustices of the world, making “Can’t Stop Us” a prime example of the yin-yang power of the duo, but there’s more than a handful of these highlights with B+ material as filler. Dropped from the original release are some tracks with samples that would have been expensive to clear and in their place are five new cuts, including the standout slice-of-life “Too Late for Us.” The free-to-experiment spirit of Phonte’s Foreign Exchange project is a heavy influence on a number of cuts and respected producers like DJ Babu, DJ Spinna, Nottz, and Rjd2 supply the beats. The underground original beats this release by a length, but with extra material and all tracks now stripped of Boogie’s weird “Commissioner!” drop, hardcore fans will need both editions. – David Jeffries
