A significant step up from their debut, the Playaz Circle's sophomore release FLIGHT 360: THE TAKEOFF finds the duo trading lines like they've been together for years. There's a long guest list -- ranging from OJ Da Juiceman to Ludacris - but Tity Boy and Dolla Boy are hardly cowed. Even when an auto-tuned Lil Wayne appears on the highlight "Big Dawg", the duo are in command and with "duffle bag" references being dropped frequently, there's no mistaking who's behind this players ball. It's hard to deny this simple, entertaining album has highlights well into the fourth quarter, as the Playaz often sound very East Coast. Seeing how they love "Z"s and keep their swagger chilled and smooth, FLIGHT 360 suggests they are a 21st Century update of the likeminded Sporty Thievz which for most hip-hop fans, is a very good thing.
