Album Notes and Credits
Audio Mixer: Rob Chiarelli.
Photographer: Don Sercer.
The New Boyz hit big in summer of 2009 with their stripped-down, poppy slice of novelty rap "I'm a Jerk." On the song, the duo of Ben J and Legacy come off as slightly goofy teenagers with a love for electro beats and sped-up voices. Their debut album follows up the single with a bunch of songs built from the same basic framework as "Jerk," some of them even quoting the sound and lyrics directly. "Dot Com," "Colors," "Turnt," and "So Dope" all have the cheesy drum machines, samples and off-kilter lyrical approach that make "Jerk" so good. Though the reliance on the "Jerk" sound can be a little monotonous, there are enough variations along the way to keep things interesting. Songs like the R&B ballad "Tie Me Down" (featuring smooth autotuned vocals from Ray J), the Bass-inspired "Bunz" (a very funny tribute to Sir Mix-A-Lot's "Baby Got Back"), the slow jam "New Girl" and the rollicking "Cashmere" (which bumps along like a New Jack rap jam), are all nice diversions. The duo's flow, while not incredible, is more than convincing, and sometimes strikes real inspiration about typical teenage concerns such as girls, girls, and more girls. If you are looking for pop rap with a fresh sound and a light lyrical touch, the New Boyz debut is a fine destination.
