BEING MYSELF is a remixed, re-released version of an album that was originally issued by Warlock records in 1994. These earlier cuts provide a glimpse of the lyrical craft that Juvenile would later perfect as he took the hip-hop world by storm in the late '90s. On choice tracks like "U Can't Come Around," "Sling It to Tha Back," and "G-ing Men," Juvenile pours forth the passionate rhymes that fans have come to expect from him.
What makes BEING MYSLEF different from later Juvenile releases is the collection's lack of Southern bounce. Though the backbeats and instrumental touches are strong in their own right, they're of a separate class from the familiar production sound that Juvenile rode to success in later years. Other highlights include "Betcha' 20 Dollars" and "If You're a Player." Though not the best collection for neophytes, BEING MYSELF should be sought out by seasoned fans.
