On JUST TRYIN' TA LIVE, Devin the Dude presents himself as a streetwise hip-hop artist who's got enough pop smarts to make his music accessible to the general public, but enough credibility to keep things on the real side. Though JUST TRYIN' TA LIVE is laced with infectious production touches, crips, hard-hitting beats, and visceral synth hooks, the main attraction, quite rightly, is Devin's rhyming skills. Without belaboring his points, he manages to get them across with a minimum of fuss and a maximum of skill.
