Not too long ago, Cash House Entertainment sent me a preview copy of the soon to be released album MasterMinds by Vango Soze.

Common themes on the album are making money, smoking j's, crime, and - for the most part - non-violence. For example, the track "All This Dough" insists that the listener "look at all this dough".

The line "fall in love in the middle of a 'j'" in "Roll 1" aptly summarizes the whole song. Likewise, the title of "Kush Got Me On The Celing" gives the premise of the entire track.

I find it interesting that two tracks point out that what may look to be a gang from outside may actually be a family. The tracks in question are "I Was Built 4 It" and "We Made It". This is keeping with the non-violence of "World Peace" in which the audience is encouraged to smoke a j for world peace. And, honestly, nothing else seems to bring world peace, so it's definitely worth a shot.

The music, samples, and vocals, and lyrics work well together. This is especially evident on "Get Money Gang" where the vocals and beats are extremely well synced to Motley Crüe's "Home Sweet Home". Another example is "MasterMind" in which the music's ominous sound matches the words perfectly. In fact, the only track that has issues with music and vocals meshing is "Street President" where the buzzing bass makes it difficult to hear the vocals at times.

MasterMinds is a well-arranged album with a rather large number of tracks, good beats, catchy music, and consistent quality.
