We gave it a B+

On this set, Surnames-a-Lot remixes tracks from Notorious B.I.G., 112, and Mary J. as if they were funky Tinkertoys — leaving out a bass line here, dropping in a new arrangement there, adding cameo raps for good measure. These freelance gigs are as playfully imaginative as Sean Combs’ solo material is bereft of creativity.
