Though he cooked up some of the hottest Southern club joints of the late ’90s (Trick Daddy‘s “Shut Up” and Trina‘s “Da Baddest Bitch”), Tony Galvin’s head has always been in the underground. Unfortunately, his beats for his own group lack the bite that made his commercial tracks so hot. The General Dynamic toes the optimistic, straight-up hip-hop line, but we’ve heard it all before. There’s nothing to knock about the work Galvin and MCs Mental Growth and JL Sorrell put in on their debut LP, but there‘s nothing to differentiate tracks like “Ease Back” and “The Trap” from any other LP on Sandbox Automatic, either.
