Review by Steve 'Flash' Juon

Artist: Sniper f/ Akon, Illestr8
Title: In Yo Life
Label: Future Green Entertainment

Being backed by hip-hop heavyweight DJ Green Lantern is a plus. Having Akon singing your hook is also a plus. Not being able to tell the difference between the song's alleged star and the featured guest - that's a minus. I'm assuming the first verse is by Sniper just because the song's filename is credited to him, but that's all I have to go on. This would ultimately be another minus because if that's Illestr8 on the second verse, he gets outshined by his guest star. The most frustrating part of this is that a reggae chatta seems to begin the third verse only to be prematurely cut off by an announcement for the title of Lantern's latest mixtape "The Scope's On You Volume 2." Lovely. The beat is a tolerably bouncy affair but much like Sniper himself just doesn't stand out in a crowded field. This song is best served ON a mixtape because as a single it's got almost no chance to advance.
