One of the founding members of New Jersey's eight-man crew Outsidaz steps outside The Bricks for his debut solo album. Having previously been floated on promo as The Pacewon Effect, it's a surprise to see both "Oriental" and "Secret" cut from this release, with the resultant selection offering little more than a barrage of thug talk. The pumps, cheeba, and general miscreant blinged braggadocio become a little overbearing over 21 tracks, though there is enough production quirk from Jay-Z deskman SKI to keep iterant ears from wandering too far. Further vocals are injected by KuruptRah Digga, and fellow Outsida Young Zee as well as Wyclef Jean, who returns the favor of Pace's contribution to the Fugees' multi-platinum Score.
