Paullelujah! is the first studio album by American hip hop musician MC Paul Barman.[3] It was released on Coup d'Etat in 2002.[6]

Critical reception[edit]

John Bush of AllMusic gave the album 2.5 stars out of 5, saying, "As a rapper, MC Paul Barman makes a pretty good humorist, though he's actually more clever than he is funny."[1] Nathan Rabin of The A.V. Club said, "A steady diet of nothing but MC Paul Barman would be tough to take, but it'll be a sad day when there's no place in hip-hop for his kind of goofy iconoclast."[2]

Will Hermes of Entertainment Weekly gave the album a grade of B−, describing MC Paul Barman as "a class clown courting a beat-down, a slappable slapsticker matching weakling production and little-league flow with gym-toned wit and ghetto chutzpah."[5] Steve Juon of RapReviews.com said, "it's great for anyone who gets his concept, but his 'whiter than whitebread' rap flow will still irritate the hell out of everyone else.[8]
