RapReviews 7/10 stars[1]

RapReviews - "...At its core Latino Velvet is still mostly Jay Tee and Baby Beesh who display a very similar style and mindframe. Their tight chemistry makes up for the fact that Frost and Cisco are featured only on a minority of the cuts...If you like to sit back and contemplate your own hustle, this should be the album of your choice..."[1]
