Even with all its clever samples and sideways acknowledgments, of course, Under Construction is to true-skool hip-hop what SI's Swimsuit Issue is to women's fashion- but don't try and front like you don't salivate over that shit. Once you push the politics of it aside, Under Construction's a good record with some incredibly sick production work. Anyone who'd dismiss it for the sake of maintaining some bullshit underground cred is only playin' himself.
