Prodigal Sunn

    The Return of the Prodigal Sunn


    Fringe Wu-Tang can be downright miserable, but the Sunz of Man put out a couple of passable albums in the ’90s that promptly went out of print. Coming back for more, Prodigal Sunn goes solo, although considering how many guest appearances there are on his debut (two, sometimes three, on nearly every track) it’s hard to call it solo album.

    Opener “In My Life” is a pretty good R&B song, but past that The Return of the Prodigal Sunn is mostly a routine stop on the road to hip-hop. RZA offers up a beat on “Lovely Ladies,” but it’s nothing special, and that really sounds like Jay-Z on “Procrastinators.” If you aren’t going to try something different musically or lyrically, why do you think your beats and rhymes are so much better than everyone else’s?
