Its definitely a good time to be a fan of G.O.O.D. music, with the new release of the J. Period and Complex Magazine mixtape, "G.O.O.D. The Class of '06."

The mixtape features Kanye West of course, along with Common, John Legend, Consequence, GLC, and newly signed Mr. Bently (Why?) and Sa-Ra. Except for the hot mess, "Laid Back" by Mr. Bently, the mixtape plays like a G.O.O.D. music compilation album with several new songs, classics, freestyles, and blends. Highlights of the mixtape are the Common burner, "The Movement," the "Corners Remix" with Kanye West, and "The Good, The Bad, The Ugly," featuring the trio of Com, West, and Quence. "Hollywood" by Sa-Ra, is another banger, with its unique blend of west coat funk (Parliament) and R&B.

Hands down the star of the mixtape is Consequence, who still maintains his signature sound first heard on the B-Side of A Tribe Called Quest's "Electric Relaxation" single. What makes Consequence unique is his ability to tell the truth about his life. Like his verse in the standout "Spaceship" from Kanye's "College Dropout," were Quence spoke about his life post-A Tribe Called Quest, he speaks about why he can't return to his hood on "My Way Home, and spits, "They say Con' somethings different about you like a remix, oh I know what it is, you went an got ya teeth fixed," on the "They Say Remix." Not many artists are able to be as truthful as 'Quence and its a breath of fresh air.

Overall the mixtape is a must-grab, and unlike most mixtapes where the songs just start, J. Period does an awesome job of blending each song into each other, making it one of the few mixtapes you can listen too straight through.
