Volume Control begins with an enthusiastic and sincere cosign from DJ Symphony, the deejay for Wu-tang's Raekwon the Chef. From there, the throwback rap duo of Money Stax and Neeky Devero launch into the prototypical crowd mover Goosebumps, and slides smoothly into the body of the record, whose moments of emotional vulnerability and chest-thumping aggression both feel equally sincere. The "I-can-do-better-on-my-own" anthem Sure Thing will be blasting out of many frustrated chicks' car stereos if they have better taste in music than men. In fact, songs like Caught Up and the transcendantly dope I Don't Know Anymore also transparently display the difficulty of being a strong-willed and independent woman in love with an equally strong-willed dude.
