Team Tuck hip-hop Joey Fingaz

Team Tuck's appearances on DJ Joey Fingaz's mixtapes earned the Akron duo some serious cred. But MCs X-tro and Jay Tuck can't quite pull it together on their own album. Ohio Representatives features some solid tunes — particularly "Rock This City" and "Don't Worry" —but there's also plenty of filler. X-tro and Tuck don't help matters by sleepwalking through many of the cuts. Fortunately, the beats (provided by an array of local producers) fare much better than the drab lyrics. From the fuzzy guitars of "Takeover" to the stunning orchestral blasts in "Prepare for War," the real magic happens behind the curtain.
