Rap rocker Daddy X is a founding member of underground troupe Kottonmouth Kings, yet this time he opts to go solo, yet not without the help of his click. This 21-track West Coast hip-hop meets punk rock by way of P-Funk’s love of the green offering at first gets the blood pumping, but inevitably drags out to be a bit tired and played out, even though the stoner rap vibes found strewn about are lush and the white gangsta nuances are at times completely over the top. Somewhere between Eminem, 311, Snoop Dogg, and Kid Rock, FAMILY TIES is an album hard to swallow if you’ve ascended past college sophomore. But, if you’re looking for something to rock the frat house or keg party, songs like “Tha Bomb” and “Wake N Bake” will suffice.
