Do you like Young Jeezy but think he's a little soft? Then this Florida MC and self-avowed "goon" is for you. Da Realist is Plies' second album of 2008, coming on the heels of the gold-selling Definition of Real. Over minimalist hand claps and kick drums, Plies dishes singsong choruses and asserts his goon-itude: On the creepy "All Black," he dreams of when he can "kill my first rap nigga . . . all head shots." Changes of pace include "Spend the Night," a pop-friendly sex jam where Plies tells a girl he'll "fuck you till you're out of breath." Da Realist is catchy and seductive in small doses, and Plies' no-frills chest-thumping has a certain logic to it. But when he says, "You ain't got enough guns, you gonna need some help," he could be talking about himself.
