Tha Alkaholiks "Firewater" Album

The Alkaholiks (not the Liks anymore?) apparently have an album named "Firewater" courtesy of the mighty Koch empire on January 24th? It's being billed as the crew's final and farewell album.

Here's a rundown from rapreviewz.com:

Hip-Hop's favorite frat boys aren't ready to give up that title just yet. The E-Swift, Tash, and J-Ro, collectively known as the Alkaholiks, are back to throw another sonic toga party. Didn't "21 & Over" come out in '93? Yep, over a decade later and tha Liks are still the happy-go-lucky bunch they've always been. After four albums under the Loud Records umbrella, the trio releases "Firewater" with everyone's new favorite indie, Koch. Sadly, there's speculation that this will be the group's last offering. I guess even Van Wilder eventually graduated..

...From top to bottom, the Liks drop one party jam after another. This should be no surprise to any hardcore Liks fans. The crew will never be mistaken for conscious rappers and you should've figured that out from their name. But real emcees respect them for their humor and wit. They're straight up punchline warriors. They're here for one reason only: to have a good time. With that in mind, you have to appreciate how well they do their jobs...

...Overall, I would have to say this is the weakest Liks album of their five releases, but not by much. And anyone who's heard their previous four knows that they have a lot to live up to. You just get the feeling that they've mellowed out for their swan song and are already looking ahead to challenges that await in their solo careers. But let's face it, Tha Alkaholiks have nothing left to prove...
