The continuation of Young Chris's Network series persists into the uncertain future posed by life after Roc-A-Fella. Young Chris was and always will be regarded as a truant who made the most of his C-Ave come-up story with Neef Buck, together forming the Young Gunz sect of State Property during Philadelphia's most illustrious era of rap. The Network 4 and the albums before it saw Chris bear down with tons of hospitality. This time around Young Chris basically goes at it alone, even without Neef Buck kneeling over the turnbuckle.
The Network 5 mixtape goes to familiar pastures. Young Chris ponders what went amiss with the storied label, while simultaneously crediting the Roc-A-Fella dynasty with helping him move out his grandmother's house. Songs like "Roc-A-Fella" show a regard for history that few in hip hop can afford to entertain for fear of being passed over. Young Chris is after all the rapper who famously sang, "Can't stop, won't stop, Roc-A-Fella Records, we get down baby, we get down baby."
