Thoughts on it?

I'll be posting once I've given it a full listen or 2.

This album is iLL! I thought he was using his fast flow a little too much at first, but he chills on it a few songs in. Idk if this is top for this year for me yet, but it's dope as fuck (except for the track with hopsin, shit is trash).

I wish R.A. released an album around '97 when he was going wild. His tracks on Soundbombing 1 and Stretch Armstrong's Lesson 1 comp. are crazy

Need to get this new one

Dope album. RA needs to get more consistent with his album output. He has the it you are supposed to have to make quality albums.

This is the album of the year so far without a doubt, there wasn't a single song I was dissapointed in really R.a went fucking hard as shit on each track and features go just as hard because they have to, to avoid getting killed on the track. I was expecting a better verse from hopsin but besides hopsin's decent verse everything else on this album was perfect, not a skip-able track on the whole record. Even the intro is a dope ass song. The only complaint I have is I wish Sadat X would have had a verse in his song with vinnie and paz but at the same time the back and fourth that R.A and vinnie do in Sam Pecknah would be ruined since they'd most likely just get a verse each. Oh well

5/5 album, Love this shit been needing some more of R.A's shit.

I've spun this a few more times, and I really love this album. Easily the best of the year so far. I still can't dig Underground Hitz, the beat and my hatred for hopsin won't allow me to, but besides that, it is excellent. 4.75

Every single one via preview. Terrible, awful beats. Of course his rhymes are great as always.

What kind of beats do you like? Because it's not like this album's not well-done. They hit their mark on every track I'd say. Seems like it's gotta be a matter of taste. Would you agree?

He's done a lot of tracks with Sunz/Stoupe/Snowgoons type productions over the last few years, so I could see expecting the album to sound more like that.

I don't know much about Hopsin. I remember being bored of his album pretty quick, after liking it at first.

I think his verse is just right on this album. His flow is interesting more than his rhyme, but that's good too, just simple.

It is my least favorite beat on the album, but I don't need to skip it.

I like this, 4-5/5 stars. Daddy's halo is one of the best tracks, but could be much better with sadder beat. Bang boogie should be longer cause it's so good. Underground hits is the worst track, imo.

I think R.A. is becoming one of my favorite rappers. Must be in my top 10.

I read about his dad's passing. The man was really glad to have a year too plan it out. Basically the whole family was affected kind of like a spiritual graduation. The situation was just more positive, overall, than negative. I think that's why he didn't want the song to be overpowered with sadness.

For the record, I think 'Luv to Fuk' is a great song. Fucking hilarious. I laugh every time Eamon says "... tearin up that butt..."

Also, Hopsin's verse gets better every time to me. His rhyme isn't complex at all, but he really handles that beat impressively. It's sonically entertaining.
