To be blunt, it’s not worth it. If previous works did not suffice for my entertainment I’d probably not go out of my way to listen to the artist especially if there was a big buzz surrounding the artist. I’d be more willing if the: artist was featured on a song with another artist that I enjoy listening to/if the artist had features that I enjoy listening to
I have a soft spot for K. Dot’s and Danny’s verses, but I think everyone went in with the exception of Joey. He was serviceable, but you could note that he’s still young compared to the rest of these dudes.
I’m most def D/Ling this album on the strength of the features, because it’s all features. I wouldn’t have messed with it otherwise, since Rocky bores me to tears.
It’s also the reason I probably won’t cop. Label logic has gotten pretty confusing (load album with features to draw interest, then when album sells assume everyone likes the album artist and not the features), but if they actually could put two and two together I would have put the money on it.
Monotony of flow?
I did not expect that as an answer. I would understand if you said his subject matter is too repetitive, or you’re just tired of the hype, but the guy changes his flow pretty frequently and raps with a fuckload of charisma.
“Niggas ain’t ready for the flow switch!”
im actually disappointed that the album and this song leaked. it would make more sense for the song to come out 10 days before the album. also with this would be a great 2013 introduction to the big leauges for these “minor leaguers” as ebro so eloquently put it.
Danny won this, don’t know what y’all were listening to. “Moonwalkin in Michael Jackson’s penny loafers” “Wouldn’t hit that shit with my worst enemy’s penis”
KRIT and Kendrick were good as well. Yela had…heart? But I hate his delivery. A$AP was okay as always, he doesn’t move me either way. Bronson has had much better verses lately (check him out on “Stewed Rabo” off Meyhem Lauren’s album- absolutely SPAZZES).
Joey Bada$$ kinda sucks. Delivery’s okay bars are enhhhhhh…and he was clearly the worst here. Big Sean Bathroom Break Bars.
