Good debut albumApril 15, 2013
First and foremost, I will start off by saying this is the best album I've heard in a while that keep things strictly East Coast. I've been a Papoose fan for years and I must say I waiting for years for this album. I only gave it 4 stars because there is a song that I thought could have been better "What's My Name", but it grew on me after I listened to it for a while. I do not agree with all of the reviews about the album sounding outdated. True hip hop albums that have the potential of being classics are never really outdated, look at "Reasonable Doubt", look at "Ready To Die", and "Illmatic" those are albums that never get old, and they sound better than most of the hip hop albums that come out now that is suppose to be up-to-date in so many words. This Album came out on the same day as Lil Wayne's I Am Not A Human Being II which is new and includes the new school type production, 'Auto Tunes' and all of the garbage gimmicks that entered the hip hop world over the last 4-5 years and this albums blows that out of the water hands down. You can't even compare the concepts nor the material. Also, I will admit Pap does have the ability to put out and even better album in the future but this album is music to my ears and I can't stop listening to it. I am the type of person that don't even listen to the radio or even know about too many of these new artist that come out now talking about Molly's and all that BS. The last few artist albums that I heard and like is Meek Mill, and Kendrick Lamar. Those two young brothers have talent, but most of these other young dudes lack originally and is constantly disrespecting the art form of hip hop, they are simply rapping just to get paid with not much to say. Coming from someone that grew up when hip hop meant something, and to be an MC you had to have something meaningful to say.....
I would recommend this to a friend
