    I think I might check out dude's album....I've only heard a handful of Krit songs and I've been impressed so far.

    The album was disappointing compared to some of his mixtapes. But the album still has some jewels like this one.

    I liked his album I've never heard the mixtapes. This is one of the stronger songs on the album along with Porch Light.

    I'm guess I'm only one who thought the album was better than the mixtapes.

    The mixtapes were too raw and the songs were too similar IMO. Also, the mixtape songs were more spoken word than actual rapping.

    i think the contrary. listen to the album first then listen to the mixtape so he can really see the difference
    KRITs budget and execution is what stalled the album from being more than just "good"

    Incomplete concepts, it wasnt as dynamic as his mixtapes.
    The A&R/Underground theme was completely abandoned mid development
    The car jacking/DJ saved my life theme made no sense b/c there was no follow up. Idk what went on but KRIT usually pays more attention to detail than that. i put it on budgeting until further notice

    Good shit, I don't see why Spike would have an issue with it, hopefully it comes to pass

    Besides the fact it's a music video I don't see why he wouldn't do it either....he hasn't done one of those since fight the power with public enemy

    Needs to be more powerful. I get what he is saying which is his dad gave him knowledge, wisdom, understanding, but something is missing. I think he needs to come harder personally.

    @bolded, when I first got this album I was hyped from the Intro 'til about the sixth track. The little skit at the end of the second track was GREAT, it was setting the path for the rest of the album and matched the concept perfectly. With the fourth and fifth tracks being his lead singles I was ok with him putting them in that order... but then it just went downhill. I was disappointed that he didn't do this album as a concept. It would've been great.

    Because there's no real movement in Mississippi, and he's clearly cut from a different cloth.

    Seen our literacy rates? I was riding with some of my folks and this literally came out of my homegirls mouth: "it's too many words in these songs. It's like he from New York." Everybody cosigned.

    I looked around like, "Who the fuck am I friends with?"

    No simple-ass lyrics with a catchy hook = too complex for down here I guess.

    Plus, I think people slick think he's trying to sound like Pimp C instead of appreciating what's being said.

    that's crazy, because i remember hearing on the radio in Houston a few yrs back, and some djs were talking about why they don't play nas's music on the radio. it was basically the same thing you just said, i wish i could have recorded that shit.

    ya he did remind me of pimp c in a few songs
