    This is a really really good album. Production is immaculate, and he's talmbout something on here. AK, August, Black Fist, and My Uzi are my standouts. Can't put this ahead of MTA 1, but it's up in the ranks. Once again, Banner has never dropped a dud or bad album.

    Only thing I was missing was those country beats. Cleopatra Jones was close.

    If there is a single on this album, then I'd think it would be that Judy Blare junt. A clear attempt at a crossover track, but I ain't mad at it

    I dunno man. I think he overrsold it with all the "One of the greatest hip hop albums of all time" proclamations. I actually believed the hype.

    His mixtape "Before The Box" was jammin like a muhfucka. Raw. Aggressive. Bang-in-the-car beats. I played that shit like 3 weeks straight.

    So I figured if those mixtape tracks were outtakes from the actual album, this muthafucka has a for-sure game changer he's cookin up.

    After two full listens yesterday I was underwhelmed.

    Ceelo and Black Thought came through and killed their features. But that was to be expected. I'm used to Banner being washed by collabs on his own tracks. (No diss - he's still talented.)

    Also the spoken word by Big Rube was a highlight. Overall though, I was kinda let down.

    I'ma give it some play today to see if my thoughts change at all. Just wanted to drop some first-day impressions.

    Shit idk what y'all talking bout this shit fire. And he got cee lo to spit again too.
    CeeLo was doin more spoken word than spittin.

    Bumpin this 2 days now and its not all that. Some shit even is dated like i figured it would be from repeated delays.

    Black Thought has the best verse on the album.

    Magnolia, AK, Burning Thumbs my favorite tracks. Burning Thumbs sounds almost like he was tryn find that Cadillacs on 22s sound again.

    I like what he did on the final minute of the My Uzi track with the instrumental. Sounds epic like it belongs in the Jurrasic Park soundtrack.

    Thats part of the thing that sounds dated. Talkin about Miley twerkin.

    Also im not on board with everything he be sayin all the time.

    He called out Em for saying hes a rap god... But Em is a better rapper than Banner.

    I dont see how Adele is biting black culture. Her & her music is white as shit.

    Saying "they killed Michael Jackson because he was turning back black" ???

    Justin Timberlake should be Usher.... JT been makin better music than Usher for years plain and simple. Usher fell off.

    He did have some good lines in there about white ppl owning BET and not seeing any black folks when he walked in Def Jam (if thats true)

    White people took Rock and made it their own, but Hendrix was the pioneer...He's saying the same thing about soul, it was a black thing and now the white folks are pushing their white soul harder than the black soul

    But screw that why the fuck wasnt Krit on this album...My Uzi came out 2013 so that shit aint gonna suffice

    LOL at Jimi Hendrix being the pioneer of rock. It had been around way before 1967. One of the greatest guitar players of all time...yes. The pioneer of rock & roll...no.

    It is a great album. I don't agree with everything he says but I'm not against him and I'm for him speaking on issues close to him with that aggression that the game has been missing.

    This is like an Ice Cube album from the early 90s, raw, powerful and controversial. Love it.
