What an amazing album. If anyone here can truely appreciate hip-hop, not the mainstream 50 Cent/Lil' Wayne garbage on MTV, then this album is for you. Such an intelligent lyricist. Not once will he ever swear, his rhymes are pure genius. Hailing from London Ontario, in my opinion Canada's top rapper, and one of the best out of North America.

Some have compared him to Common, however i think that may only qualify for Common's earlier stuff. His new product seems to be getting a little "blingy" and i ain't diggin it (talking about Common here, my man Shad killz).

Check that video out for a taste of his stuff. He's coming out with a new album late May, so i figured a review of his last masterpiece was in order. 10/10. Not every track is pure excellence, but the good ones far outweigh the mediocre ones, so overall the good ones win out. Memorable tracks: Brother Watching, The Old Prince Still Lives At Home, Compromise, Get Up.

There's other music than metal out there!!

Next memnoch review, Garth Brooks' Greatest Hits!!! Very Happy

I dont know if you were joking above but I actually always liked Garth Brooks lol, actually first concert I attended when I was like 6 was Garth Brooks and It was great. That was the only country singer Ill ever see and enjoy that much and a few months ago I found his greatest hits for like 2 bucks in a bargain bin so I got it and Its actually quite enjoyable. Cant say the same for much other country musicians except that I am a very big D.A.C fan.

Picturing you there is much more humorous; I give you five minutes before you say something blatantly racist and get yourself stabbed.
