It's cringeworthy from start to finish. There are actually some half decent hooks on the features just wasted. I thought the MMLP2 had some flashes on it, this one's the worst he's ever made though.

I listened to it w my mans playing FIFA last night. Had to switch to Bad Neighbor by Madlib, Blu and MED to wash out the bad taste. New Conway on Christmas though so we lit!

Was just re-watching that Black Thought on Flex. The breath control and ability to do that in one take is not normal.

Eminem been trash since Encore. One of the greatest ever, but he’s tarnishing his rep by putting out garbage year after year. When dude dropped Rap God I thought he was about to kill the whole scene. Then I Heard that wack boring album...

He needs to stop doing Rap albums and focus on being whatever else he does.

I cannot stand Nicki but my god she slays this beat, fire, and that synth sound that underlines the track is pure ear candy, wow:

Well...Black Thought >>>

This is a mic drop on 2017.


It's gotten to the point... Black Thought is the greatest MC of all time. His flow is submerged in the fountain of youth, he can murder anyone on the mic, he rips any freestyle, you ask him for a 16 and he gives you 160. There's not a MC that can touch Tariq, it's not even up for debate to me anymore.


The dude's been a lyricist that could go bar for bar with pretty much anyone for how long now? And he hasn't slipped up a bit.


I know the collaboration has happened, but I can listen to Black Thought and Pharoahe Monch spit over an entire album
