The Easy Truth is an in instant classic off of production alone with AB on the keys. Nothing will ever top that to me.

This album from a concept, lyrical perspective is wild to me. Love is Love concept crazy. Sound Like, Collateral & Crown’s Holder also elite sky tracks to me.

The album beats is to Jazzy. The problem with Sky is the same Problem with Kweli. They get to Nerdy with it. They need to study mos def cause he knows how to walk that line without sounding like a nerd.I did not think this album was all that.

Lupe runs into that problem as well. It gets so intricate that you lose him sometimes.

Sky always has that problem that he hits you w these triple entendres that are near impossible to solve.

Even saying that, his bars were crazy on a lot of these joints and he played w his flow a lot compared to recent projects.

Never had a problem with Wale, It was just always comical that you thought he was better than Skyzoo.

Heirlooms and Accessories was my song on first listen, I haven't been able to digest it properly yet.

My music like a brick in the air meets a fist in the air

Now your direction come into question like you was OnStar

Love me like introducing you to Dominicans like when I introduce you to Ayesha Diaz and Kim and them

Any thoughts on the best rappers since 1979 article? I don't have to much to disagree with but Andre 3000 and Ghostface needed to have a year if they were just going off rapping ability.
