is really fucking good.
Got hold of it yesterday after reading pretty much rave reviews across the board, haven't managed to make it the whole way through the 22 tracks in one sitting yet but I'm loving it so far.
From now on I'm holding them up to Cuban Linx II. The tracks you'd think wouldn't work are some of the best on the record, like the track with Jadakiss and Styles P.
with that first sentence, sad as that is.
Its actually been a pretty fair year for hip hop; Mos Def, Doom, POS, KRS/Buckshot, but all these have dropped a notch or two based off this albums successes. Nothing new or groundbreaking, just a solid concept carried through with topnotch production, and vintage Wu lyricism/symbolism. Still discovering quotable lines.
Is killer. As is Slaughterhouse's release this year. And I got love for POS and MF Doom's albums this year.
