    I just purchased this album on Saturday. This is the best album I’ve heard in a while. A great listen all the way through with continuity in the subject matter and story telling. You can feel the amount of care that was taken to produce such a great piece of work. Doesn’t seem like many albums these days contain this kind of consistent quality. Great flow, lyrics, storytelling, beats, etc. Awesome.

    I’m going to be honest…I first downloaded the album for free, but after listening to the full album and truly loving it I went and bought a copy for I felt guilty stealing a masterpiece!! :)
