Surprisingly I'm still not skipping the skits. Usually I start skipping them on most albums aftera few listens. Still listening to and enjoying these. Love the narrative. Seems very much influenced by The Roots - Undun. I'm looking forwarf to digesting the bonus disc songs, other than The Recipe which I've played quite a few times since it dropped. The others, I've barely heard.
Dead @ 0 being Vinnie Paz
I really got people trying to tell me Mac Miller's a better lyricist than A$AP Rocky...
smh, that's fucking stupid, b. A$AP ain't Ras Kass on the mic, but he's far from bad, whereas Mac Miller is shit.
^furious, projects self-image onto others^
Talent/charisma draws. Not size.
