  1. I like that Lifers track. Ghettosocks and Timbuktu are pretty good. I saw them live once and they had a flawless set.

  2. Glad to hear people are enjoying it.

    While I find that all the bigger names on the album deliver the goods, I also really like that the lesser known guys are also coming with some heat. Some of my favourite verses on here are by the non-marquee members. I also really like the verse from Ginzu 333 that opens “Back Home”.
