about halfway in and i must say its nowhere near as gritty and cohesive as cc2. guess i may have been expecting too much, the production on cc2 was a perfect match with the lyrics. that doesnt seem to be the case here.

On a couple of cursory listens as well as one listen straight through....I am actually pleasantly surprised by this tape. My history with Banks is mixed. Always my favorite from G-Unit and loved the first album. Second album I just didnt pay attention and the next set of mixtapes I didnt really pah attention till CC1. I loved HFM2 and I CC2 is getting play like it came out yesterday. However I think this is the most consistently thorough project from start to finish. Maybe its just the freshness of it so far. Will give it the whip test tomorrow, have a feeling that "Protocol" might have people looking at me funny in traffic, tints only go so far.....

Edit - about to delete Meek, Childish Gambino, Ross, and Cyhi mixtapes except for a few songs. Banks got that angle covered in my rotation all by himself.

Just listened to the whole thing once. Definitely a solid tape. The track with Kiss is MEAN. Like alot of you said he needs to grind hard. Just putting out a mixtape isn't enough. Visuals play a HUGE part now more than ever before. He definitely needs to get with an engineer that can refine his sound because some of his vocals are hard to hear. As of right now CC2 is above this to me. That mixtape was just right for the time it dropped. I wish he would've done a video for "Make It Stack". Song had huge potential but he let it fizzle out. He's consistent though. I'll listen in the whip tomorrow to get a real feel for it. I've liked every tape he's dropped since CC. Looking forward to the Gangsta Grillz.
