i think the thing with Ross is this....he has the best production on his albums outside of Kanye, could u imagine jay-z having all those justice league tracks,......ross can really ride a beat but i think he trys to blow like biggie so much and he doesntt have presence on his tracks and the beats drown him out.

10 Jesus Pieces is perfect example and so is Diced Pineapples...when stalley came in his presence took over the track, ross veres's and hooks sounds the same, Wales verse on diced pinapples k!lled ross, just like jay's presence on 3 kings, and i think its safe to say ross/kendrick lamar wrote that.

Ross has a great catalouge, but most of ross's best songs have features like maybach music 1, and 2, luxury tax, most all nas featured tracks....i wish nas's album sounded like this!!!!

All in all its a good 7.5 , just seams like ive heard this album before in teflon don, and rich forever...ross needs to reach out of his zone next album, get some joints from just blaze, More Kanye, 40 and t-minus, no id, etc!!!

I dont think ross is trying to be biggie. Ross has just exhausted himself. Lets be real. Ross can spit some deep lyrical sh*t when he wants to. Hes proven it over and over again. Just look at all his tracks with nas. Look at Teflon don, rich forever(2012),DTR,etc. The problem with ross is that he releases too much material and he overexposes himself. He basically released 2 albums within a 7 month period( rich forever, GFID). He runs out of material, so he gets lazy. Not to mention, hes competing with himself since hes on so many tracks. Look at ross since he built mmg. Hes doing too much.

2012 is the only year where ross got lazy on the mic. He'd spit hard on tracks like rich forever or triple beams, then he'd turn right back around and do some trap bullsh*t. Dude can spit but he has so much material out that he has to make a bunch of fillers and save lyrics for later tracks. Just think about all the songs ross released this year and all the songs he was featured on. Ross is becoming tired cause hes working to hard. Plus hes still having health issues. Album was solid as usual and it was still a very well crafted album. Only thing that got ross on this album was the lyrical portion. His rhymes were average on certain tracks and there were other tracks like Amsterdam, so sophisticated, MM4, Diced pineap[ples, pirates where i thought he was above avg in my opinion. But alot of people wanted the full package. Ross should have expanded his subject on this album. Other than that, album was good and still one of the best Ive heard all year. Ross doesnt know how to slow down and hold his material cause hes so scared of losing his buzz. Its hurting him. He even said in an interview that he only gets 3 hrs of sleep a day. Hell prob release another album material mixtape within the 7-8 months.

the thing I found funny is that it talked bad about MM4, 3 Kings and Dice Pineapples which are probably gonna be in people top 4-5 songs on the album, from what I seen by peoples comments on twitter.

Id give it a 8.5, its not a perfect album, but its pretty damn good.
true. im diggin the album. i know he hyped it up, but what artist doesnt.

The album is indeed fire. A lot better than Rich Forever.


This is a G-Unit forum as you can probably tell from the LLoyd Banks videos, a Mod said that their are some posters who have 20 different alias-accounts so you might have 1 person using 20 different accounts to say the same thing and co-sign themselves.

It's scary, only trust the ones who are credible.


This album may be a little to Soulfull for some people songs like Amsterdam, Ashamed, Sixteen, Rich Forever, MM4 & Presidential don't have the euro/techno sound that people grew to love on WTT, it's a Soulfull vibe...rich lush elegant Black.

knew this album wasn't going to get good reviews!!! we have already heard most the tracks, there is nothing even the slightest bit Musically interesting on it... Ross not Versatile anymore, he got 1 Flow followed by a handful of ad-libs

who gives a fu*k about a "Jay-Z & Dre" Feature?? Same goes with any Ross/Meek collab (they have done sooo many)... he bombed on "Touch'N You ft. Usher"

I'm just going to stop there, Ross hyped this album up to be Huge & it turned out to be a total Flop!! he should have released "Rich Forever" as his album, Incredible Mixtape btw... now he got to Hype Meeks Album up even though i feel like it will get pushed back
AGREED HORRIBLE ALBUM TRACKS FROM MIXTAPES GARBAGE

why do people keep praising rich forever? That sh*t was garbage compared to GFID. GFid is better musical wise and lyrical wise as an overall project and it was more solid.I mean, did you even listen to RF? Cause that whole tape had like 5 songs that were similar and a bunch of throwaways where you can tell ross wasnt even trying to spit on. Atleast on GFID, he spit a whole lot better than he did on RF. And GFID had way better beat section and it was varied, while RF had a bunch of repetitive trap beats. But i do agree that he shouldnt have put triple beam and rich forever on the mixtape in the fireplace and just put it on the album. But what difference does it make anyway? Its still all his music.
