Lyrically better than BP3, not quite as good as WTT though imo. Jay showing his age a little but still good. Overall, this is his best album since the Black Album to me, the last track is incredible.
 Vos said:
Still only heard 2 songs, but yeah, his verses on WTT are underrated as fu*k...he was really spitting on that album.

but err, best album since TBA? This can't be better than American Gangster...
Agreed. This is not better than AG.

The way I see it...since the Black Album. (and of course we aren't even gonna count Kingdom Come)

AG >>> WTT >>> MCHG >>> BP3

Ppl underrate the fu*k out of WTT's lyrics.

Someone said this album feels like a continuation of WTT without Kanye. I kinda agree. I gotta give this album more spins but I was definitely feelin' it on the first impression.

I'm listening to his new album now and I must say the album is nice production wise but lyrically his sh*t is 50/50 some sh*t that he's trying just don't fit him. This n*gga love sampling or biting rhymes from BIG though the man been dead almost 20 yrs and he still biting him in someway.
are people really this dense or do they actually think Jay is STEALING Big's rhymes? Like honestly, if he wanted to steal lyrics, why the fu*k would he 'steal' the artist's most well known lines?

and as a reminder, stealing is when you take someone else's work and pass it off as your own. Everyone knows when Jay is reciting Big's lines.

The whole point of Hip-Hop is suppose to be creative w/you're music & lyrics "genius". Jay somehow has found a way to bite off damn near every artist (from the late 80's or 90's) and get away with it. Dude has...you know what fu*k it you Jay stans listen/believe what you want to.

Damn, some of y'all were just itching to say some bullsh*t regardless how the album came out.

This album is dope. I just rocked it for the first time in the whip....sh*t sounded dope as fu*k. The production was insane. Miss me with the Chop crap, this is what Hip Hop should always sound like. The lyrics weren't the greatest, then again its still better than 98% of whats out now....

I listen to it in its entirety, and I gave it a 7/10. I felt on some tracks Jay was getting out shine by the production. All and all, it was solid project tho. I may listen to it a few more times to get a better feel for it, check and see if I miss some metaphors or if some of the lines went over my head.

He pays to use the lyrics lol. Bigs mom's and kids get to eat more cause of that. Smart way to keep your friends name going and help his family.

7.5/10 decent album and was enjoyable. I liked Born Sinner better but this is definitely better than Yeezus.
