fu*k this dudes issues. Check this.. FIRST REVIEWS are the most HONEST. It is before other influence and acclimation sets in..
First reviews are what create the most honest listen.
Now there may be exceptions one could argue for, such as widely-known concept albums that need to be judged as a whole store as opposed to track-by-track.. such as GFK's 12 ways to die.. but that is BEYOND rare..
Cole , like Big Ghost said .. is the "Poor Man's Drake". When he was rapping his a.ss off and trying to keep up with the likes of Blackstar, he was a promising prodigy.. now he's just another generic a.ss rapper who contributes to the overall feeling that today's new generation of spitters is just a shell of the 90's golden era's former self.. DESPITE said artists being lyrically ahead of the aforementioned 90s area..
disgusting. Once Cole says "fu*k their system, I'm going to do me again" it'll be cool.
But, I'll still give every album a listen and unbiased chance to prove me wrong. Just dont bi*ch about people not liking it the first round through. That's your own damn fault as an artist..
