We'll see in a few years time. I didn't like Black Album when I first listened to it. But that album is seriouss..Right up there with his other 2 (BP+RD).

To me, AG is a good album, but it isn't great. Its below Black Album, but above his other works. The album feels cohesive and flows well, less Hello Brooklyn. His flow is on point, switches up his delivery, production is good, the features don't dampen the album's feel, and overall its good. But however I can't help but feel a little disappointed by Pray's "hook" and the Hello Brooklyn song. American Dreamin' also feels a little generic to me.

Standout tracks are Fallen, Success, Say Hello, I Know, Roc Boys and No Hook.

HE doesnt have no commercial hit singles...i know the laz 1 didnt either..but he had the imma save hip hop gimmick. plus he had a fa song with beyonce and a big azz marketing campaign...that topped at 1.6 mill.

i juz dont see how itz gonna do numbers... shyt is wack to me.

the album was good, better than "Kingdom Come" imo but it did have some weak songs. i mean the great songs were REALLY GREAT but the average songs were REALLY AVERAGE. nothing was overally wack tho. "Success" is one of the best records to drop this year tho, Jay & Nas sh*tted all over that beat and i loved the old school organs in it too. "No Hook", "Pray", "Party Life", "Success", "Ignorant sh*t", & "Blue Magic" was my favorite records. that "Hello Brooklyn 2.0" record was pretty hot but Weezy's verse was horrible, his hook was decent tho.
