Buy this shit

if yr wondering if this new joint is even worth your time, you better get your head straight and COP THAT SHIT. More than two decades of rapping and he’s a legend who still sounds as important now as he ever has.

“High Powered” is such a great single, stratosphere-tearing synths & face talking shit on lil troy, papa reu on the hook, stuttering snares and Scarface’s old man swagger(mea culpa). Incredible single. Nothing really disappointing here at all, and what I want to say about Scarface requires more focus than I have at 7 AM. But I do want to highlight “High Note” which really shows a lot of breadth for a dude who’s known to push the envelope on his own shit so often its still remarkable when he makes something not only about the ladies but a HAPPY song about the ladies (relatively speaking), and a really gorgeous&interesting&kind of funny/quirky production job from Jake One. Oh yeah but the craziest beat has to be Scram Jones on the title track.

I dunno something about this album just turns me into a fanboy, less interested in completing thoughts and more interested in just saying ‘fuck it’ and letting the music take over — it sounds like a cop-out and if it were any other artist i’d say you’re right but fuck it, cop this album and we’ll talk some more maybe.

a classic for you on SCARFACE DAY


…um crap is that d’angelo’s mom from the wire??
