Some more savage music from Gates, nothing out of the ordinary from him. Rico Love comes through with a good chorus, and then a terrible verse. All of the other guest verses are garbage too. Worth a listen if you're into savage music.
man this is the Gates i miss
This guy's message says one thing but his voice and his musics' mood says another. One of the most original new rappers delivers a classic moody story about love, moving weight and making it out of the hood. Creative, soulful, hard, one of the best hip-hop stories being told in 2014.
Solid effort from Gates leaning more towards a mainstream feel about the album and its delivery but Gates still spits and groans hard, even though he doesn't get out of his comfort zone. Its only a mixtape though!
