Phenomenal production, one of his most cohesive solo records. Not a bad song on here. Best cuts: Stugots ft. Willie The Kid, Boat Shoes ft. Gangrene, Ocean Prime ft. Boldy James, Sand Castles ft.

This same vibe combined with Street lyrics paints at times hilarious pairings. I had a perpetual movie of New York rappers with Tims on in the Bahamas
