This is commons sophomore album, and I gotta say, he needed this. After his first album, he needed something that was good to truly catch peoples eye, and he definitely did it. This album is so good, the beats are awesome, almost every song was great, it was just such a good album.

Favorite Track(s) - I used to love H.E.R., Resurrection, Book of life, Nuthin' to do

Least Favorite Track(s) - Orange pineapple juice, Sum shit I wrote

Amazing, better than LWFC
