 this shit rules, first carter might be a bit better because of mannie, but whatever. is iron maiden's "fear of the dark" the vocal sample in "best rapper alive" or was it reproduced, at any rate thats where its likely derived, same with the maidenish guitar hook. suprised the only slight diss in this review came about that track, i think its the best on there. "money on my mind" is the biggest letdown, easily overlooked though.

 Yeah it's pretty good but the intro stuff about Jay-Z is off. Every guest verse or remix he's trickles into he slays, in terms of batting average bar for bar he's as hot right now as he's ever been. If he's "boring" it's only because he's "retired".
