Something happened out here today that has never happened to me before. I went to HMV to pick the album up and got this response "Sorry, we're sold out. You're like the 10th person to come in here since we sold out."

Wow.

Lol, man I just came on to say the same thing. I get paid every Friday so I usually wait until Friday to buy my CDs but I wanted this so I went today and it was sold out. Ive never had that happen to me before. The chick at the counter said pretty much the same thing. Had to reserve a copy for when they come in.
It's crazy!

I'm goin' back Monday and they should have more copies

^In all seriousness, outside of his serious dislike for Drake's music, P Tone gives the most real reviews. He keys in on the flaws people just want to overlook, but are the same people who will say it about some other rapper they aren't feeling.

I read his review all the way through, although fucking hilarious, he does raise some good points. His hook game sounds the same & for the most part weak throughout the album, the production was, for the most part, a miss & that "lamest bar:" thing he did at the end of each song was great. It's kind of like, if I told you I like Lil' Wayne's music, you guys would be like "He's fucking awful. One of the worst rappers. He has lines like, "insert corny Wayne punchline". But this "great rapper", J. Cole, just gets to say lines just about equally as bad at least once a song & it's like, "Oh, it's okay".

I'd flip your last post around & say

Yes, that P Tone review has some solid points, I'll give him that.
Also, I wouldn't say RR's journalist is praising and hyping Cole _that_ much.

^I'll be honest, I didn't read the other review. I saw the first couple lines, where he was like "straight fire, incredible lyrics", etc & I was just like...Oh, I know where this is going lol.

The reviewer wastes the first 5 paragraphs talking about Cole's backstory and the album sequencing. Last 3 paragraphs are the actual review. I agree with what he says and his rating.

Can't stop listening to lost ones. Anyone who can relate to that song knows what's up
