Very impressed.  8/10.  Good vintage sound.  Lots of keepers on here and definitely in my top 5 this year.

I gotta check this out. Mega and large pro could be deadly.
Some good looking features on there and 11 songs usually means little to no filler.

i need to listen to it some more but it's a bit disappointing, Mega's always on point but I was expecting more storytelling, the songs are too short and the production is overall a bit underwhelming. still copping it.

edit : the female vocals are pretty annoying, that's too bad cause the songs are otherwise dope

This shit a classic to me. Very vintage beats with Mega sayin alot of real shit n still keepin lyrics tight. Only thing I didnt like so far was Natures weak verse on D.U. n the albums short length. Other than that virtually flawless.

Though I walk thru the valley of death
I neva got lost or took cowardice steps
I move honorably, gained a lot of respect
Solved poverty but wouldn't trade God for success
In fact, maybe I'm too advanced for crack babies
My impact is similar to Basquiat paintings
Visually fascinated, reality rap, not the fabricated
Will have you anxious to sell weight but Feds are patient
Like architects, buildin cases
The foundation is information
I give it, my lyrics ain't easily assimilated
My pen is crazy, I went from livin' on the edge to the realm of greatness
Willed into existence, this is continuation of
Skill revealed in music, we originate it
In places full of napped hair melinated
descendants of slaves who found ways to elevate it

Killed it.

i was expecting songs ala "fallen soldiers", but yeah Mega's still sharp lyrically,

my favorite songs so far :

Honorable
Rap Basquiat
Home (even though it's more of a Black Rob song than a Mega one since he only spits like 8 bars)
Reflection
Mars

Short @ around 33 mins, needs a few bonus cuts to top it up.

With Project Pat in your avatar GTFOH LOL. You cats that don't listen to the lyrics in a song expose yourselves when you say bull shit like I don't like the chorus. You want some goofy ass hook you can sing all day long go listen to one of those retards like Lil B or Gucci Mane. This is how Hip Hop was meant to be. Dope inspiring well thought out lyrics that actually mean something over head nodding thumping beats. Its a simple formula. If you dont like it you just not as much of a rap fan as you think you are.

You see the politics in hiphopdxs review tho. They rank it lower than Commons half ass album because Common aint dissin the industry and the infrastructure like Mega is. All he doin on his album is talking about Chicago. Any person with Common Sense(lol) can hear how much more superior Megas album is. Look at the User reviews on DX. Damn near perfect but editors gave it a 4. LOL Exactly what Mega is talkin about on the album.
