Resurrection, and Like Water, along with Can I Borrow A Dollar were classics. CIBAD had concept tracks, which alot of Albums nowadays (you know, your so-called "Crunkafied" albums") are in definite need of pursuing. CIBAD was ahead of its time without a doubt.

I think BE could've been much better, but sometimes, for the veteran that he is, lacked on certain tracks:

"Freaky like the daughter of a pastor
said I was bait for her to master"

Look at the plunge from I Used to Love H.E.R. to this. Its a better album than the shit people jam in their car to, but it wasn't up to par.
Totally agree with you. Lyrically this could be his worst album. And I have all of them except Electric Circus.
