This album isn't doing anything particulary new, but what it is doing its doing very well. Its solid. Bronze might be starting to hone his own sound more and more (but damn the kid likes trumpets!), all the mcs are capable. This is higher quality Wu affiliate music, I don't think any fans on this website would be disapointed if they copped this. We dont need no hooks.
