    Hell Hath was weak. Dont believe hype. If XXLmag gave is a L or a XL no one would be cock riding that album and you know it.

    next..

    weak track on Blu's album.
    -My World Is
    -No Greater Love
    -Cold Harted
    -Juice N Dranks
    -First Things First
    -Party of Two
    -Life's a Gamble
    -I Am
    -Blu Colla Workers

    im not saying every track is wack but when that many tracks on your album are weak then you have a wack album. Blu's main problem is he doesnt make strong verses when not sticking to a topic or telling a story. For instance on the track "my world is". Blu comes with many strong line (like his halftime line) but overall the verses were wack. MCs like Rakim, Guru, G Rap, Ace etc. can do brag verses and misc topics in one verse and still make it a strong verse. Blu lacks that. His strongest tracks are the ones where he sticks to a specific topic or tells a story (i.e. Dancing in the Rain, Good Life). The only exception to this was the first verse on Soul Amazing.


    EDIT: changed "Blue Collar Workers" to "Blu Colla Workers" and aded the i.e. part.

    i agree with you on Lord Willin but the We Got is 4 Cheap mixtape series and Hell Hath were all pure trash.

    You got it for $21? You're lucky bro!

    I got a sealed copy of one of the limited (to 1000 I think) blue editions and I plan to keep it sealed. Do you still have yours sealed bro?

    Mine is not sealed. But if we're talking about limited vinyl with limited pressings and the fly colors, yes I do keep them sealed most of the time. I got the Purple Tape re-release from Get On Down and the vinyl is purple. My copy of 'Give Me My Flowers While I Can Still Smell Them' from Blu & Exile is also sealed and has all kind of weird colors. I'm planning on buying the white LP version from Klaus Layer's upcoming 'Adventures of Captain Crook' dropping next month. I'll see if I will open that one or not.

    Nice, I wish I had the OB4CL purple vinyl! haha!

    I do keep my rare stuff sealed as well though. I have Jedi Mind Tricks' "Violent By Design" vinyl sealed and I also have an OG pressing of Ready to Die sealed!

    Album is great, 9/10 for me. One of those album I think I'll always pull out from time to time and listen straight through.
