i think the album is a VERY boring listen. no track is fun, though many are exceptionally good and its too polished for my taste.
also, its gimmicky as fuck.
the whole mob thing here is a gimmick and i think it cornified the gambino era.
The worst part is that skit with the black bastard talking in a fake cuban voice.
shit was horrible and embarassing.
it turned the whole gambino thing from a symbolic representation of real live events (cuban linx) to fat black men pretending to be italian (Reasonable doubt and beyond)
and this legacy gave NY the seeds that would grow to become the cornball capital of rap.
