I prefer Dirty Acres to this LP but this is still great. Great track is Brain Cell with INS sample.

10/10 best album released in the 21st century (so far)

So amazed by this album I had to do a full review

Where Will You Be?" - Cool intro, it sets the vibe.
"Since When" - A fantastic entrance into the album. A sick tempo changing beat along with sick rapping. (5/5)
"Nothing to Give" - A dark beat with some deep lyrics and a good chorus. (5/5)
"Caved In" (featuring Cee-Lo Green) - A cool funky beat along with some great rapping (5/5)
"Hourglass" - This song shows Kno's genius, and amazing beat with some good rapping. it still gets a 5 from me. (5/5)
"Beautiful Girl" - A beautiful song about a girl Jane, very obviously marijuana. (5/5)
"Inhale (Interlude)" - Cool interlude once again about marijuana.
"Brain Cell" - Awesome piano beat and Kno gets a verse! (5/5)
"America Loves Gangsters" (featuring Tim Means) - Didn't really think this fit in with the rest of the album, though the speech at the end puts it in perspective. Still gets a (4.5/5)
"Never Know Why" (featuring Immortal Technique) - A deep piano beat met by deep lyrics. Technique kills it. (5/5)
"The Gates" (featuring Tonedeff) - Probably the song that has the most impact in hip hop. Beautiful song about a mans life and his denial into heaven. (5/5)
"Damnation (Interlude)" - A very necessary interlude that gives a transition from the gates to hellfire.
"Hellfire" - An insane beat along with sick rapping. (5/5)
"Remember Me (Abstract/Reality)" Fantastic instrumental, I really wish there was a verse or two on this. (5/5)
"What'll You Do?" - Nice acoustic beat, along with lyrics about the struggle. (5/5)
"The Light" (featuring Club Dub) - A beatiful outro, only about 45 seconds of rapping but it still gets a 5. (5/5)

The album is totally CLASSIC

I remember hearing that they had stopped pressing copies because they weren't receiving money for the albums sold. The distributing company fucked them over hard. No more copies are being pressed until they can get the rights back and then they're gonna re-release it like they did southernunderground and will rap for food.

I'll believe it when I see it I guess. They don't currently own the masters do they?
