IMO, you're an idiot. Get much out of the snippets you listened to once?

I downloaded it and even posted a link in our Non-Ignorants section, go ask.

Other than some new flows he is rocking everything is pretty lame on this album. But that's my opinion, like I said, some people like the album, some don't. I'm in the latter.

Worst Wu solo album I've ever heard. I mean, there's a few good tracks but overall it's pretty much just shit. Anyone else notice how slower Deck is on the mic now? His flow is deteriorating which is a sad sight. Rhymes are still deep, though.

I agree with Beautifulrock : this is a slow burner

listen to it once only and you won't grasp it, listen to it regularly and it will open up to you as his most solid effort to date.

Deck always tried to get away from thé wu sound on solo discs , now for the first time he managed to do just that in a quality way

If Manifesto shows Deck at his best when he thinks out of the Wu box, fingers crossed then for the Rebellion if he could make that the opposite and present us the Wu side of Deck

I mean, I already have more experience with this album than most people, just having done the lyrics, but listening multiple times, the lyrics become hypnotic and I find myself spitting out lines here and there, it really is a great album if you give it a chance. I would say it's def on par with Substance, not on the same level as say OB4CL2, but a solid 4.

I can't stand Uncontrolled Substance, the beats and Deck's performance don't cut it for me.

I didn't care much for Deck's solo efforts before this one. It is definitely the best Deck solo album to date in my opinion.

Buying a hard copy tomorrow.

Alot of good tracks, alot of weak tracks.

Iv given quite a few spins, but its not holding me in like I want it too


'Really Real' is that shit tho. One of the best joints on the album


As a whole, I'll give it a 3/5 so far. Too many cats here (Skamp...) are overrating this too much. Im still gonna buy it if I see it in stores tho, dont get me wrong

Really real has the biggest no homo moment on the album. See Carlton Fisk's last line.
