    I strongly disagree. The Wild is among Rae's best albums. I'd put it as his third best. Venom was a decent effort.

    Claaa, thank you for writing a very interesting review. It's always great to read somebody's thoughts on an album.

    However, and I'm writing this as a friend who respects you A LOT, can I humbly suggest you read your review again? I suspect you might feel happier about keeping it up on your high quality Lost Tapes blog without the various song reviews that got mixed up with each other in the final editing process, the string of typos (they do lessen the readability of the review, sorry man) and the grammatical errors in subject/verb accord.

    I say this with the utmost respect to you. As far as content is concerned this is a great review but I think you might feel even happier about it if you combed through your own review once more to weed out the mistakes.

    As I was saying before, mad props for writing this review in any case.

    Peace,

    Hal.

    This album is pretty decent but just wasn't interested in coming back to it after the first listen. Gave it 2 more spins outta duty, and I think that'll do. Only jams that captured my attention were the silly jealous ex song with meth n the Scotty wotty jam is dope.

    I dig uey, but just didn't get into this joint.
    Check out my new live instruments track, 'It Doesn't Matter Anymore'...

    If someone liked the introduction beat, Ill Tal (the producer) posted it on YT

    Lol, I forgot how much U-God sucks as an MC.

    Not a single memorable verse. Weak beats.

    damn thats harsh lol

    i was a little disappointed that no other track seemed to live up to the opening track especially production wise. i only gave it one full listen though i gotta revisit some tracks but I didnt think it was bad

    also tbh I really enjoyed his couple tracks he released over trap beats before his album came out more than most of the album tracks. i think those kinda beats bring out his voice and charisma a lot more

    I've been listening to this album a lot just to try and get into it more ... but so far it isn't happening for me. The beats are solid but apart from the second single they could have been better. The XXX beat is straight comedy, as is the chorus on there too. Honestly, after all these listens I still have a hard time remembering most of the tracks. I wouldn't say it's a bad album (Mr Xcitement trash) but I will say it's a bland album. I thought Green Lantern would have come harder on the beats. The no name producers are meh. Also, I don't believe the hype for the opening track.

    As for lyrics Uzy came harder on Keynote Speaker, Dopium & GAR.

    Rating : 2/5. Sorry Uey.

    ^Yeah I agree with most of what u said. This album definitely isn't growing on me. Feel like I won't even go back to it at this point. Nothing stands out other than Scotty Wotty n the Wu track. Peace

    Giving it a second listen. I think the album starts off really strong (first 4 tracks). Then Elegance fucks it up. Climate is pretty good...then a bunch of meh. Jackpot is decent. I think I liked it more in my first listen...

    I think sample laws and costs have really fucked wu-tang up, they can't really get their sound right without them. I wish they could even release sample heavy mixtapes like westside/ conway and such do
