I think his main downfall is his unoriginality. I like his music, and his live shows are great, but subject matter wise, and voice wise, he is completely unoriginal. It's gonna be hard for him to break into the mainstream with his rapping style.

But like others have said, he IS getting better. It's not a case where he has digressed/sold out as he got more popular, his really old stuff was garbage/joke shit, his stuff right before culdesac was mediocre, culdesac was good, EP was great, and Camp was great too, much more polished and professional than anything else he'd released

people keep saying this shit like musicians aren't supposed to get better, anyone who respects their craft should and will be constantly trying to improve. either way, fuck it, i've always fucked with him and will continue to.

Cant wait for the mixtape. He's definitely come a long way since Culdesac. Nice to see him getting some shine and working with other rappers.

This dude is what kanye used be talk about black people plight and given some real insight on how it feels to be a black man in these times. I have a lot more respect for this nigga especially to get down with hussle. Wish more rappers were talking about real shit that plagues are community. If him and Andre 3k did something, or even lupe I would definately support, nigga can dream tho

he's been referring to the stuff he's released through iamdonald.com as "off the mixtape"

So far that makes it "We Ain't Them" "Black Faces" and the new joint.

Beck was w/e but CG did his thing on that Silk Pillows track. Yeah the last few drops are gonna be off the tape hes been saying on his twitter. Man I want this shit to just drop already. I feel like he's building hype on some Kush&OJ type shit.

really? my bad lol i heard he wasn't going to include any of the new shit, that most of the tape would be previously unreleased. even so, thats only like three tracks, if the mix tape is coming out as soon as he says it is, there still may be like 10 tracks we haven't heard yet.

EDIT: few posts up, he tweeted about those songs being on the mixtape, my bad.
