I've listened to a few songs. It's pretty solid.
I dont blame him for the features either, he's playing it safe. It's not oversaturated he just wants to reach
more thana few audiences. He has to feel a bit cautious as he only had 1 solo mixtape under his belt.

I respect his hustle. Hoping to see a strong follow up mixtape next year.

Looooooving the feelings being caught over Bronson not being universally liked. The dude doesn't appeal to me, his feature on 1 Train didn't appeal to me. If the dude doesn't appeal to me, the dude doesn't appeal to me. No matter how many times you say "NO HE ISN'T WHACK! HE SPITS DARTS" I will still not like his music, voice, flow, or lyrics. 
Lol your brain cells already fried, I get it.
Lol you're unable to recognize that people have different tastes, I get it.

Anyways, the features were whack. Rocky doesn't NEED to play it safe. He had a mixtape that was well received and has sold out multiple venues with only a solo mixtape. He fucked up with the features. Mainly because the features were piss poor. Secondly, he was clearly trying to appeal to the masses instead of the people who been riding with him from the start. Finally, because he didn't even stick with ASAP Mob features.

It's his SOLO album. You want it to look like Game's Jesus Piece with 2+ features on nearly every single track?

1. Scared Now feat. Meek Mill

2. Ali Bomaye feat. 2 Chainz & Rick Ross

3. Jesus Piece feat. Kanye West & Common

4. Pray feat. J. Cole & JMSN

5. Church

6. All That (Lady) feat. Lil Wayne, Big Sean, Fabolous, Jeremih

7. Heaven’s Arms

8. Name Me King – The Game, Pusha T

9. See No Evil – The Game, Kendrick Lamar, Tank

10. Can’t Get Right feat. K. Roosevelt

11. Hallelujah feat. Jamie Foxx

12. Freedom feat. Elijah Blake

13. Celebration feat. Chris Brown, Tyga, Wiz Khalifa, Lil Wayne
Deluxe Bonus

14. I Remember feat. Future & Young Jeezy

15. Blood Diamonds

16. Dead People (Prod. By Dr. Dre)

Because he didn't have 14 fucking features (if you count Kendrick twice) on there with Drake, Q, Kendrick, Bada$$, Yelawolf, KRIT, Bronson, 2 Chainz, Danny Brown, Ferg, Gunplay, Santigold and OverDoz. He had plenty of features but it was his SOLO album, you're right.

That skrillex track is gonna be a club banger in 2013. Whoever says its whack is just hating like a motherfucker. Trust me, it's gonna let all the bitches get loose and when you find a bitch grinding up on you to that song, you're gonna think back to when you thought that song was shit and be like "Dam i was mad wrong cuhhh."

Virginities will be taken to that song, foreal.

Almost all of those in 1 song though, that's different..and the song is pretty sick tbh. but yeah there should have been more of his actual crew on there

"Rocky is certainly a skilled rapper" i loled 
Rocky is a skilled rapper if you think otherwise your clearly havent listened to him. Rocky reminds me of Pac alot in the sense of how he present himself. I feel like if Pac came up in the burbs in the modern age and got into High Fashion he would be Rocky.

But thats a reach and I know alot of yall is too small or closed minded to actually give that some thought but to even call Rocky not a "good" rapper is ridiculous.

^ Pac technically wasn't a good rapper. he had a lot of fucking heart and soul and was a visionary when it came to hiphop, but his raps weren't that special. Rocky is similar in that sense. dude is humble as fuck. (yeah, ive met him)... rocky may not be a visionary or on the same level as pac, but he definitely brought a new swag to the game... Plus you gotta respect his whole stance on homophobia and racism n shit.. most rappers shit on gay people constantly.. its nice to see that rocky is a smart dude

annnnd its pretty damn obvious rocky made a real effort to elevate his lyrical game on this album. 

whatever doe, people will hate, but shits going to pop off in like a week when everyone hears it.

Trolling no sir. If you cant see it and think of Pac like some foreign mythical figure among man then you really havent seen Pac interviews and know his history. I dont feel like debating with someone who types with your caliber into an actual discussion of how Rocky is very reminiscent of Pac.

Few outstanding tracks like Suddenly and Wild for the night(even if skrillex is a faggot). Kinda dissapointing all in all, but Train made the download worth it cool

can yall nigaz stick to talkin bout Rocky and not if Tupac is technically a good rapper or not? cuz technically u prly don't know shit if u think that.. your talkin bout the niga who single handedly changed hip hop and is artistic direction and DIRECTLY influenced any rapper u can name that u think is better then him. There are those people who defend Tupac cuz they grew up bein told that he was the greatest and then there is the mufuckas who know exactly what he did and why will always be the best. We can get technical and talk about how he changed the mechanics of making a rap song and bein a rap artist but I prly lost u already so jus stick to tlkn bout this poppy ass album tht Rocky put out wit only like 3 good songs

i never completely like a whole album.. some songs are always just OK to me. or like meh i'll skip over em. you're just stating your opinion not all people completely like an entire album, and illmatic was an album that defined hiphop, those albums come like a handful of times in a decade if even... stop comparing rocky to all these guys he has nothing to do with.

i mean he didnt have a lot of complexity in his rhyme structure and shit. like biggie was a much better rapper when it came to straight bars.

yes pac had more important and influential subjects in his lyrics and spoke about relevant shit more often than not... so in that sense he was a great musician/artist.

have you listened to pac? please leave pac alone. you clearly will never understand.

pac died a long time ago it's such a shame now kids don't see him the way everybody used to.

people only recognize biggie nowadays smh it's just so reinforced by urban outfitter tees, the movie, and all the rappers now saying that biggie inspired them more so than rappers saying pac did

biggie is way more endorsed and has way more exposure and thats all you niggas know.... exposure is all it is

Pac was bigger than rap though, that's like saying MLK wasn't the greatest public speaker so he didn't have an impact on civil rights.

Rockys new album has some of his best and worst songs hes ever made imo.

Fashion Killa is about the gayest song i've ever heard, I have a hard time believing anyone enjoys that track who hasn't tasted penis.

Phoenix is pretty weak

Wild for the night.... Not my flavor neighbor. If im bumpin a track called wild for the night, its going to be the 96 version with Busta and Rampage.


But theres some great tracks on there two, 1 train, Long Live ASAP, that track with gunplay, theres two or three more bangers I can't remember the titles off the dome.

The album has tracks that are great, to shit, and everything in between. There are more good tracks on it than shitty ones, over all I like it and will be bumping it.

I just gave this another listen and Rocky reminds me of Biggie. They are both black and make rhymes about women and luxurious things 



People talkin about Rocky and Pac comparisons need to shut the fuck up
