    Reinforcements was “just a reminder to download his previous mixtape “Where’s My Rhymebook”

  9. lets see how it goes

  10. Well Nino Bless was put on the back burner and I’m not sure when I’ll be taking this one off play. This tape is AMAZING!! I’m only 8 tracks in and this is better than any mixtape I’ve heard in recent memory. This is one of those rare occasions where the music, lyrics, and vibe of the overall project mesh so well that you hope the album doesn’t end. “so muhfuckin soulful!”

  18. This mixtape is too fuckin fresh!

  19. @Steve_O

    yeah, i think it’s corny when rappers say that, because most of them are lying. they listen to other rappers…they just feel it’s cooler to say they don’t. the same way everyone went through their whole “i’m not a rapper” phase. that was why me and Pro used that on the hook to “The Rapture”…it’s so obvious that we’re rappers…LOL

    Peace & Hip-Hop

  20. what’s this? new mickey:

  55. this shit is DOPE… and no, i’m not saying that to be like “oh he’s just another artist nobody knows about that I can clam they ain’t up on.” glad I woke up and got some sense… lol hopefully niggas stop sleeping on cats like him, Nero, Tiron, and U-N-I yo. This is very soulful, lovin’ it.
