I probably shouldn’t admit this, but I’m old enough to be your father. Hell, in West Virginia I’m old enough to be your GRANDfather! So, I remember when raps about relationships tried to be seductive, like LL Cool J before his mom told him to punch you in the face. I’ve always had a soft spot for rappers who are truly “real”–not ones that “keep it” real by telling warstories that may (or may not) have ever happened to them. If you like autobiographical rap about stuff that actually happened–hearts getting broken, missing people, etc.–then this is for you.
At least check out “Won’t Change,” below. That’s the one that really sold me on this album.
