    I hear you, even though my stance on the album is still that it's very solid and his most consistent work yet. I think he's not quite on Kendrick's level of crafting songs and albums. He might have proven he's a better spitter with this one though

    I think the end of Applying The Pressure explains exactly what his aim was with this album.

    I really just think he wanted to flex on this one, hence there being quite a few songs with no traditional chorus.
    Ironically despite this I still think this is on par if not his best work because of that. It doesn't have a traditional album structure but still flows seamlessly to me.

    I do believe we will get more of an orthodox album from Cole with The Fall Off.

    I also don’t like the mixing on this , I think it’s bringing down the album a bit

    Best rap album I've heard in years which speaks volumes about the climate.

    It's A Boy is officially the next album before The Fall Off

    The Off Season looks to be the third to last album

    I wasn't sure if It's A Boy would be an actual album when he posted the list

    I'm glad he's doing that instead of using his son for a Puma press run
