Ok, so this is pretty cool. Review should be up soon... the pitchfork review is seriously lol. Notable tracks:

Pretty Girls
Let it Loose

The record's pretty tight, but there's a bit of inconsistency in the production here and there.

Haha, just read the Pitchfork review, it's so funny.

"Opener "Triumph", a terrific, Afro-beat-inspired production by TV on the Radio's Dave Sitek, indicates this will be a sonic adventure. It's not particularly. "Mama Told Me" is a sort of post-Kanye reflection on how difficult it is coming up in the game"

Surprise surprise, they get wet over the Sitek tracks, drop the word "afro beat", and don't really explore anything else. Also, I think all hip hop should be described as post-kanye or pre-kanye.

Yeah that guy's seriously an idiot. Besides what you said about that line (which is exactly what I thought right when I read it), he goes on to say how the K'naan ft is good (it's not at all, K'naan sucks so bad) and how the GaGa ft "Chillin" sucks (what a complete moron, that's like one of the best beats i've ever heard).

That K'naan verse sucks so bad. I mean really bad.

he's easily one of the worst rappers i've ever heard.

I enjoyed Mixtape About Nothing, I will probably check this out soon. I'm a bit indifferent to the song with Lady Gaga, which is the only one I've heard from this.

knaan is not that bad, but i was a bit underwhelmed from the track with him just because I was so excited to hear Sitek produce a beat. 'chillin' is easily one of the songs of the year though, you guys should check out the knocks remix of it though, i like it better than the original. anyway, i'm excited to hear this whole thing, wale is awesome and going to school in dc, i can't help but get caught up in the hype and love him even more. check out this remix though:
