Album Review

With Writer's Block 4, J.R. Writer took his underground Writer's Block mixtape series way above ground by releasing it on the Warner Brothers associated label Asylum. Throwing Dukedagod's name on the cover adds some street cred since the man is in charge of Dipset's mixtape division, but this effort would earn that cred just fine without it.

This is unforgiving street music concerned only with leveling the "swaggerless."
