This album is a complete work of art. The rhyming, the beats, everything really is excellent on this album. Songs like 'Weak Become Heroes' or 'Turn The Page' show a musical genius ready to prove his worth. This has probably got to be - in my oppinion - the best album he has ever created, why? merely down to the fact that he wasn't under any great expectations, and also the home-made feel to it, not alot of artists recorded their album in a wardrobe did they? all in all a great album and well worth the money.

Overall a great album well worth a listen if you like it real.
