WEW just keeps getting better

IMHO this is his best effort to date. His raw down to earth lyrical style is highlighted with more musicality than in previous albums. Although I love all of his stuff this delivers a more engaging and maturing sound showing his growth as an artist. Not only is this a must buy but he is a must see live. You will appreciate WEW and his music a thousand times more if you venture out to see him.
