    Each song that has leaked has been a little better than the one before. This album will truly be a classic. I don’t mean one of these so-called “classics” that come out a few times a year (according to some people). I’m talking about a TRUE once-every-15 or 20-years CLASSIC!

  • SmokeXIntellect

  • BBB

    2 fucking dope!

  • Goose

    K’naan’s verse on the live version was my favorite part of the song. The somolian verse was cool, but his verse was soooo great on the live version, i wish they wouldve kept it.

    great song though.

  • cooloFF

    not to say this track ain’t dope…but the way ppl respondin making it sound like this is on some hip hop Mozart junk
