  • turftalka

    @olugbam he rapped on Hard Times, but besides that I think he isn’t all over the album contrary to what other people believed but this wasn’t really Black Thought’s type of music anyways so I understand.

    But damn Kirk, that was some crazy ass guitar. This was some great shit, I’m goin to cop the album 4 sure.

  • diandre pickett

    new title “i can’t sing for shit”….anybody would sound good with the roots backing…sounds like he’s tryna do his best anthony hamilton impersonation..fail

  • Shark One

    Did this dumbass just say John Legend can’t sing? Damn.

  • Yohance

    Captain Kirk should be considered as one of the illest guitarists of this generation. I’m just sayin.

  • does anyone have an mp3 rip of this by any chance?

  • DontGetIt

    I really hope this is the actual length of the track and not just an elongated studio performance.

  • SuperUp
