  • shake

    This album is gonna be something serious!

  • Ill Son

    Damn, can he NOT be feature savvy, smh. Hopefully it’s worth it, ha.

    • poetic assasin

      are you serious man those features are singers if anything he should be praised for not having any features. He makes ill songs on his own

      • who cares

        Nah. A guest is a guest. Just because it’s a vocalist and not an emcee doesn’t mean he gets a pass. The only guest that’s technically exempt is DJ J Espinosa, and that’s only because he’s probably providing scratches or something. Once you exclude him Lock still has guests on nine of these 13 songs. That’s too much.

        • poetic assasin

          you guys kill me with determining when something is and isn’t acceptable smh. can’t wait to cop the album with his 9 guests and 98% of the rapping on the album done by him

          • who cares

            98% of the rapping may be done by him, but a hook usually takes up a good 40-50% of a song. So say the other eight guests–excluding R.A. and DJ J Espinosa–only provide hook support, that’s still a huge chunk of music that isn’t Lock. I’m not against having guest vocalists, but emcees need to stop relying on them so much. Write and provide your own fucking hook.

            Take Macklemore for example. His debut album had a handful of guests, but The Heist had one on damn near every song. I want to hear the artist who’s name is on the cover, not who they can get on a song. The only reason I don’t care about DJ J Espinosa and I gave him a pass is because scratches are some of the dopest things an artist can include in their music, and he’s not taking away from Lock’s spotlight.

          • poetic assasin

            I dunno I guess I just prefer someone else doin the hooks when it comes to his music which is more emotional based than many rappers. His features are not usually known artists so when I read the track list I’m not focused in on specific songs because of a feature, I’m anticipating listening to the album as a whole
