The Stop

"I spit that uptown-body-rock-rolley-hop, and will a nigga ever shut me down? prolly not. Cause ever since I was a young lad I crushed emcees, kickin' ass takin' names at the trolley stop."

I ordered this album online at best buy along with the Electric Laser album from Giant Panda, and i was more excited for that than this one. As it turns out The Push was sent to me first, and i listened to it and i didn't really like it at first, but i forced myself to listen to it more intricately. Turns out this CD is one of the best investments I've made so far in my 17 years of living. It has even been labeled one of the best hip hop albums of the 2008 summer. Every song has a complete explanation behind it. This album is just really fucking good, if your a real head this should be a part of your collection. Nuff said.

Get It!

I strongly encourage the supporting of artists. If you like it, buy the album! The packaging is really nice.

**This download comes with a few extra bonus songs that are not on the original album. The track listing is based on the actual album that is in stores. The bonus tracks include, Get Funky, Shining, The Pressure (on the real album this song is called Weight and has a different beat), Here We Go, and Cool Down.

I mos def agree...Lately its been hard for me to get into an album, something that has never been a problem before. But, this album is def one of my favs of this year. I love all the lyrics and the beats. It seems like Raashan and I have been going through the same struggles lately, so the track Peace has been very inspirational to me.

If you wanna hear the track Peace along with other good tracks from other dope artists, hit me up at:
