I've seen a couple interviews of him, and he doesn't seem to be on any 'soul messiah' type thing. in fact, he seems very humble. the only possible ego thing is in the name, and apparently his cats from back home gave him the name and it just kind of stuck.
My criticism is just that the album wasn't too great, not bad, not a stellar debut, but mediocre (that and the beat jacking, which probably wasn't his fault). and that's good considering all the crap that gets released now. His next album will probably be pretty damn good IMO.
