haven't stopped listening to "his pain" since it was released. have to let the other songs sink in, but it's definitely getting rotation.

and some people didn't get their track 2.

seems like it's getting extremely positive impressions across the web from the early birds though.

as well as pretty damn good vocalist.

It was just a matter of time to where he got a cohesive, well produced project out, im so glad he took his time on this one (been waiting on PN&L for like 2 years since I first heard The New Beginning mixtape).

Cats like Frank, BJ, and Janelle are driving R&B, its good times errbody

>This shit goes.

I bought this today. I love taking chances on supporting cats just to see if I stumble across some goodness. If I don't dig it, I bite my tongue and shake a fist at whoever 'put me on' to it. and then there's good stuff like this.

If I had to hate, some of the songs are guilty of sounding unfinished (like they stop one verse in or without telling a full story), but BJ is like a less squirrelly Bilal with the occasional turn into delivering lines like D'Angelo WITHOUT THE MUMBLING. Maybe a little Hollister too.

I like his delivery and his writing. And yes..some of these songs just 'sound good' plain and simple..even if the world isn't set ablaze, it is fly music.

I will certainly look into whatever else he had out already and look for future stuff. He's earned that fo sho. And I've brought him up to 2 folks already. Between working, watching Breaking Bad (I'm on ep 3 of Season 2..cray!), and trying to get ready for the office gig tomorrow, this has been on at the desk and in the ride all day.

Schoolboy Q, CunninLynguists, Ab-Soul, Kendrick Lamar, Jay Rock, Freddie Gibbs, Dom Kennedy, Pac Div and David Banner just to name a few have hooks or verses from the guy.


Promotion is probably MAD light on this album, though, because I had NO IDEA what this thread title was about until it got a couple posts deep.

its great how its NOT influenced by whats hot now.
it does feel unfinished and a little like a mixtape, however, this is not a bad thing.
the whole vibe of the album, something i can listen to whatever mood im in.
the world is a ghetto is on constant repeat, i love hearing those little samples drop in and out.

I already googled the mothafucka so you wasted 3 minutes of your nonvaluable
time dedicating it to me with a link I didn't need. Thank you for thinking
of me though.


Now continuing........


Mentioning the artist's name is good pub for the artist. I shouldn't have
to google the artist on a music discussion board because people want to
be cryptic and feel like they're part of some exclusive club. Say who
the artist is and provide links to effectively turn folks on to it.
Everbody who sign on ain't got time to be googling everything in every
post they come across. Now gone somewhere boy.

because you had time to create an alias, but googling apparently takes too long for you...

It's not the Lesson's responsibility (or any message board) to blow up an artist... There are people who get paid to do that... Most people in this post knew who the artist was based off the album title... If an artist wants to get promoted on OKP, he should pay ?uest some bucks and get banner put up...

I mean here I am arguing with you and I didn't realize you struggle so
hard with reading comprehension. I feel like a bully now. My bad.

doing something simple and then complaining about it makes you lazy in my book... I'm sorry you can't comprehend that...

It's being cute and insidery for no reason. Just name the damn artist. Some of us don't know who is being discussed and don't want to open another tab to go Googling just to figure it out.

it's definitely guided by a similar vein of weirdness/abstract/structure lacking vibe, but not as much as N,U. was and the fact that it's all original instead of some hellaciously boring rewrites helps a lot. I could do without the song that's mostly samples but the rest of it is really good, sometimes great. R&B cats take note.

Frank might be a better songwriter but the missteps on NU are cringe-worthy.

A few songs on the album drag a liiil bit, but yea, with some polish he could be a Top 3 R&B cat in the game. Literally NONE of his shit has that over the top trendy feel like most R&B I hear.

it popped up on the ipod randomly this weekend and i revisited the whole album, and it's snuk into my top 10 of the year.

this is the best of the album IMO (and how i sequenced it):

Fly Girl Get'em*
Good Luv'n - can't believe i aint dig this at first
White Picket Fence Interlude
Goof Love - or this
Sex is the Best Breakfast*
The OtherSide*
I Want You Back
Hood Stories Vol. I
His Pain*
Kin Kong*

*are easily some of my favorite songs of the year

for HIS content and style (and with the MAJORITY of R&B albums) 10-12 songs are all that's necessary. as of right now i do believe it's better than channel ORANGE and wish this post had more replies. his voice is fantastic and he phrases his words/lyrics very well. the pen game could use some work and some of the snippets/interludes are unnecessary. Overall though, this is a very solid release
