Not sure how I feel about Fear of God 2 being his debut solo LP, if he's releasing it like that now. And why isn't it on G.O.O.D.?

That new Black Star was so good, didn't even know they were working on anything.

And pretty stoked that NBC employs at least three rappers.

Furthermore, I'm digging new GCH. This is no Stereo Hearts, and there's hope for this album yet!
