Wonder why. Anyway, his new record doesn't suck. That Girls song is really weak, though

After his best album since the 20th century, there's no way I'm not gonna be disappointed by this! LIG was a top five album for last year.

Indifferent to this. Thought that last one was a misfire. But I only thoroughly enjoy Royce out of the four. Still, it's a bad sign when BOTH Skylar Grey AND Alex Da Kid aided tracks are two of the better songs.
