More like it. (Listened to this second, making the common-enough error that the indie-label album must precede the major-label album chronologically; not so.) Once again he's challenging himself with weird beats and wrapping his flow around him, but this one works better 'cause he's actually engaging with his life--which is to say, day-to-day experience of a guy who lives in California and has more invested in being clever than in being tough. Still not as much fun as that first Freestyle Fellowship record, but when was the last time major-label hip-hop was this relaxed and witty?
