      Clearly u didn’t listen to the project because you’d know that the project is dope and lyrically T.I has never been better than he is on this EP.

      • el jim chapo guzman

        It’s only 4 tracks on the EP and I wasn’t entertained.

        • ilexx

          6 songs on the EP btw. At least 5/6 are good too.

          • el jim chapo guzman

            My opinion It’s only 2 good tracks on the EP to me

    Hypocrisy 101. Made his fortune from gangsta rap and now all of a sudden he’s a civil rights activist? FOH. Refund the people for the years of bamboozlement and then come talk to us about all of this “Us or Else” nonsense. Until then, no thanks!

      As if somebody who was REALLY in the streets can’t become a social activist…..

      Man I swear some of you really have it backwards. It’s 1000x better to hear it from somebody who actually knows what they are talking about when it comes to the community, rather than some square ass person who ain’t been through shit trying to tell a community of ppl they know nothing about, what they should be doing.

        I have no qualms with Kendrick, Lupe, De La Soul, Talib Kweli, Mos Def, The Roots (shall I continue?) They’ve completely kept it 100. You completely missed my point. Have a nice day.

          All I’m saying is, it’s not hypocritical to grow and show that growth in your music.

          And on top of that, the ppl who are really doing dirt or just not good in the streets, they look up to ppl like T.I and he is one of the best ppl to take a turn because T.I has stayed authentic and thorough his whole career, he can rch the ones who really need to be reached.

        I think he’s saying that you can’t be one way one time and the polar opposite the next. He lacks consistency and honesty. Now let’s see how he’s gonna promote this “Dime Trap” album. It’s only one way….

      Let us not forget that is where malcolm x started at in the streets and prison

        Horrible comparison.

    I’m wondering why Sirius XM would’ve given Elliot a job and not B.Dot because if you listen to the podcast episodes, you basically know Elliot doesn’t serve a purpose as a personality on there. B.Dot asking the best questions 95% of the time.

    Elliot Wilson’s name as a brand is bigger than the quality he now contributes to the Hip Hop community. And Elliot thinks he is more important than he is to the culture and it’s kinda funny. All the back and forth with NORE, was wack and then NORE washed the shit out of RR in the podcast lane. Before NORE, Elliot was acting like his shit is the best shit in the world, posting the charts all the time and really all that was happening is that the podcast was new really. NORE washed the shit out of u guys easily because of multiple reasons and I hope this shit has humbled Elliot a bit.

    B.Dot definitely deserves that radio job over Elliot too. It’s a damn shame Elliot leveraged B.Dot’s greatness on the podcast into his own radio show, that shits foul.

    • what we don’t know is if B.Dot really wants that lane that Elliot has in radio.

      • SMH

        Its a look so of course he would. Shit aint rocket science.

    So this is different from the podcast? But on another note salute TIP for taking a stance for what’s right. We see you brother!

    Hip-Hop is boring right now, we need G unit back.
