ProIncredible Lyracist, definitive style and presence

ConsHe's done better

The follow-up album, 'In My Lifetime' was also successful but had several weak tracks, therefore I bought 'Hard Knock Life' not really knowing what to expect. The album begins in fine style. After the intro...

ProLots of good lyrics
