Comment: Checked this one cause I'm doing my Mello Music thing these days, and I loved about half the tracks. Another quarter are good. And a quarter are cool but not my taste. Promising potential in Gensu Dean, I'd like to hear him with just one MC tho - especially Large Pro!

Comment: I fux w/ Dean. Excited to hear this next project he just announced w/ Planet Asia. That should be fiyah. I'm in-between on this album - Gensu is mad on the beats, just gotta be careful with his mc selection.

Comment: @mcc1333 has it right. And I've been a fan of Gensu for over 10 years now. Was waiting a long time for this. Was a let down. I thought more than anything though the emcees really tarnished it. Nomadic has to be one of the worst emcees I've ever heard.

Comment: Gensu Dean has slowly won me over. The Large Pro track of course got me, but with some time I've really gotten into this more and more. Roc Marci sounds effin solid on Gensu's production. Same with Prince Po. Looking forward to more.

Comment: The lp demonstrates that not everything that comes out of Mello Music Group is quality. "Forever" is of course the stand out track (10/10 joint!) and if you already have this on vinyl then there is little else here to warrant purchasing the LP. Beats are pretty poor, no real flow or theme through the album just feels like a low budget compilation, which is a damn shame as Gensu Dean is certainly more capable than this. Perhaps he will make amends on his forthcoming 7"?

Comment: Nice album - love the production. aRon - ahh, I think you misread, homie below you said he love's this classic shit - not that it is a classic. I think he means classic sound - a la the SP12. Yeah, well, I like the record, some good tracks from classic mcs like Sadat X and Extra P!

Comment: Much respect to Gensu Dean. Great first record, I think the people hating maybe don't understand he made all these beats on an SP1200 - or maybe they don't get how the SP works. This is an amazing record. As far as MCs, I'm feeling most all of the record - even the people I hadn't heard of. I thought Blame One stood his ground even next to greats like Marciano and Sadat X.

Comment: We all know about beat legends like Preemo, Pete Rock, RZA, DJ Muggs etc... since 2000 when commercial rap was killing hip hop, we hoped the real, raw sound would emerge again with a bunch of new school beatsmiths who would either remind us of that golden age boom bap sound or show us how they can evolve the hip hop sound to rise above the shit that pollutes the radio waves. the likes of 9th Wonder, Marco Polo, Bronze Naz and more recently, Apollo Brown have breathed some much needed life in the rise of real hip hop again, others like Kno (of CunninLyguists), Oddisee, Oh No and now Gensu Dean have succeeded in evolving the sound to much more than hard drums and soulful loops. This album is fucking amazing, Gensu crafts some truly awe inspiring beats, technically perfect in it's sound and construction and nearly all the MC's compliment this to a high standard. Please give your support for this album, it might slip under the radar but this album has left a lasting imprint on me. This is hip hop for the future and Gensu along with Oddisee and Kno are a trio who will hopefully continue to evolve and show how versatile hip hop can sound, real hip hop that is.
