Pitchfork gave this a far better review than the new Foo Fighters. As far as mainstream pop disguised as another genre goes (Foos, rock; Wiz, rap) this cannot touch the new Foo record.
Although the FF record is a pop album, it's good and has enough actual rock to get away with it.
This is too poppy for the kind of rap album it's billed as. And lyrics are so much in rap, so having such poor ones is inexcusable.

All that being said, my basketball team won the championship this year and wear Black and Yellow, so that's become a bit of a theme song. The rest? Don't touch it.

He gave the lyrics a 4.25.
yeah, he gave it a weak score, but i wouldn't have even rated it that high just in comparison to his previous work. and creativity should be lower.

This was better than I was expecting it to be (especially after the release of Cabin Fever).

It still has songs that I will listen to years from now but I doubt I'll spin the whole album past this year.

Domo Genesis' Rolling Papers is better. I mean that album isn't amazing, but better than this.
This.

Domo is sorely underrated.

Everything past Kush and OJ was a huge disappointment.

no, seriously, score's way too high. lyrics are a huge part of rap and if the album doesn't have decent lyrics, i cannot in the right mind say that it is a good album, not even 75% worthy, no matter how "slick" it is. the lyrics are pathetic. wiz sold out and gave the people what they wanted: a bunch of shallow songs about weed, bitches, and champagne over smooth, radio-friendly instrumentals.

by the way, you have no idea how much his opener pissed me off. saying “And they say all I rap about is bitches and champagne" then proceeding to make songs that ALL talk strictly about just that, made me lose all respect for him and cannot listen to this record at all. absolutely pathetic compared to the freestyles and mixtapes he put out back in the day.

This review made me ignore my gut instinct and check out the album.

I wish I didn't. Oh well.
