Um, other than the Neptunes, I'm not sure. They produced the album and Pharrel guests on most tracks. I mean, it's Coke Rap but it's excellent and flawless. I'd put Pusha T and Malice up against Lil Wayne any day.

It isn't like... chopped and screwed sorta stuff is it?

No, it's a got a great flow to it. The real high points are the rhyming interplay ("some days I wasn't able, there was always cain") and the driving Neptunes beats.

I'm going to start the deluxe edition of this, but I'll probably finish it tomorrow.

Neptunes make rap standable. It doesn't matter how boring Pusha-T and Malice are; Clipse has it made.

Hello again! Am now listening to Skullflower's "Form Destroyer" - "Elephant's Graveyard" is one of their genius tunes - 11 minutes of sheer psychadelic noise heaven.
