Everything that he puts out is quality. Common is another one that’s crazy with the lyrics. Mos Def is another artist that’s definitely slept-on that’s got a lot of positive messages and lyrics and flow patterns in his music. There’s a lot of us out here in the music.”
The Philly Freezer also mentioned Nas and the G.O.O.D. Music crew. “I feel like Hip Hop is coming back around with releasing the Nas Life Is Good album and then the Nas…and Scarface record that came out [DJ Khaled’s “Hip Hop”], then you have people like G.O.O.D.
