here are my top 4 quotes from this album:
4) “your body language is remedial”
there are a lot of specific instances of petty shade on this album (“lazy eye, no biggie” “in the future other ni$$as playing football with your son”) but this general one is hilarious.
3) “i apologize, because at your best, you were love”
is he actually, finally acknowledging aaliyah, all these years after her death?
2) “daddy, what’s a will?” or “daddy, what’s a whale?”
i mean, i’ve listened to this numerous times, and i don’t know which babygirl is saying, but either is perfect. considering that it segues into a track about legacy, it could be her plotting for his early death. conversely, she could just be fucking five years old.
but khaled‘s kid is already an executive producer of an album so….
1) “everything is chaka”
in light of the current challenge (nobody beats issa and regina-no one even comes close) i think it’s worth noting that this child raps better than a lot of folks with real records out.
also, it means that half of my favourite quotes come from the on the run superchild, and i’m fine with that.
overall-it’s a great album, best and most listenable in a long time (i didn’t think we were coming back from magna carta, tbh).
also, i got it from the library-on cd.
