The album should be solid. I really dug his verse on the first P.O.S. record.

Another free leak "State of Emergency" available here: http://tokiwright.com/

Holy shit I love this dude's rhyme style. And the beat on "Next Best Thing" is like a time machine back to 94.

I feel like people kicking rhymes at this medium-to-low speed these days don't usually have this much personality to their delivery. His inflection is super classic.

He sounds a bit like if Ahmad had a baby with Fat Lip. Is that a crazy thing to say?

he is a great hypeman. Really good at doing his thing on stage. Haven't heard much of him on recordings and have only listened to one demo CD I got while he was on tour
