Consequence's "Don't Quit Your Day Job"

A modest debubt akin to the style of Kanye, Consequence's career trajectory and album theme can be interpeted as a social critique on the crisis of black male purpose. I'm a fan by virtue of his pre-College Dropout mixtapes with Kanye and his early 90's flow.

Take a listen.

I've been meaning to tell you folks about the album, which is a good one in my humble opinion.

Two great tracks are "The Good the Bad, the Ugly" and "Uncle Rahiem"

The funny thing about "The Good, The Bad, The Ugly" is it's been in mixtape circulation since at least '04. Some critics argued that the use of such a well-tred song worked against the concept of a debut album.
