“Definitely, substance of the music is down. That’s why me myself, I listen to old cds. I like the new artists, and all that but I dont think I could start listenin’ to them until for a few more years. I listen to the old cds. Like I’m stuck on them. Im stuck on Puns album, Bigs album, Reasonable Doubt and Cuban Link. Im like an old head.”
