    Sounds like any other modern rap artist. How about some Innovation? Beats that create an empty sound and bore me to death. His flow is OK, but becomes choppy at certain times.

    Everyone will forget this album in 2 weeks when the next fad-artist comes along to visit the lowest common denominator. This guy is so desperate for attention it's cringe-worthy. Has he even used the internet before? He should know it's better to release nothing than something mediocre and now he's done that two times in a row. Enjoy being used as marking point for self-important and entitled rappers, Donald. Collapse

    This is a luxurious but ultimately hollow Faberge egg of a record. [Feb 2014, p.121]

    Because The Internet stands on its own musically. The project undoubtedly stands much taller when put in context of all the additional material released in order to create something bigger. [Dec 2013/Jan 2014, p.89]

    As a concept album on man's most abstract concept, Because the Internet is more than worth the download.
