On one listen to CHAMPION DEGREE…If lyrics flow and heroin beats are what you love you can’t go wrong with O The Great. With haunting mood driven vibes reminiscent of 90s RZA and flowetics that seem to take you to a 37th chamber. If rap and emceeing is the game…in its areana..The Great One is adding his flavor to the mix and taking HIP HOP forward while giving a feeling of bringing it back to the future….Now You Go figure…three thumbs up…
