    Damn why I couldn't do this interview. So Sexy was big off of Kamikaze as well. Adrenaline Rush is so underrated and under appreciated. I can remember being the 1st one on the block with that album. Everybody loved that album but I guess by industry standards because it didn't go platinum it wasn't one of the g.o.a.t. hip-hop albums. Shit Mobstability was slapping too.
