For some reason, I thought the same thing. I was expecting to hear some masamba unit type stuff, esp after the bit about intersecting jazz and hip hop was highlighted in the description. The jazzy beats in alone sounded like retreaded ground and I felt like I missed something new or exciting.
The albums ok, but as a debut album and knowing he makes raw beats I was let down a little. Starting to wonder if as a music consumer I should have expectations or just except things as how they come.
