From a New Zealander having heard Brad all through his career... I can only say he gets better with every release. Well worth the buy on iTunes or physical, whichever way it's simply incredible... And not something to be listened to on low volume.

I just heard the song 'Hold On' today on Air1 - downloaded the album and have to say it's really good. I'm not a big hiphop fan but there's something melodic and catchy about this stuff -and the message really came at the right time for me..

This is a pretty good EP. to the likes of KJ-52 and Manafest. In my opinion it is not quite as good as either of them. the best track is hold on. there is much room for improvement but it is still good.
