With My Soul :: The Alchemist & Budgie f. Action Bronson, Aston Matthews & J. Rocc


I get what The Alchemist is trying to do by trying to build excitement around the purchased physical CD again, but I highly doubt making people wait for a physical disc to ship in 2014 and charging $38 for a double album and G-pen is going to make an impact.  It will just make people not buy it.  What if you don’t want the G-pen?  What if you don’t want a physical disc?  Ultimately, the product is the music itself and you’ve got to respect that user may not care for all the excess or to pay more for it than they did for a double album when Wu-Tang Clan or Biggie did it.  Anyway, until The Good Book is available at a reasonable price (or for free) digitally, Ill just have to rock with this and the other single from it.
