I think this track is dope. Wiz went in on this record. I truly appreciate what Wiz is doing for the new school Hip-Hop. He is one of the faces of our generation of Hip-Hop. Wiz is a packaged rapper, he has the whole packaged. He can rap, perform, do photo shoots,  interviews and have swag. I first met Wiz in early 2010 back when I was interning for XXL magazine.  Wiz was doing a photo shoot for the mag. He was very humble and down to earth. Much success with all your future endeavors Wiz.
