Ben Marcano Wow this whole project is amazing I bought the LP after the first 3 tracks, but hands down Cold Breathing Out is #1 the beat and lyrics are on point! Keep making this art! Favorite track: Cold Breathing Out (feat. Chris Orrick).

Faheem Lea I've never heard a rapper that can have so much bravado, and yet can give you personal glimpses of his life while maintaining a fierce rhyming style with such braggadocio like Verbal Kent, and then to have the same kind of fire in Chris Orrick who compliments him well. Hey, wait a minute....these are the two guys from Ugly Heroes! Don't think that this album gets you all off the hook from delivering us up another Ugly Heroes album! 😂 Great production by The Other Guys by the way. Favorite track: Band Logos On My Right (Apollo Brown Remix).

Damien Perry I can always count on The Other Guys to bring the beats that make my neck sore, but this project is definitely one of my favorites. It’s great to hear Ugly Heroes on faster BPM because their style seems to lean better on the higher BPM, even though their subject matters seem to be lower BPM material. This whole album has high replay value
