ya, thats where i first started listening to Pain, you should check out his Mixtape Pree-Rings, that is mainly ALL RAP
I think hes got some pretty good flow like in the last verse of Kiss Kiss with Chris brown. When Tech rapped over that beat on The Poppers mixtape he pretty much uses the exact same rythm.
If he wrote about decent shit instead of the generic bullshit he would be alot better.
theres a song from e-40s cd where t pain sings and it actually doesnt sound like shit... I think its called we're just fuckin... but yeah its a dope song
