Likewise, "Gold In " enters and leaves without any real spitting his life views. He raps: "But life goes on how ironic, If I could do it over I'd probably smoke chronic," poorly referencing in the process. He used to be blunt with his lyrics, for example on the original "If The Rap Jealous" he raps: "So good things come to those who wait. Sure, I've waited about pop-pop-pop-pop. That's four shot." .

Collaborations have always been a key feature for hip-hop albums, so when popped up on "Bulletproof Pride", I cried. Well that's an overstatement, but what on earth is doing here? This is an actual nightmare and needs to get out of it. Listening to this track summarises the album in itself. released three moderately unique albums in the last decade; it's become evident that he no longer has something to say. "70 Excuses" is a perfect example of an artist clawing for lyricism. His collaboration with on "Nothing To Loose" is the best track here. delivers a pathetic opening verse, but saves the entire album with his verse.
Country, God or the Girl is a tasteless album. The production is flat and lyricism is completely off-putting.
