  1. Smh. Sly deserved it! Ezra needs to be authentic. He started off his career like he had a plan, but his so called “evolution” makes him look like he is a newcomer. Ezra’s hard and rugged voice falls in the same category as Bunji, Mr. Killa and Tallpree. If he develops more control of his vocals and takes a complete assessment of his songs which sounded the best live, he will become a force to be reckoned with. This is why RickyT is always a winner even when he isnt crowned, he is the most authentic from day 1.
