During the conversation, the 27-year-old Chicago native compared Justin s new project to Michael Jackson s 1979 classic album, Off The Wall.

"I feel like we should talk about how fire your album is," Chano begins, before explaining his thoughts about the singer s new album.

He then makes the polarizing statement that has many MJ fans up in arms. "I will say, this is no cap at all, I said this to you in Chicago, it s some of the best music I ve heard, period," the 2014 XXL Freshman continues. "It reminds me of when Michael Jackson made Off The Wall. Everybody s who s listening... I promise you, it s literally groundbreaking music."
