This is really a Mathematics LP, who also made Martin Shkreli's only copy of Once Upon A Time in Shaolin also, because no single song has all original members. That being said, its worlds better than A Better Tomorrow, & the OG Wu sound is in tact. Mathematics also made sure the Clan was spitting no corny bars; there was apparently a rigorous recording process.
Man, I get the hate, I'm an actual oldhead myself who grew up on conscious rap and Three 6 etc., but does hip-hop HAVE to be about intelligent lyrics? Say what you want, this LP has some dope production that slaps, that any superior rapper would love to have for their LP.
/not sure why Blu gets so much hate, either people know something about him I don't, or people don't appreciate trad. hip-hop format of stream-of-consciousness bars over minimalistic soul samples. This is like the early Blu tapes, and I think people were expecting the street-sampled complexity of the production on York.
Gucci's most radio-friendly outing shows Gucci with the most diversified flow and some of the best songwriting of his career. The amount of features disappointed me bc Droptopwop excelled w/ minimum features, but it will help this LP become his best-selling yet.
