If Kanye creates a new sound, if Clipping bring the noise, if those no longer with us drop the first ever collaborative mixtape from Heaven, ‘Veteran’ will still be one of, if not the most, substantial hip hop albums of 2018, that’s how damn good it is.

Veteran is sure to be one of the most in-your-face, off-the-wall and creative rap projects of 2018.

It makes for a breathless album, one that takes white-hot riffs and the most distasteful parts of our national politics, chops them up, and somehow scatters them perfectly into place.
