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 an album I've had to listen to for a while to get. The record carries a tumultuous energy that tosses the listen to and fro violent oscillations and riffs layered by calming synths. Hendricks' inflection and change of times reminds me of the tortured thinking we go through when we're alone. In a way, it's an album that knows its true nature and spins around in frustrating circles of rhythms and lyricism.
