CRITIC REVIEWS

XXL

Effected ... confirms that Cozz has more in him than just straight bars. He continues to tell his own story but through new flows, different hooks and an advanced way of making rap songs.

HipHopDX

Genre inconsistencies aside, Effected is a clear statement Cozz doesn’t just want to be the conversation with the best rappers. He wants to steer the debates.

Exclaim!

Effected deserves props for its altruistic insight on the ups-and-downs of being an artist, and for Cozz's nuanced storytelling. There's room for improvement for the melodies and beats, even though the subtle instrumentals help amplify Cozz's voice and his champion storytelling.

Pitchfork

He’s precocious enough to examine himself and the dynamics affecting him, but still too young, or too inexperienced, to articulate a distinct artistic vision.

Even though I think this album is average at best, I still think it was a decent album. I liked Kendrick and Cole's feature on the album and Cody's flow on the album was fresh. However, I think if he tried to distinguish himself a little more he would be more recognized. The first song on the album talked about how he thinks he can save the rap game but no one has heard of him...I think that is because his sound isn't as unique yet.
