This extraordinary EP elicits empathy not because it redeems Vann, or because you feel he’s been hard done by, but because it’s the work of someone who has transgressed and is telling you how it feels on the other side.

HipHopDX

Anyone looking for a proper apology from Vann will be disappointed by Emmanuel. This compelling EP is less about personal growth and more about embracing one’s demons. Instead of trying to change his public image, Vann is contemplating whether or not he should fully lean into a villain persona.

Ameer Vann's comeback EP is pretty bitter and one-dimensional.

Welp, Dom is going to be very pissed.

Following his departure from BROCKHAMPTON and nearly 1 1/2 years of silence, Ameer makes a shocking return with one of the most exciting and hard-hitting hip hop releases of the year!

Yeah, I'm not kidding. This was a great surprise, not just cause of Ameer Vann's unexpected return, but because of how sharp, consistent and hard-hitting this EP is from front to back! A lot of the content and style that you would find back in the Ameer's Saturation era ... read more

I AINT NO BOY IN A BAND I AM MORE THAN A MAN

So Ameer is back, more than a year after his forced departure from Brockhampton. And he's still a better rapper than anyone in BH is, at least on the 2 records they've released without him. I'm happy to see he's still working and creating even after being isolated from the collaborators that he had almost exclusively worked with before. Its easy to vilify people that do something unpopular but not necessarily illegal or morally wrong. I know a ... read more

PRE-EP:
Ameer has always been the most disposable member of BROCKHAMPTON for me. He's never had the best verses, best flows (he actually tended to use the same flow on a number of songs to the point where I just went "okay Ameer fuck off".) So I'm not at all excited to listen to this thing
POST-EP:
This pity party of an EP contains "feel bad for me, I'm misunderstood" lyrics and the same boring flows that plagued the SATURATION trilogy. I don't exactly know what he's trying ... read more

Let's focus on art, let's focus on the artist ...

Separating the music from the artist is still a very "complex" concept. I try to ignore the fact that an artist is a good person or not when I review an album. It's crazy the fact that in 2019 we still hated music because of the person who made it and not the way it sounds...

You should know that during the Saturation period, my favorite rapper of BrockHampton was Ameer. Writer of the best BH's verses. But is Ameer still a talented ... read more

If you didn't know already, I don't like Ameer Vann's work. I really think he was the reason the SATURATION trilogy sucked. So coming into this album, I was expecting 4-5 out of 10 for this album. My expectations were sort of high, because, what if he sort of matured a little bit in the past 2 years since he left BROCKHAMPTON and faded into obscurity. And believe, he did mature. A lot. This album is actually good. 'Emmanuel' is a great opener to the album. The song is sort of has this hardcore ... read more
