A project like this reminds me why mixtapes are so precious.

"Days Before Rodeo" might have shabby mixing, the Cudi and Kanye influences are apparent, it contains some of his most embarrassing lines... but I'd be lying if I said it didn't have some terrific highlights.

Classic Tape.
One of the best mixtapes of all time.

It may not be as musically evolutionary as Rodeo or Astroworld, but every song on here is still it's own fun experience and there's no filler. Production is fantastic as always and Travis' performance is grandiose.

A mixtape full of earworms.

➕ Drugs You Should Try It, Mamacita, Days Before Rodeo The Prayer, Don't Play, Zombies, Sloppy Toppy, Basement Freestyle, Quintana Pt 2

A really solid project from Travis, it is easily one of his best projects. Many tracks are easily repayable and are very enjoyable. The album starts stronger than it ends though as after the track "Zombies", the album's quality really decreases as the track "Sloppy Toppy" starts as it is one of the worst songs on this tape and the Migos really ruin that track. After that track its mostly filler. Overall the project is great though.
