The enigmatic rapper’s debut LP is an honest and optimistic coming-of-age story about overcoming pain with the guidance of loved ones.

NAVY BLUE EDITION: new yorks underground: part #5

Navy Blue joins Earl Sweatshirt and others to solidify his music as part of the ‘jazz-tract hip hop’ sub-movement within the ever-expanding and progressing sLUms scene. What really irks me is when people say anybody part of the underground abstract hip hop scene is instantly influenced by Earl Sweatshirt. However I can’t help to say that this record was definitely inspired by some extent by the choppy, jazzy sampling of the ... read more
Wonderful! Another high quality sLums release! I've ranted and raved about how much I love this growing genre quite a bit. It's crazy to think that a movement popularized by Earl Sweatshirt has allowed me to discover excellent artists I never would have known existed. I would go out on a limb and say it's my favorite sub-genre of hip hop out there today. ...But enough about the genre itself, let's get down to the album.

[70.64] Saw it on the explore page, and I think this experimental shit is sick. The production is unique, and though the actual rapping could have had its own and stronger emphasis, this is good for pretty unknown-name artist to me.

P.S. Actually, the production carried this album

73 - Twenty
76 - With Sage
69 - Life's Riddle
65 - Simultaneously Bleeding
70 - Hari Kari
72 - 22!
74 - Crash!
69 - In Good Hands
68 - Ode2MyLove
71 - Love is...
70 - To Give Praise!
Navy blue is my favourite color

Side Note: This is a great introduction to this artist, this album sounding is so beautiful and true to self. I'm excited what the future would come of him if he continue going thru this path. Also that Ka feature was amazing!
How nice, Navy blue, Earl Sweatshirt's long-time partner launches his project here, in which there is a lot of energy from Earl, but a

The lyrics are very conscious and concise, and the production is simple and good enough to create the tranquilizing atmosphere of this album.

I loved the samples, and I think it's a simple and solid album.

Excellent start for this Navy Blue, I look forward to a more ambitious project with greater production.
