he needs to be on xxl, man is the real deal in ny drill, "The Pioneer".
This, it just goes hard. "Twirl Girl" and "Careers" are definitely weak, especially the former. The rest are straight NY drill. Lyrically, I find this project to stand out from other NY drill, even though they lyrics are somewhat similar. 22gz' delivery is so strong. However, flows are chopped up there's little to no versatility. Overall, this is good sophomore mixtape and is propelling 22gz in the right direction.
Pop Smoke and Fivio Foreign minus literally any character and charisma. Listenable, but not much more than that. The production is lifeless and just doesn't create the same menace that some of his contemporaries do. 22gz stays in the exact same range across the entire album and adds nothing to a style that can be boring to begin with.

Best Songs: No Questions, Cash App
The Brooklyn Drill thing is an interesting concept but 22Gz plays hard into the clichés of the genre instead of expanding on them. The unchanging flows, constant descriptions of violence without any greater purpose and standard UK Drill production make this just a typical UK drill album but preformed by someone in the states.
