it’s like rex orange county but rap.
super breezy, welcoming & easy going. could use a bit more variation lyrically.

Best of his material yet, but I can't help but feel it's all a bit too childish to capture what he's really capable of

Kota produced, wrote and mixed this almost entirely by himself, which is absolutely mindblowing considering how good this record is.

He's just living in the moment.

His flow is one of the best in the game, and his conduct just puts a big smile on my face.
