This album has a relatively strong ending and an okay start, but its middle stretch, alongside its sheer length, turns out to be its biggest downfall.

FAVS: Flowers, Ignite
LEAST FAVS: Own World, Top Shelf
This is one big okay, and? moment
Pretty disappointing tbh. The afrobeat / pop rap sound doesn't do much for me with Chip. The songs with the harder hitting beats also tend to have features that don't fit the song or are just lackluster. I did like a few tracks but mainly the ones with the clean beats and chip just spitting, so in general I can't see myself returning to this one.

Fav Track: 0420
Plenty of talent on display here, if it was condensed to half an hour it would be a great project. Chip really stands out with strong word play and flows, even if the content of his bars are lacking at times. Some of the 'safer' and chart-friendly tracks could easily be dropped from this, but the ones that hit are quality.
