It’s a great week for rap. R.A.P. Ferreira, Kill Bill, and another phenomenal new Navy Blue-produced joint. I swear, Navy just keeps getting better and better on production, and Jah is just a perfect match for these beats.

Not my favorite Jah-Monte record of 2021, and Navy Blue's weakest production of the last 2 years for sure. JM only spits a verse per song mostly, all the features fall totally flat. Most of the soul samples are pretty dope though, however underutilize Navy Blue's compositions for more simple, stripped-down loops. He also was supposed to include 11 tracks, and without the three released as a separate single, it feels incomplete.

A concise 8-track, 25-minute LP with great Dilla-esque production from Navy Blue (as always) and charismatic delivery by Jah-Monte. Good features as well, especially Kelly Moonstone's contributions. Edit: just found out there are three other tracks these two released together on a separate single, which definitely should have been included on here (especially 'Forever Love').

Favourite Tracks: The Missing Link/The Sneaky Link*, Tried Your Best, I Miss You, Oh Nah We Locked Boo
