Cordae - From a Bird's Eye View
Jan 14, 2022

“Shiloh’s Intro” is the best song because Cordae isn’t on it. There’s not a single original idea on here, and while Cordae is a fine rapper, he’s not all that versatile nor do his performances have all that much personality. The closest we get to seeing a personable performance from him is when he sings on “Chronicles,” and his sing rapping style is trash. This project feels like every mediocre quality of J. Cole and Logic were sucked up and spat onto mildly above average, passable beats. Some of the features are cool, though, and I imagine it would be a good background album to take a nap to. It’s not even necessarily bad; it just feels uninspired. Seriously, this record could have dropped five years ago, and no one would have batted an eye. Cordae is behind the times and trailing the pack of his equally mediocre contemporaries.
