I can’t say that this album left any sort of positive or negative feeling. It’s 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne just sort of lazily rapping over a trap beat, both of them delivering a couple hilarious one liners but for the most part just not being too exciting to listen to.

Best Tracks: Bounce, MFN Right, Bentley Truck
Worst Track: Smell Like Money

GKMC is an album that I really didn’t have an appreciation for because of how much I loved TPAB and how familiar I was with DAMN. But damn, GKMC has to have some of the best storytelling ability of any album ever. I still believe TPAB to be the superior album, but GKMC proved that I really need to spend all the available attention I have on the music I’m listening to when I’m listening to a Kendrick Lamar album.

Admittedly, Music to be Murdered By is a mixed bag with a whole lot of extremely corny lyrics all over it, but Eminem’s flows, lack of focus on the response to Revival and Kamikaze to an extent, and well placed features on the album make it as good of a listen as the best parts of Kamikaze, and an infinitely better listen than Revival.

Premonition - Intro is a pretty uncomfortable start to the album, but maybe not in the way Eminem intended. The album does set up a pretty mean bass beat ... read more

OK, I know this band is one of the most hated on groups in the mainstream, and for good reason to some extent. The Click was a very mixed bag with more good than bad, and OK ORCHESTRA was uh, in a word unlistenable. But Neotheater receives a bunch of needless hate from people for relating to listeners with a pleasant enough, if not cheesy aesthetic that a lot of listeners will likely find at least some emotional grounding in. Yes it's basic, and yes it sounds like a cop out of Jon Bellion and ... read more

Lil Wayne’s mixtape Sorry 4 The Wait is the mess that everybody complains about TC4 being. A mix of boring lyricism, weak flows, and beats that at times can bore you to tears. I imagine this is what people who hate rap imagine all rap is like.

Best Tracks: Anti-Hero, Lil Romeo, Grove Party
Worst Track: Throwed

About

My name is Josh, I specialize in Hip Hop reviews but I am still ready to review anything!

I also host a Discord server where we listen to new releases every so often. It's newer so it might be a little clunky as we start up, but here's the invite: https://discord.gg/2kJYQ3j9

All grades are out of 10

I only do lists about LP's (not mixtapes, ep's, compilations, etc.)

I do simple reviews for regular listens. For albums that were especially compelling I sit down and do a track by track analysis
