Hey, this might still be a bad opinion, but did Shawn Cee say that you get no pussy? Yeah, didn't think so.
It seems like a lot of people are relistening to this and are enjoying it more afterwards. I decided to do this but only felt pain. My overall enjoyment has stayed the same, and the music quality itself is still bad to me. I understand the appeal now. But the album just doesn't cater to my tastes, and I've learned to accept that. Anyways, the review still holds up my opinions, so I won't edit it.
The act of being overrated is if that person or thing is considered to be better or more important than they really are. Example: Playboi Carti is an overrated artist! He sucks!
Are y'all kidding me? Is this what you call good music?
First of all, I'm not a huge fan of being the guy with unpopular opinions, but this is one of the ones I've never really understood. I don't believe Playboi Carti is a good artist. There are a lot of factors to this argument.
Before any of you call me wrong, or that I have bad taste, let me preface this first. I do not care about what you like, if you enjoy this that is perfectly fine. All I want to do is express my opinion on how this is just bad, overrated, and overhyped. Hate me if you want, I couldn't care less.
Alright, here's what I don't like.
The performances... They're bad! His vocal performances are honestly either half-assed or they just sound terrible! The only redeeming factor of Carti is his production, and with his voice he's actually just ruining it. "They can't understand me, I'm talkin Hieroglyphics!", is that really something to boast about? Some of his performances are just laughably bad with his "baby voice" (who's idea was this, they should get fired immediately), and his regular voice is just bad as well! Once again with this project, the production carries. Carti isn't the artist, it's his producers.
I like fun lyricism, it's a great mixup but this is just too over the top. I can't stand when rappers speak on the same topics every single time without any switch up in delivery or anything. Just comes off less creative. It's not fun, it's just dumb, and that's not the same thing. From a musical standpoint, you have to somewhat find that line where it's fun becomes bad, and Carti definitely crossed that line as this is just an hour of that.
Why is the mixing so bad? It's like so bad it's funny! But that doesn't make good music at all... How could you have worked on this album for what, 2 years? And you come out with this? Clearly Carti fans should've waited longer cause this was nowhere being ready for a release. The mixing ruins the production, which is the only redeeming factor here. Good job Carti, you fucked up again!
Now lets talk about one of the biggest problems that doesn't have anything to do with the music, but the release. I honestly feel bad for the fans who had to wait 2 years, constantly being teased to get absolutely nothing, then to it dropping just to be really bad! Does Carti even care about his fans? Y'all hated him a week ago for this stuff and sided with Judah now you all love him again?
All of the features underperformed. Every single one. Even with that, Carti is still the worst on the album, no doubt. Each of them are mediocre to bad, and when put in this album, it's just recipe for disaster. At least you outperformed Carti, which isn't hard to do, at all.
I genuinely can't stand his album honestly, Mario Judah did it better, I don't care what you say!
Other than the production, this album is pretty bad. You all complain about how bad NAV is but you'll bump this.. I'll never understand this guys appeal but whatever. I do hope you all enjoy it more than I did.
Alright, done with my rant, you can rip me a new one in the comments now.
