Rating this as the non extended version that I have on Spotify, because yes I do prefer the shorter version.

This is one of my favorite songs of all time. I don't remember how exactly I found this, and I surely didn't know Savannah at the time, but she absolutely hooked me in with one of the most beautiful singing voices I've ever heard. The r&b production is stellar, the perfect use of crescendos and beat switches/drops hit infinitely harder at night or high, and it brings out the ... read more

It's pretty easy to tell that "Yeah, this was made high", but when you're not sober then you kind of get it. I love the jazzy, psychedelic and vibey, late night production, but there's a lot of songs that aren't quite something you'd listen to at night, when it's sunny, when you're high, or when you're sober; It's a whole frustrating middle ground of "what mood can I play most of these songs?" because they have really good production but difficult to return to. However, I ... read more

Talk My Shyt & Temporary are decent songs, nothing too memorable but I do love the trap/Kill Bill siren off Temporary. But the song that easily takes the cake is Chains; That should be a stoner exclusive song and played at every single sesh. This rating is primarily just off that one fantastic song lol.

Next level chill. The production and the flows both set the perfect relaxing vibe for an album that's so therapeutic for late night drives. Aaron May has one of the best voices that work for when he's nearly yelling like in Let Go, or detailing the midnight hustle like on Cream. Hope to hear more of him in the future because for a 19 year old making songs like Dreams, In Love, Let Go, Cream, & I'm Good Luv, Enjoy this early in his career is insane. Please get high and listen to the first 5 ... read more

A little long, but the dark & gloomy production makes for some essential night driving tunes. Smino has such a buttery smooth delivery that makes many songs so easy to chill and enjoy. Still waiting on more Smino because he had like a top 15 verse of the year off THIB and he's teasing new stuff that I desperately need.

A large amount of people believe this is Earls best and I can see how that may be the case, but the production is often lacking on Doris. For Earl's first real album, the features are fun, the delivery set the stone for a lot of the abstract hip-hop we see today, and there are plenty of beats and great songs off this project. I just don't return to it as often as others because I feel it's his most inconsistent. But the whole album is pretty solid, just not my first choice.

However, Burgundy, ... read more

Appreciate it. I just like good music period. Especially hip-hop. Good is Good whether it be a mainstream artist like bagg or Durk, griselda, drill, melodic, bars, the boys in flint etc.

Hey thanks I appreciate it a lot, I love seeing others that really care for this kind of thing which you clearly do! Also the Logic thing lol, I've just gotten used to it by now, I find it so funny thinking my "credibility" tanks when most people see my praise for the man
