This album is a delight, For being an album of supposedly unreleased song, it feels quite polished while still retaining the earnest, raw feeling of a good folk/singer-songwriter album. I just loved it. It makes me yearn for the mountains and the open road. It feels like climbing into a cave of Maggie's emotion and continuously digging deeper and deeper.
It's all about breaking down and analyzing religion with a strong sonic gospel-soul influence. This album is rich with so many awesome musical ideas. In a way it's very meditative. While it's not exactly what I expected from Spillage Village, I do think it's much more cohesive than the super group's previous Bear projects, it's not necessarily better, just more cohesive. Also the features on this thing are crazy deep.
It's hard to forget about Vic's past controversies but he really reaches back into his 2016 bag on this one. He finally seems to be back in his comfort zone, with strong production, strong bars, and a solid delivery. On top of that, there were plenty of great features. The projects as a whole could have been longer but it was definitely a great re-introduction to Vic Mensa. He's finally back on the right path.
Easily the most underrated Griselda project of 2020. Armani really presents as a throwback to the early legendary women of hip hop in the 90s with a little more understated "griselda" edge. She doesn't get in your face, she lets her bars speak for themselves.
