AOTY 2023
Billy Marchiafava - Mainstream Meme
Mar 6, 2020
At times, this album that feels like an EP, hits well, but Billy Marchiafava is better as a novelty artist. His songs where he raps about fucking your mom or compares himself to Sonic are catchy earworms, as Billy doesn't take himself too seriously. On Mainstream Meme, Billy loses his essence as he tries to establish himself as a serious rapper.

I don't listen to rap for the lyrical content, but on this album it's weak. Every song is about blowing up or fucking bitches, with no deviation. It's what Billy's good at, but after enough time, it's boring. The beats are also a bit more typical, with the video game type beats that Billy made popular are missing. Luckily, this album is only 16 minutes long so it's not a taxing listen.

The few features on this album are good, though, so those tracks fare a bit better.

One word to summarize this album: Regressive

BEST TRACKS: French Fry Dinner, Groovy
WORST TRACK: Father Figure
