This album is dope as hell. I think it's one of the better projects I've heard so far this year. August Fanon's production here is fantastic, and Vic's rhymes are on point. I really don't have any consistent gripes with this project. Most of the songs are structured the same way, but I'd be being disingenuous if I said it really bothered me. I think the best moments come when Vic is rapping with a specific concept or story in mind, like on Hades Was a Hoe. There's not a single track here that I ... read more

This is a pretty good album. I don't really think it lives up to the quality of the first couple Man on the Moon albums, and I'd honestly probably take his 2016 album over this too, but I'm still a fan of this record. There's surprisingly not a single track here that I would say is genuinely bad. Some of them just lack anything that pulls me in, but those tracks were few and far between. In an interview with Zane Lowe, Cudi stated that he thinks he's lyrically underrated, which is probably why ... read more

This EP is pretty great to me. It’s longer than the first project I heard from NoFace, so there’s a bit more to dig into here. I think NoFace himself comes off more seasoned for whatever reason.

In fact, I’d say the production is the main reason I like this so much more than Black Gold to be honest. I’m ... read more

This album is honestly amazing to me. Damn near every track is awesome. There’s not a single song here that I don’t like. Even the skits were entertaining to me. I really don’t have any consistent gripes with it. I of course really like Redman and Method Man as rappers, but I honestly wasn’t expecting to enjoy the album this much. I thought there’d at least be one song that I didn’t care for. I kinda wish there were a few more beats from RZA just because he ... read more

This album is pretty amazing to me honestly. There’s not a single track here that I don’t think is dope. Pharoahe Monch is just as skilled of a rapper as he’s always been in my opinion. I of course appreciate the dark soundscape, and the political content is much appreciated. I really don’t have any consistent gripes with this project. Usually when rappers try to go for a Rap Rock fusion, it ends up being corny as hell, but I think Pharoahe Monch knocked this outta the ... read more
