This EP is great. I'd say it's about as good as MidaZ's Where the Sidewalk Ends album, so if this leaves you wanting more that's a good project to check out. I already knew MidaZ could rap going into this EP, but I came away pretty impressed by Sharp.'s production. I'll have to look out for more placements from them in the future. MidaZ's rapping throughout this project is the real selling point for me though. He reminds me a lot of Wu-Tang for some reason. The production might have something ... read more

This is a great album. There's not a single track that I didn't like, so I'd say this was a pretty successful first impression for Lync Lone. I think this project turned out about as well as I could have hoped it would. All the producers and features came through, and Lync Lone really impressed me as an MC. I think he rhymes really well. I can also say that he's a pretty good producer just based off the few beats I've heard from him so far. Some more varied song structures would probably go a ... read more

This album is dope as hell. I’d actually say that it’s one of the better projects I’ve heard in 2021 so far. I don’t know what I’m more impressed by between Ilajide’s rapping and his production.

If you’re a fan of CSF I’d say it’s a pretty safe ... read more

This EP is pretty great to me. I like it more than the second one and less than the first one. I think it’s probably the most consistent out of all of them though. I feel like this is the best produced one too. I was actually impressed by Merlaku Ra’s production. One thing I appreciate about Sylvan is that for the past few years his projects have had a focus on mental health as a theme. This whole Young Sylvan series has a loose theme of trauma, which just adds another layer to the ... read more

This album is kinda mediocre to me. I just don’t find most of the songs interesting. The best tracks are the songs in which he narrows in on the subject of love, but for the most part he keeps things very surface level. It feels like more of a loose theme than a strong concept. I guess that was the case with IDK’s previous album. With Is He Real? I cared more about the actual music than the theme of religion, but it’s flipped with this latest album; I care more about the theme ... read more
