After listening to Whipski and some cuts from his discog, I decided to give $not's most recent album a try. $not is a rapper who blew up in late 2020 after having Cole Bennett direct videos for Revenge and Mean, both of which appear on this record. Throughout Beautiful Havoc, $not proves that he's got a knack for both melodies and violent bars; his versatility, which is much stronger than most of his Floridian counterparts, is a key part of what makes this a good record. Positives include $not's versatility, the production, and the features, as Denzel Curry (Sangria) Flo Milli (Mean) and Iann Dior (Like Me) are all welcome additions. However, like most of his compatriots in the Soundcloud scene, $not could do a better job developing his bars, and his flow seems off-kilter at times. Overall, a very solid record from a guy who I feel is gonna do big things.
