This Cordae dude reminds me of Common, but with less wit/rhyming ability and more youthful ambition. Sonic palette is similar, almost zero dissonance. Some shades of Logic in there too, but Cordae is better at conveying an older soul conviction, the kind of MC who's a little wiser then his age might imply. He just doesn't do anything that you've never heard before unless you're 13 and this is your 4th rap album ever. Thankfully, what he lacks in uniqueness, he makes up for in having reasonable consistency. There aren't any 10/10 songs here or anything, but the worst songs aren't all bad, they're manageable. There might be a Cordae album that really pushes the envelope and separates him from the pack, but this isn't the one to do it.
