Kano - Hoodies All Summer
Sep 16, 2019

If you are making a "woke rap" record, you either fail spectacularly, or you make an AOTY contender. Kano manages to do neither on this album.

Hoodies All Summer is a great concept for a record, but when it comes to execution, it is critical to nail it perfectly. Kano does not accomplish this, but neither does he fall flat on his head. The lyricism is good, but I feel like beats often weigh the beat down, and I am not a fan of Kano's flow some of the time. Case and point - Class of Deja, Good Youtes Walk Amongst Evil, and most importantly, SYM. Some tracks on here are great, such as the opener Free Years Later, and Trouble, but I feel like on average, the album is just that... average. Some witty humor here, and deep introspective social commentary there, but I feel sometimes Kano loses his lead and starts rapping in the completely wrong direction.

A great concept, but a rather weak execution.
