This a very clean quick compilation. You got maticulous laying out a simple variety of dope beats while recruiting a bunch of top tier heavily striped underground beasts. They all do what is expected so you already have a formula for dopeness there. Its a dope fusion of just words and music, solid contrast and simple pacing. You arent putting this on to get messages or gems or cry or some shit like that, this is put on when you cant figure out what you wanna listen to, or if you just want some solid hip hop to kickstart whatever you tryna do with yourself for the day. Easily throw this on around old heads, young cats might be skeptical but thats they business, they dont fight anyway so whatever passive aggressive bullshit they pull can be ignored. In rotation.
7.9/10 – John D.
