This is the best current album for lovers of lyricism and rap styles of the old days. Droog controls everything about this album from flow to tone to how much you should enjoy each track and he hits every note perfectly. This is a truly great work of retro art.
The production is clearly new but has a very throwback feel to them. They each have the feeling of not being overpowering while accenting what Droog is doing on each one. Especially on the track “The 70’s”, the production fits in beautifully as he raps about new rappers who rap like the old days so he shows his age and goes further back than them to rap better than them.
The lyricism is beautiful and is present on every track, and pretty much every bar. Droog works the words wonderfully into imagery, similies, metaphors and any other lyrical device you can think of into easy flowing and extremely enjoyable raps. His flow is reminiscent of Nas and should propel Droog toward mainstream success.
The whole project is crafted so that it flows together easily and makes listening to it very easy going while you can listen to it with more intent to pick up all the complex wordplay that Droog throws in there. It is a very good album that all Hip Hop enthusiasts can enjoy.
Overall, this album is good for all listeners of Hip Hop and will help to bring lyricism back to the forefront of mainstream Hip Hop. Your Old Droog should be very happy with this project and should be ready to hit great success very soon.
