Spodee – The B.I.D Review

This is another project that falls into the trap of being constantly doing the same thing on each track with only the occasional change in pace, content or any other factor. More diversity would lead to a greater project. it would be an even greater project if Spodee was diversified from the many other trap rappers out there and stood out from the crowd.

The production is very good, but needs to change gear more frequently to become great. All of the beats are trap beats, or are at least derived from trap beats, and become almost hypnotic in the sense that they just flow from one into the other without really being able to tell when one song ends and another begins. The only way to tell really is when there is a pause with no music at all.

The lyricism is ok, but is only great in a few spots. Spodee spits mostly about generic content with generic schemes with a few moments that break into greater lyricism.but these are few and far between. If Spodee wants to break out from being “just another trap rapper” he needs to start trying something new and not just making more of the same.

The features are good and are the only thing that could bring any changes to the mixtape. All of them are different from Spodee and really help to bring new angles to the project. Each of them bring a new opinion and a fresh voice to their tracks and help detract from the continuous sounds of Spodee being the same as everyone else.

Overall, this is an ok project if you like a typical Spodee track, which all of these are, but if not, you should stay away from this one. Considering some of the competition in the rap game today, Spodee needs to step his game up to get even sloe to Hip Hop’s elite.
