from a production point of view, this is a good mixtape, but the combination of featured artists and its tending for the tracks to lack any real flare. The artists lack the touch that makes each track want to be listened to and instead there is a string of mediocre songs that make up a majority of a twenty track project.
The production is fantastic and is the best part of the project. As Mike is a producer then this is a great point and the standard doesn’t drop below very good. The beats also have a signature sound that helps Mike stand out against other producers. However with the features on the tracks don’t totally do justice to the quality of the production.
The features are alright overall, but some are clearly not as good as some others. The more high calibre features do very well crafting superior tracks that have great energy and atmosphere. Unfortunately these are few and far between and there are more tracks to play through than to get excited by. This cuases a boring listen for anyone interested in lyricism and Mike may need to be a bit more careful of who he lets on his projects.
Overall, this has a few good tracks but has a lot of other tracks to shift through before you can pick them out. If the project had been cut a bit shorter and been more cohesive then it would have been a better mixtape. As it stands it is too long and too much hard work.
