This is a good showcase for J Stone and it really does show that he is growing as a force in Hip Hop. He may not be the most well known rapper but he does well to show why he should be better known with this mixtape.
The production is good and gives a good base for Stone to build on. While the beats are not overly exciting or engaging, they give a cohesive feel when combined with Stone’s rapping. While some of the beats may be considered basic or simple, they are still effective and enjoyable songs to listen to.
The lyricism is good and apparent on a lot of tracks. While some of it is not the most complex of wordplay, it is all clever and used in a lot of the lines. Stone does well to weave in these techniques while staying on point with the message on each song which helps to build on the cohesiveness of each track.
The features are good and show that J Stone can work well with other rappers. While that may have been obvious from his connection with Nipsey Hussle, the features on here are good by themselves and also good when compared to J Stone, without making Stone look feeble. A great lyrical effort by Stone has made a great lyrical project.
Overall, this is a good project with Stone looking like he is going to grow in the music industry this year if he can keep putting out work like this. If he puts some more enticing beats in with his lyrics, he could go far in Hip Hop
