Black Cobain – No Buzz Review

This is a strange project as, for what it aims to be, it is good. But Cobain could aim higher and have achieved more. If Cobain set his mind on a higher target, he may well reach it.

The production is gritty and unrefined which lets Cobain into the style of rap he enjoys using. The atmosphere created by the beats is exactly what each track is trying to say and each blends well into the next without feeling like the same track. Cobain has a good ear for what he wants from a track.

The lyricism is alright but Cobain won’t be sparring with the lyrical elite quite yet. While Black Cobain does use some rap techniques to great effect, he does not use the whole package to dominate the tracks. What he is using is good, if he tried to expand his variety of lyrical techniques, his projects would be more attractive to a Hip Hop audience.

The features are alright but there is nothing that majorly changes the tracks. Each feature puts in some good work but only to the extent that they have good verses without making the track seem any more enjoyable.

Overall, this is a good project that puts Black Cobain in a strong position, but is too centred on what it is trying to be. If he put some more effort in, this would be a fantastic project with more range. However it can still be enjoyed.
