Soulja Boy Tell ‘Em – Loyalty Review

This is an incorrect title for this project as there appear to be no tracks about loyalty on the project. Its all about money and guns and all the things young men who aren’t already famous rap about. However with his money in hand, Soulja keeps rapping about the same things and it doesn’t come across as genuine.

The production is bass heavy and can be enjoyed, even with Soulja Boy rapping over the top. With such emphasis on bass, the beats can come across as one dimensional but there is enough variation and work through the album, that this is not too much of a problem.

The lyricism is poor at best with only a few instances of wordplay at all. Soulja seems to spend a lot of time repeating the same or similar phrases throughout all of the tracks and it makes for poor listening. Soulja needs to make some major adjustments to his rap style and improve his level of lyrical techniques if he wants to move forward in Hip Hop.

The features are slightly better than Soulja Boy but run in similar lanes to him and, while it does elevate the overall project, it is only a slight increase. They each put in good efforts and the delivery is better than Soulja and yet the overall album falls flat.

Overall, this is poor effort on every track and the title does not reflect what the songs are about. Soulja Boy needs to start thinking about the word cohesive and how it could be applied to his own work to help make a better overall album.
