Young Fathers – White Men Are Black Men Too Review

This is an interesting listen as it is unconventional in almost every way, from title to beats to vocals. This may not be strictly Hip Hop but it can be entertaining if viewed through the right lens.

The production is certainly different and utilises a lot of noises and sounds that are very strange and out of place until combined together in these tracks. A lot of the songs could be jarring except that the chemistry with the vocals helps make these songs enjoyable, even if they have limited replay ability. It’s possible that some less experimental tracks could show some more vocal talent instead of strangeness, but the beats can still be enjoyed on this project.

The lyricism is strange because of the infrequent verses throughout the album. The lyrics don’t really stand out against the backing beat and the wordplay is not very complex. With some improvements on the delivery and complexity of the lyrics, this would be a better album.

Overall, this is an experimental project that is enjoyable the first time through but loses a lot of its appeal after that point. Young Fathers may need to look into how they put a song together to help them become a stronger force.
