Troy Ave – Major Without A Deal Review

This album is ruined by all the references to how successful he currently feels he is. However the arrogance displayed does not reflect his position in Hip Hop and this project may well have brought him down a stage.

The production is good and opens a variety of avenues for song content. Troy does try his hand at a variety of track types, but doesnt get into the groove of each beat to make the connections cohesive. While variety is good, he needs to limit it down to a beat selection he really gels with.

The lyricism is alright but the lack of substantial content really takes from the performance. Troy Ave does have some good things wrapped into his rhymes but the delivery and obsession with wealth take away from what could be some great songs. Troy needs to look into some new things to rap about if he wants to be an actual success.

The features are a mixture of cohesive guests to big name rappers who all do well on the tracks they feature on. All of them put in good effort and, while some do better than others, each shows they can be big in Hip Hop. Some features that dont fit the rap profile so much could have expanded the audiance for this project, but the guests on this are a good selection.

Overall, this could have been an enjoyable album but Troy Ave does not seem to care about how good the songs are as long as he can rap about money. He has a lot of work to do.
