King Los – God, Money, War Review

This is an album intended to provoke thought and, to an extent, it does. However it lacks the energy to really make the songs stick and make the messages stay with the listener.

The production is good as individual tracks and all have the right tone for the messages. Each has an atmosphere that helps the impact of the messages when listneing to it. However they lack luster and do not have a lot ofreplay ability.

The lyricism is great and shows amazing creativity from King Los. His rhymes paint vivid pictures of what he is describing that unfortunately fade away as a new picture takes its place. Maybe changing up the content to less conscious naterial could help Los make tracks people will want to replay.

The features all add an extra dimension to the project as they are mostly singing which reflects well with King Los’ rap style. All the guests bring good verses that build each track up and help increase how cohesive the tracks are. A few more features that would push Los lyrically could be good, but these are all good choices.

Overall, this is an enjoyable album for the emotional listener who wants to hear of darker, thought provoking topics. However if you want something lighter, this may not be for you.
