Issa – This Summer Review

This is an enjoyable album to have on in the background but there is too much autotune and repetition to be really focused on. Focusing on it shows the flaws in it.

The production reflects the title with a lot of relaxed beats that are very easy to hear. The backings are very cohesive and run together smoothly without becoming one long mess. However a few more variations in beat selection could have made a more balanced project.

The lyricism is alright but there is nothing complicated about it. It is all straightforward, which works well in doses, but over the whole project, it can become boring. A few more changes in delivery could make more entertaining songs.

The features do a good job breaking up the monotony of Issa. Each puts in some good effort and makes an entertaining verse. A couple of features with a bit more singing could have helped Issa out in that department but the choice of features here are a good choice.

Overall, this is a good background mixtape but if your looking for something engaging, you may want to look elsewhere. Issa has some work to do if he wants to become a power in Hip Hop.
