Kevin Gates – Islah Review

This album is vintage Kevin Gates with a great mixture of deep emotion and aggression. He keeps this balance well through the whole project with good energy to keep it going.

The production is smooth and has a good level of diversity. The beats are individual and there is no way they are getting mixed up together. There are no real problems with the beat selection here as Kevin has used them to maximum effectiveness.

The lyricism is good as Kevin Gates maximises his imagery with clever wordplay and descriptive ability. He uses his rhymes to really put the pictures into the listeners head and help them connect with the music. Again, there are no real issues with this element of the project.

The features are smart as they all appear on the same track. This means that for most of the project, Kevin Gates can showcase his own abilities without compromising space for others. Each of the guests puts in a lot of effort and the song they are on is fantastic.

Overall, this project is amazing and Kevin Gates should be proud of what he has made here. Without compromising his principles, he has shown a tough and soft side that makes a very balanced album.
