This is a good mixtape for Nipsey Hussle to show his skills are still sharp and he can still make great music. With a range of top mixtapes under his belt, this one only adds to the catalogue.
The production is good with lots of diversity so there is plenty of scope for content. Each beat is entertaining and creates the perfect atmosphere for the message of the song. There are no big problems with the backing selection here, apart from personal taste of the listener of course.
The lyricism is great with Nipsey showing a lot of different techniques as well as impressive delivery. Every song has a message that is clear and made clearer by the wordplay and descriptive ability Hussle displays. Possibly a few more flow changes could have an interesting effect, but Nipsey has a great performance on this project.
The features are good as they help to break up the sound of one voice over the seventeen track project. Each puts in a good effort and helps the project to stay cohesive. Maybe some more singers could balance out the guest side of this mixtape, but all on here are effective.
Overall, this is a great project if your a fan of the west coast as Nipsey Hussle hoists it up on his shoulders and carries through to the modern age. With a few others help, the west coast could beat out the other styles of rap music and be crowned king again.
