This release is a great showing for lyricists everywhere, but lacks a certain star power to help bring it back to the forefront as a skill. Your Old Droog clearly has some talent, but may want to expand his repertoire to attract more listeners.
The production is good but with a lot of unusual instrument placement. The way some of the instruments are incorporated make the beats more unique,, however do not make them more mainstream so are unlikely to make Droog a household name. A few more mainstream backings could help bring more listeners to the audience, but Droog does great on the selection here.
The lyricism is obviously incredible with Droog showcasing his abilities with amazing wordplay. Each of the verses is packed with an assortment of techniques that make the bars so entertaining for the real hip hop listener.Maybe Droog could try varying his delivery and performance, but the actual lyrics are truly amazing.
The features are good and help to flesh out this release, but they do not add a huge amount to the finish. Each does an alright job, but their main contribution is breaking up the monotony of one tone and voice. Some more variation in the guests could add another dimension to this project.
Overall, this is an enjoyable release for every listener who loves true lyricism. If you are looking for pop beats and autotune, you are definitely in the wrong place.
