This is a collection of intelligent and clever songs from an extremely talented lyricist, that unfortunately runs a little long. Joyner Lucas shows what he is capable of in spectacular fashion, but 83 minutes is a long time to be listening to it.
The production is excellent, with plenty of different atmospheres and a few different influences for a lot of different feels through out the project. Each song has a definite creative wave that makes you hear the song through a certain filter that makes the words impact more. Some consolidation of the beats would be good so that there is not any overlap of similar offerings.
The lyricism is truly awesome, with Joyner utilising a lot of different techniques as well as varying pace and flow to demonstrate why he is one of the best lyricists out in the rap game right now. He shows the complete package with good hooks, verses and outstanding wordplay. Absolutely no objections to how Joyner Lucas performs on this album.
The features are good and help add a little more depth to this emotional rollercoaster. The choice to only have a few guests, who all do great work with the main artist, is smart as Joyner is so versatile, he uses the rest of the time to show how talented he is. It will be interesting to see who wants to work with him and vice verse in the future.
Overall, this is an amazing release that should wake up the music world to the star that is Joyner Lucas. He should be proud of this release and keep this momentum going.
