This release is a great showing of Bugzy Malone’s talent and how he is a force to be reckoned with. There is a song for each audience on here, but it may not connect totally because of the backings.
The production is good, don’t be mistaken, but it fades away a little too much in places, taking from the impact of the songs. Each beat is still individual and creates the right atmosphere for the project. However they do not totally support Malone and something with a little more push could lift this higher on the way to success.
The lyricism is great, with good story telling elements as well as wordplay. Bugzy Malone proves he deserves a title in the rap game, but knowing what happened to the last King in the North (Game Of Thrones) could show it is not always the best path to take. Let us hope he can continue to carry his brand and his skills forward to future releases.
The features are good and help show some good chemistry with the main artist. They each show their own skills and break up the hearing of one voice as well. Maybe some more guests could show that Bugzy can work with a range of people, but leaving more time to show his own abilities was still a smart move.
Overall, this release shows that Bugzy Malone definitely has a strong following that he appeals to. Now it is just a case of seeing if he can broaden that audience to fill the south as well.
