This release shows a willingness for AD to expand beyond his local territory. This is a great project that proves that AD is a talent to stay.
The production is smooth and expansive. Each beat leaves a lot of room for the artists on it to flex their skills and lets the flavour of the artists add to the backings. Maybe a few more songs with a few different influences could show a little more growth, but AD has a strong selection here.
The lyricism is not overly complicated but has a lot of impact with the delivery. AD does well to pick strong production that accentuates his performance. He has good wordplay, but a little more complexity would not go amiss.
The features all help to keep this project rolling smoothly on. They all show talent in their ability and keep this release being cohesive. A few more singers might give this another edge to praise, but the guests on this are a solid group.
Overall, AD should be very happy with this as it is another stepping stone to greater success. This should make more listeners take notice of the west coast rhymer and appreciate his skills.
