Slaine And Termanology – Anti-Hero Review

This release is great for both artists as they have crafted a project that plays to both their strengths. Slaine and Termanology perform to their strengths and it pays off.

The production is amazing with contributions from some top producers that go with the darker themes. With the old school scratching fitting with the veterans, helping to showcase how long they have been in the game, there is a high level of cohesion throughout the album as well. Something a little lighter could have created a more complete image of the artists, but they have spent much of their careers in the dark side of rap and it only makes sense with the way this album heads that they stay there.

The lyricism is great and both artists come off well with their own styles. Both are very individual with their flows as well as complex rhyme schemes that make this extremely entertaining. There is a lot of vulgarity used in a lot of these songs that will make this inaccessible to a lot of listeners, but the two artists have never been known to bend for the masses and shouldn’t do so now.

The features all help contribute to the cohesiveness of this album with their chemistry together. All of them show that they are also talented entertainers to the right audience and help make this album a success. Something further from their own strengths could add another dimension, but there is no doubting the selection here.

Overall, this is a great release for fans of both artists as well as anyone who enjoys the darker side of rap music. This might not be for everyone, but for those who do enjoy it, they will enjoy it immensely.

Horseshoe Gang – Anti Trap Music Review

This album is great because it is showing a different side of rap than has been broadcast recently. Each member of the group shows how they are lyrically great as well as trying to open the minds of listeners around the world.

The production has a lot of diversity from modern west coast to more old school aggression. Each is done with a strong beat to rap over which lets the group show their abilities. They even use a beat compromised of vocals to show that the backing is not everything. There are no issues with the backings here as they only improve the project.

The lyricism is fantastic with all four members of the group pushing themselves to really push themselves. Every bar is either packed with emotion or stuffed with lyrical devices to make every song land hard with the listener. There are no issues with any of the members here and only great rhymes on the tracks.

The only feature on the project works great because with four members of the group, there is not a lot of space on the tracks that needs filling. The guest is none other than the older brother of all members of the group who helped them build their careers who does not fail to disappear.

Overall, this project is incredible for its messages, clever lyricism and cohesiveness. Everyone involved in this album should be proud of how it has turned out.
