This album shows that G-Eazy can rap and do it well, but does not necesserily know the formula to a wining song. Some song chemistry is needed to tie the album together a bit more.
The production is different from the normal with a touch of abnormal patterns and sounds to give the music a dark edge. The songs follow the theme of when things are dakr, but it does need to still be tied together. Some more cohesion between the songs would help this project a lot.
The lyricism is great with G-Eazy easily striding through his rhymes with good and individual delivery. His lyrics are full of different techniques and devices to improve his imagery. Maybe some more changes to flow would help bring this project together.
The features are one of the most cohesive elements of this project as they help show the chemistry G-Eazy can have with other artists. Each has a good verse that helps to push the songs ot new hieghts. Some more variation in the type of guest with maybe more singing would help to show his diversity a bit more.
Overall, this is a great step for G-Eazy as it helps to hone his skills. Maybe on a brighter project, he could show that he can have more variation when it comes to content.
This album is great to listen through and does not have many jarring moments that ruin the experiance. Puff has crafted an album that proves he can still make music that people will enjoy.
The production has a big enough range to show Puff can work with a variety of tracks as well as different atmospheres. Each song is individual while being cohesive with the overall project. A few slower songs could show that Puff has a tighter grip on his emotions, but the project does not actually need it.
The lyricism may not be the most complex but it does help tell the story as well as show Puff’s skills on the mic. He shows that he can still hang with some of the best even if he is not considered one of them. Some more creative bars could have helped the project but may have ruined the delivery part of Piff’s display.
The features all do a good job of pushing Puff to his best performances while putting thier own strengths forward. Each puts a lot of pasison into thier verses to help bolster thier individual performances and help the tracks to be more cohesive. Some more singing guests could have a bolstering effect on the songs, but that would defeat the purpose of Puff Daddy and the Family.
Overall, this is a great album for putting on and kicking back to as well as partying around to. Puff can still create music that the public wants to hear.
