Blacks – Sick individual 3 Review

This is another grime project with the same treaded paths as everyone else. Blacks may need to step further from the blueprint to stand out from the crowd.

The production has a lot going on behind Blacks rhymes which can be overwhelming to the performance. Blacks has chosen beats that mean his shouting and aggressive delivery is necessery to be heard. He may want to show a softer side if he wwants universal recognition.

The lyricism is somewhat repetitive and is simple. There are no overly complicated schemes or techniques and is mostly delivery based. He will want to beef up his bars if he wants ot become a real force in grime.

The features do bring some colour to this project but are in the same vein as Blacks, meaning it does not contrast well. Each has the passion behind it but is just doing more of what Blacks does without even putting thier own spin on it.

Overall, this is enjoyable if you want energetic music to pump to, but if you want substance then this is not for you. Blacks has a way to go before he is in the elite.

P Money – Money Over Everything Review

This project relies heavily on production for its greatness, but P Money does a good job keeping it interesting. It is a shame that at twenty tracks long, that there is so much similarity between the tracks.

The production is excellent and really helps to build this project up to another level. All the beats are so grimy that they could not be confused for anything else. There are a lot of unusual sounds and noises that are used effectively to make the tracks interesting. Maybe a bit more variation between the backings would give this project some more replay ability, however there are no big issues with the selection here.

The lyricism is good but not as good as it could be. A lot of the performance on this album is from delivery and while the wordplay here does help, it is not the main focus. That is not to say that there is not enjoyable wordplay   within the project, it is just not as noticable as it could be.

The features are alright but they don’t shine as much as P Money does. Each of them does try hard and has thier own unique approach to thier rhymes and thier own vocal tones as well. The problem is that P Money is on another level and sghows the weaknesses in the guests verses.

Overall, this is an enjoyable album for a while and then it falls into the repetitive catagory until the end, where there is a small saving grace. P Money has crafted an album that is entertaining, but could take some work.
