Fabolous – The Young OG Project Review

This is a good nineties themed project that takes the listener back to those times through good atmosphere, production sound and the fact that Fabolous raps on the album now as he would have back then. He brings his experiences and emotions into this project to make it very relatable for the audience.

The production is good and is a total retro experience that helps lend itself to the old Fabolous rap as well as the theme of the album. There are a lot of sounds and patterns used in the nineties that are present on this album and it is very refreshing to hear music that sounds like it was created and lost in the nineties and then brought to light this year.

The lyricism is great and nothing less than we expect from as accomplished a lyricist as Fabolous. With the emotional content and energy on this album, Fabolous does well to bring the level of imagery and engross the audience in the message from the tracks. From a lyrical point of view, this album is top notch.

The features are good, but aren’t necessarily fitting in from the nineties era of Rap. The likes of Rich Homie Quan and French Montana are not names that spring to mind when you think of rap stars of the nineties. It would have been better to see some higher ranking nineties rappers in the mix to help build on the theme.

Overall, this is a great project for Fabolous and for lovers of the nineties era. It has everything that appealed to lovers of nineties rap and may help show how great of a time for rap it was to newer listeners.

Nike Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Review

Once it is worn in, this is a very comfortable pair of shoes. However up to that point they can be uncomfortable as they are of sturdy construction and need to be flexed a bit to become a bit more malleable and conform a bit more to the foot.

To start the silhouette is quite narrow to begin with so getting it on for the first time can be quite difficult. However this can be solved by loosening the laces, even though the laces can be tricky to loosen in the first place as they seem almost stuck in place. After a couple times of wearing them, this goes away a bit but they stay fairly stiff.

Even with this, when they are on, they are still comfortable and can be worn for a long time without getting sore feet. The high top is also helpful because it helps to support the ankle and is a little padded to give extra comfort. However the high top is one of the reasons the shoe can be tricky to get onto the wearer’s feet.

Overall, this is a comfortable shoe that takes some getting used to, but as a piece of Jordan Brand history coming up on its thirtieth anniversary, this could be a great buy. If your a collector, this is a must buy and if your a sneaker afficianado, the same applies.
