P Money – Snake EP 2 Review

If this EP doesn’t kill some of the rumours flying around about P Money, it is because people do not want to see facts. This has some great songs on it, which can be repetitive in a row but makes it very clear how P Money feels about his current beef.

The production is aggressive with a lot of techno sounds to punctuate the message. Each beat has a slightly different flavour to help to give a new angle on the situation each time. The aim of this is to be in yoru face, which the beats here accomplish with ease.

The lyricism is smart with some focus on wordplay and others on imploring that he is spitting the truth. The rhymes are clever without losing emphasis on how real his point is in every bar. He gets his message across without having to change his delivery to try and make it work.

Overall, this is a great EP for showing that P Money will stand his ground against any accusation against him. Now with this chapter hopefully closed, he can go back to making great albums.

President T – T On The Wing Review

This release shows that while he has solid rhymes and a unique voice and flow, repetition can really kill a project. President T needs to try to vary his hooks instead of saying one line loudly over and over.

The production is good and is as aggressive as the main artist. Each beat is strong but fades too far back as President T is too vocal over the top for it to make much impact. A bit more balance between the noise sources could help this sound a bit more cohesive.

The lyricism is good but not incredible. While there is some clever wordplay and his delivery boosts that, there is only so many times any listener can hear how good a rapper is without needing more proof. If he can vary his content more, as well as improve his hooks, then he could have some of the evidence to prove he is as good as he says he is.

The features are one of the best things about this album. Each puts in a nice effort and provides a fantastic point of comparison to President T, showing his strengths and weaknesses more clearly. Some more singers could have brought another dimension to this project, but may not have fit in with President T’s style.

Overall, this is a disappointing release, but it does offer redemption. President T shows the potential to make amazing music, but he is falling short due to his ego and simple loudness.

P Money -Live & Direct Review

This is a fun release from P Money because despite some of the more emotional content, the way it is crafted keeps plenty of momentum going. P does well to have such diverse content in these conditions.

The production is much more electronic than other releases but helps to show that P Money is willing to try new things and explore the world of music more. Each is individual and yet cohesive to the others so that a full listen through doesn’t become work. The experiment with these kinds of beats have worked well and it will be interesting how P develops further in the future.

The lyricism is good with a strong delivery helping to bolster the performance. Solid wordplay as well as variation of flows helps make this entertaining as well as allowing the rhymes to land home hard. This is a great showing by P Money as he should continue to develop as an artist and put out music like this, but maybe a little less repetition in the hooks.

The features are good too as they have some strong performances as well as Money bringing up some newer talent too. Each showcases their own abilities and helps to make this the cohesive project that it is. Possibly a little more singing could help but this is still a great selection.

Overal, this is a fun and enigmatic album that should have some serious success. P Money should get more attention from audiences with this release.

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.
