This project is a strange release because it isn’t very long but is not as cohesive as would be expected. Both the artists do their thing but it doesn’t grab the listener the way some of their solo releases have.
The production is strong with some very memorable beats from some strong talent. Each is strong, with similarities to each other but without being confused for one another. Both the artists usually use these type of beats so something further from their comfort zone would be an interesting mix.
The lyricism is not great but the performance factor helps to improve the rhymes. While there is some wordplay, it isn’t intended to be a main focus here as they rely more on delivery to be the biggest factor. Some more complicated rhymes might open this up to a wider audience.
Overall, this is an entertaining release because of the energy and vibrant nature of the music. However it has no longevity and some evolution of the artists may keep them making money.
This is an entertaining mixtape that has some replay ability but won’t be breaking any records. Lil Uzi Vert makes these tracks work together and helps keep things enjoyable.
The production is good with a lot of energy and positiveness going through the whole project. Each track is individual without running into the next one, but is cohesive enough so it isn’t a stop start listen through. Maybe some more diversity could make a more balanced mixtape but the theme of this project helps tie it all together.
The lyricism is good but not fantastic. Lil Uzi Vert relies on his delivery for a portion of the entertainment and while this is important, a few more technical attempts would help push this towards greatness. The rhymes are definitely still entertaining for the listener.
The features are good and help vary the project more. Each puts in a good effort and helps to flesh out the tracks they are on. Maybe some more singers could help bring in a wider audience with more crossover value but the guests on this do a great job.
Overall, this is great for people who want more connecting music between the new and older ages of Hip Hop, but there is still a long way to go and a few more technical skills to be polished. Lil Uzi Vert has made his name known and now needs to push himself to show he is better than others.
