Meek Mill – DC4 Review

This project is very entertaining and shows that Meek Mill still has a passion for rap despite all the beef he finds himself in. It is good to see he is better than just a target for any number of rappers.

The production is good with plenty going on in the background to support the lyrics. Each beat contains similar elements but are diverse enough that they are not too much alike. Some slower songs could help balance this mixtape out, but Mill has a strong selection to work with here.

The lyricism is good but is not fantastic. Meek Mill relies on his delivery a bit too much and his rhymes do suffer slightly because of it. While they are still clever, his lines need a bit more complexity to appeal to a wider audience.

The features are ok but many run in the same vein and have thier own weaknesses. There is a lot of autotune that doesn’t work great with the beats and Mill’s own style as well as many other shout rappers that sound similar to the main artist. Some more variation would go a long way on this project.

Overall, this is an enjoyable project because of the energy running through and the fun that comes from it, but it does have its pitfalls. Meek Mill shout take what is in this mixtape and refine it for a future album.


2 Chainz – Daniel Son: Necklace Don Review

This project is simply a placeholder as it has no real impact on the listener at all. 2 Chainz does what he is known for, but he doesn’t push himself to be better.

The production is good and helps keep the project moving. Each beat has energy and bounce that makes every one more cohesive to the next and sound in place with the project. Maybe some slower tracks could have balanced it out a bit more, but more work is needed on the rhymes than the production.

The lyricism is alright with some clever attempts but not enough to make a huge notice. 2 Chainz uses his signature flow and voice to make his songs strong, but they fall flat with repetition. Some more creativity could really help lift this mixtape.

The features are good but aren’t enough to lift the project to greatness. They all put in good efforts and help the tracks they are on. Maybe a few more could have helped the project overall.

Overall, this is an enjoyable project to listen through once, but has no longevity at all, in the sense that maybe once is enough. 2 Chainz may want to start looking for more in his work to stay more relevant.
