Please read the before posting! You basically go through a whole disc with bangers and some are good like the first 4, but then you get the radio reaches, the love songs, the club reaches and the really bad guest verses, especially Ceelos ridiculous sounding ass, and those really ruined the mood for me. At the very least though, there are some really really good tracks here. What do y'all think of this mixtape? The whole package is nice and well thought out. Additionally, comments deemed overtly racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, etc. While I think that one of the songs is subpar period, only one other song found me forming major criticism.
It was the lesser of the two albums for me. The intro track, The Light, Price of Fame are probably my favorites right now. Coming in to this album, I gotta admit to being a little bit pessimistic. A lot of diversity on this album as well so even at 22 songs I didn't find myself losing interest throughout it. After 3 listens I dont think it did. I was really surprised that CeeLo could still hold his own, and I love the little horn refrain that comes in toward the chorus.
Asking for or offering such content either publicly or via direct messages or other means is not allowed. That dude is like a staple feature on krit's shit, but oh well. The amount of soul, funk and gospel in this is great. As much as I'd love deeper introspection, more conscious or topical songs, there is no denying that this dude is a fucking master at making smooth, southern earcandy. I'd put this up there alongside his best tapes. I don't hate it and probably won't skip it while listening to the whole project, but it's not great.
The intro with the beat switch was very good. After you finish that you get into the other album while it is more musical and lyrical, I found it to be a bit tiring and repetitive after going through the first album. Also both the intro and closer were phenomenal, Bury me in Gold in particular was something special. We're looking forward to hearing more. Threads made to speculate about cryptic social media posts or website updates are also not allowed. That happens here literally every time a big album drops.
This album draws from so much great music. The following artists contributed to the project: , Joi, Big Sant, , Raheem Devaughn, ,. Beyond managing to keep both interest in the album and a smile on my face for 85 minutes, krit managed to perfect the art of unapologetic, southern earcandy. Cant help but think that he did, to a lesser degree - for sure, to southern hiphop what kendrick did for the west on tpab. About the actual album, being 84 minutes long, it's obviously really dense, so I'm definitely gonna have to listen to it a lot more. It features songs such as R4 Intro, Rise and Shine, R4 Theme Song.
Price of Fame and Drinking Sessions just grabbed me emotionally and kept me locked in through the end. A lot of people will say the usual criticism that it sounds a lot like all his other projects and they're not wrong but it's never bothered me personally and I think he changes up enough here, some really interesting beats and flows for instance, to get some recognition. Really cool to see cee lo green rapping, he did a pretty great job. So Imma definitely scoop up and hear the rest today. Both discs are fucking great, with little to no filler.
The 2nd disc is fantastic. After listening to it twice and a few songs a bunch, I really enjoyed. Is it supposed to be like the opposite of capitalising God's name?. Krit flows so godly on this dope ass beat. Not every song in here is breaking new ground, a lot of this is standard braggadocia, sappy love and krits signature autophila. The only complaint that i can think of is that sometimes he wears his influences a little bit on a couple tracks, but most of them come off as tributes rather then bitting.
His newfound artistic freedom truly gave him a facelift. He's using that as an example to mock all the people who flip on their opinions or call everything a classic before it's even released. A lot of great tracks, diverse production, a good balance between introspective tracks and bangers, and it never felt like it dragged despite being so long. You say anything neutral or level-headed about the album and people just call you a hater. Alongside the grimy selection of beats available, it's assuredly worth a listen. The way people are talking about the second half, I have nothing but excitement. I reached out to some of my favorite artists I felt represented what this album was about.
Love the use of electric guitar through the album, you don't see that often anymore. It's a worthy addition to a catalogue that has seen much growth since Big K. And I think this album's gonna grow on me more that I listen to it, even though I already love it so far. The freedom he has from being independent now definitely shows. I hope you all love it.
