There was a lot of hype around this new group Coast Contra and their debut album. I saw tons of retweets and freestyles posted from some heavyweights in the game about these guys. Essentially, these guys locked in and went to work inside an apartment with all of them just grinding out the work. Upon listening through the album, I think they have decent flows, but the rhymes need some more work. Nothing really stuck with me at all. There weren’t really any quoteables given. The beats were okay. There really wasn’t anything earth-shattering, but it was decent. The highlight of the album was the last track “Pangea.” This is a dope beat and the crew just goes in with the bars. I thought the whole album should have sounded more like this track. All in all, this was a decent release, but I thought it was a lot of hype for not the best payoff. Hopefully they focus a little bit more for the next release.

OVERALL RATING: 3 out of 5 Cheesesteaks
