Jag returns with a pretty decent offering here. This one is nothing too crazy but it is not bad at all. It has a real upbeat feel to it which I appreciated. I almost got the vibe that he was trying to create a West Coast sound, but I could be wrong with his approach. The beats are pretty decent overall. There wasn’t anything that was way too memorable but, there’s nothing whack on here either. It’s a decent vibe throughout. Lyrically, Jag is pretty good. I think his flow is damn near perfect. He is really good at being relentless with the lyrics and staying on beat perfectly. There are a few moments where he tries to appeal to this whole trap flow of today, but other than that, I think he stays true to himself. The highlight was probably “Saturday Night” featuring Garren. This is a dope party track that has a very good vibe to it. You will definitely want to check this out if you are a fan of his work. This is one of his better projects.

Very quick. French Montana. 3 songs. 1 Drake feature. Rhymes aren’t too good at all. Just sounds like French had a stroke or has Tourette’s syndrome and is just spewing out random words and they might happen to occasionally rhyme. Beats are below average, maybe average at best. You’re not really going to get much out of this one at all. If there is anything redeeming about this, it’s that it is so quick. Not too much pain for the eardrum.

The 90’s “Whatcha Want” rapper Nine has returned with a brand new album produced entirely by The Snowgoons. This album is chock full of fantastic songs to keep your head nodding. Nine’s voice is just amazing and it drives a lot of his gritty and raw lyrics. He sounds like someone took a weed whacker, placed it on his vocal chords, and just let it rip. The outcome is a raw and scratchy voice that can spit street lyrics with the rest of them. The beats on this album are top notch. It’s hard to get better boom bap beats than the ones on this project. The lead single “The Revenent” is a perfectly crafted song to show the world that Nine is back to make the streets remember him. You absolutely can’t go wrong with this project. You will definitely have this one bumping in the whip for awhile to come.

Another good release from Currensy. I actually thought he did a little better than average on this one. Lyrically, he speeds it up just a tad. His flow is slightly faster than his usual slow drawl. There’s a bit more energy throughout this project as you listen through it. This might be due to the production side of this project. It seems to be a little bit more upbeat and a little bit more musical than past releases. Currensy really gets the audience lifted throughout this project and shows us that there is in fact Fire In The Clouds.
The DITC vet is back with another album and this one is pretty decent overall. I will say that it doesn’t really sound like a lot of other offerings from DITC though. Production wise, it almost has an other-worldly feel to it. You don’t really get that gritty DITC studios sound like you do on other offerings, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. There’s a lot more instrumentation behind a lot of these beats. AG definitely does what he does on the mic. You get what you expect from him lyrically and that is a good thing. Nothing too crazy, but nothing whack either. He is definitely shooting for par on here. All in all, this was a decent release from the DITC member.

Bun B is back with another trill installment for fans. I gotta be honest, this one wasn’t as dope as I expected it to be. It wasn’t whack by any means, but I just don’t think it has lived up to the hype of previous solo albums from Bun. I think the main culprit was the production. He has some dope tracks on here, but it just didn’t fill out the project as much as previous efforts have done like Trill OG. I wanted to hear that one song that was just a certified down south banger and it really wasn’t delivered. There were some highlights on this though. “Traphandz” with Yo Gotti and 2Chainz was a pretty dope and catchy song. The chorus is definitely one that will draw you in and keep you there. The best song on here is probably “Blood On The Dash.” This is a perfectly written song about the different perspectives of a man riding home at the end of the night and a police officer patrolling. These 2 have an inevitable crossing of paths and gives their perspectives through the whole interaction. This is an example of perfect penmanship by Bun B here. His rhymes throughout the project are pretty decent, but I would have liked to have seen some different production. All in all, this one is not too bad.
