Spice 1 delivers a brand new project just right for Halloween. On the mic, Spice 1 does his normal thing. He doesn’t really have any mind-bending bars. it’s more about his flow and delivery than anything else. He’s got a bunch of features from artists like Krayzie Bone, Layzie Bone, The Game, Twista, Kurupt, and more. The beats on here definitely sound more sinister and perfect for Halloween. They have a bit of a West Coast slant towards them as is appropriate. Overall, this is a pretty average album, especially for Spice 1. He’s basically hitting for par on this one.
Spice 1 comes through with a brand new project for fans. This one is pretty average overall. On the mic, you pretty much get what you would expect from Spice 1. He gives us the West Coast gangsta vibe through his bars, but also keeps it a bit upbeat as well. The production on here is pretty standard. It definitely gives you the vibe of driving up and down Coastal Highway with the top down. Definitely has a strong West Coast bounce to it. There really wasn’t anything too rewind-worthy on here, but at the same time, there’s nothing whack either. This one pretty much hits for par with no frills.
Spice 1 comes back at us relatively quickly with a new project called Platinum O.G. He definitely stepped it up on this one. You get better bars and better beats all around on this album. His rhymes seem noticeably improved while still giving us that great West Coast vibe that we want to hear. There are a lot of great features on here from the likes of Too Short, Pimp C, Rappin 4-Tay, Richie Rich, The Outlawz, and many more. The beats portray the same kind of West Coast feeling. You can definitely picture yourself cruising up the Pacific Coast Highway blasting some of these tracks. The only downfall that I can really see on here is the sheer length of the project. 21 tracks is a lot to get through especially when creating songs that are often close to 5 minutes in length. Other than that, I think Spice 1 definitely had a good approach to creating this project. A lot of veterans and some dope West Coast beats will definitely make a project very good.
Another record from an MC I thought was out of the game. Spice One is back with a robust new album called Throne of Game. I had some mixed reviews about this one. Lyrically, I think Spice One’s talent lies in his flow more so than his lyrics. While you may not necessarily think he has the dopes rhymes out there, his flow is crazy as he can cover the track with an expert precision. It’s more fun to listen to him than it would be to pick apart his lyrics. With that being said, he does a decent job on this new project. There is definitely a hint of that classic West Coast sound on here. The beats are a mixed bag. Some of the songs sound really dope while others sound like they are trying to keep up with trends more than pushing the culture forward. The dopest beat is probably “Reload.” This is just such a well-produced song and along with help from Aloe Jo’el and G Battles, they really make a dope song here with this one. This might not be the dopest album out there but I think if you listen to the whole thing, you can find something you will like on here.
