FRENCH MONTANA – JUNGLE RULES

This album was exactly what you would expect from French Montana. If a retarded rapper had a seizure and tourettes and just spewed out some mumble raps all over trap beats, this is what the outcome would be. A lot of these bounce/trap beats and songs just don’t work for me. French is in no way a lyricist. He has no bars whatsoever. The beats are pretty much trash on here as well. They might be more highly produced than most stuff out there because he has the Bad Boy machine behind him, but there is nothing of redeeming value on here. Take this piece of garbage and just chuck it off of the nearest bridge you can find.

TYLER THE CREATOR – SCUM FUCK FLOWER BOY

This album was pretty bad overall. Tyler once again tries to shock us but it doesn’t go over too well. Lyrically I don’t think he is any good at all. There were no lines where I had to rewind and listen back to what he said. There are no lines that stick with you and you find yourself putting them as your Facebook status. The beats on this project aren’t too good either. You can tell they tried to go in a different direction on here, but it just sort of ended up weird instead of being a quality project. I think Tyler tries to go for shock value more than anything else. It fell flat on this project though. I wouldn’t waste my time on this one at all. Somebody out there might find some kind of redeeming quality on this project, but I definitely didn’t.

TWISTA – CROOK COUNTY

This album was just okay. There were strong points and weak points to it. Lyrically Twista is pretty awesome. Obviously he is one of the fastest rappers out there if not the fastest. He definitely brings a crazy barrage of dope lyrics on this album. The beats are decent. There are some hard-hitting ones that are pretty drum heavy but then you have some beats that sound similar to these trap beats out here. It’s a shame when you have an OG like Twista that is trying to sell out to sound like the new sound of today. I hope that is not the case here. Overall, this is a decent release but I wouldn’t spend much time on this one. One listen is probably good enough and move on.

CHRIS RIVERS – DELOREAN

Chris Rivers dropping a solo album was definitely promising but this project didn’t exactly translate to the greatness that it could have been. Don’t get me wrong, it was dope and there were some good moments, but it just didn’t zoom past the competition like I thought it would have. Lyrically he is on point. He has that gift that is no doubt passed down from his father. He is able to bend words and flow pretty much like a dragon. He is pretty ferocious. The beats on this album were okay. There was nothing that really stood out as a banger. Highlights on this album include “Lord Knows,” OldThing Back,” and “Fear Of My Crown.” These 3 tracks are super dope and definitely showcase his skill. These are definitely 3 good album cuts. I think the album falls short on some weird skits that are unneeded and some tracks that are just average or get lost in the mix. Overall, Rivers did a decent job but I think he is capable of a lot more.

TY FARRIS – RAMEN NOODLE NIGHTS

Ty Farris is 100% undeniably a great MC. Lyrically he is crazy. He is able to flip some multi-syllabic rhymes unlike most rappers today. For this, I give him a ton of props. This new project is another dose of his talent. Overall this is a good project. Lyrically he is on point and you can hear the talent from track to track. The beats are decent on here. They are very hard and heavy on drums. I think where it lacks a little bit is that some of the tracks sound darker than normal. They don’t really give you an uplifting feeling at all. That may be the mood you are in currently and that may be fine but I like a good mix on a project. That aside, this is a dope release that you need to check out. Can’t wait to hear more from Ty Farris.

JAKK FROST – WINTER IS COMING EP

This was a banging 4 track EP from the Beard Gang general Jakk Frost. The biggest complaint I have is that is was so short. I def want another mixtape or studio album from Jakk Frost. It’s been a minute now and the Philly veteran is super dope. He has some great and powerful lyrics. His voice is amazing. Sounds like he is shooting rhymes out of his mouth like a cannon. The beats on here are really good. And he has some great features like Sean Price, Tana Da Beast, Freeway, and Peedi Crakk. This is a very quick must listen EP. I definitely can’t wait till this dude puts out a more robust project but I’ll definitely take this one for now.

MACH HOMMY – DUMP GAWD: HOMMY EDITION

Another bad release from Mach Hommy. Really, the only good thing I can say about this release was that the beats were pretty decent. There was a lot of really hard, neck snapping beats on here. As far as the rhymes go, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Dude is whack with lyrics. I’m definitely not feeling his style at all. Put the mic down and give it a rest already. If you are going to peep this project, really just listen to the beats and that is all you need.
