Ok, maybe I shouldn't have said garbage, because he's not. But there's something about his music that I can't fukk with. He got that Ace Hood syndrome...I know he can rap but something about his music is off

This is how I feel about his music.

He's clearly not wack, but his music just comes off kinda generic. Definitely has that feeling like something is off or missing. He can rap, but I feel like if you've heard one of his songs, you've heard 'em all.

Been saying this, he's content to make generic Harlem-lite music with not much personality or originality. He has a good voice but it's wasted on generic production and generic lyrics.

I thought Kairi Chanel was dope, but Paranoia wasn't, and this, while, I have only skimmed, was not impressive. He may go on to the next level, which most of the tracks on here scream, but he seems to have ceded some of the slight edges and qualities that made his music interesting, or worth checking for.

Yeah. Plus like the last project I feel like he's just settling.

Kairi channel was dope.

But these last two projects feel like he's just half assing it.

They not bad. But they could be much better

I prefer Paranoia. Don't know what the fukk you nikkas listening to. This tape is cool but sounds like he didn't put effort into these tracks (guess that's why it's a mixtape). Paranoia had better production and songs. I've been listening to that a lot recently

there's some good songs, but there's also some that sound the same. i'm still listening to his Paranoia project, it's also more diverse

this sounds better than the last one...

I have to take sons music for what it is. He rides the beat well..he's never going to wow you with his rhymes tho so it's like I can't look at him like some elite rapper. Don on the other hand is that nikka all the way with the rhymes. Sometimes you can't force expectations on people

Agree. Like a Big Sean type.
