Solid Project; Can’t Wait for More
In my opinion, Metro Boomin improved a lot after his temporary hiatus. His beats are much different from his previous work in a good way while creating that same dark murky vibe. In addition, the features in this album were at their best. Swae Lee sang beautiful melodies in his two features, 21 Savage’s flow is exceptional and he surprisingly does not do bad lyrically compared to his previous stuff. Kodak Black does way better on his feature than Zeze, and Travis Scott brings back Rodeo throwbacks for the better. Overall, all of these tracks work relatively well as an album. I feel like Metro Boomin, while staying on his dark side, seems to lighten up a little with his beats. His production no longer seems as generic as his previous work in this album and is much more diverse, from a Latino sound in the Offset song to a relaxing sound in the Swae Lee song to nothing in one of the 21 Savage songs (I forgot the titles lol). The transitions between the tracks are also very solid and make the album seem like a whole work rather than 13 singles mashed together. The only thing I don’t like about this album are how some of the samples are only used in the intro of some tracks and then gets interrupted by the main beat, which in my opinion, is a little worse than the sampled beat. Not a great album, but a solid album nonetheless.
