Review Summary: "Where you come from? I just came from Alaska."

“What happened to my face?”, “Why did you scar my beautiful face?”, “Why did you hurt my face?” these are a few of the many questions Lil B asks on the intro to his 43rd mixtape, ‘Glassface’. Unlike many of Lil B’s other mixtapes ‘Glassface’ is much more serious in terms of beats and lyrics. Don’t get me wrong, this mixtape still offers some Lil B’s usual lowbrow banter with tracks like, “Love Problems” and “Gudda”, but the majority of the lyrics usually have a more mature theme to them. But don’t worry, Lil B’s still spits with his usual drunken-esque stupor that he is known for and he even throws in a few of his signature YESSS’s for good measure. It just sounds different this mixtape around because of the serious nature of most of the lyrics and the lack of the bass heavy trap beats. When Lil B does try his hand at a more mature sound on a mixtape the end result is usually a mixed bag, and ‘Glassface’ is no exception.

Lil B succeeds multiple times creating a well executed conventional hip-hop song on ‘Glassface’. Tracks like “No Options” and “Basedworld Motivation” are excellent examples of what a mature Lil B song should sound like. They both have relaxed beats and Lil B isn’t going full blown retard on the mic. Dispite the fact that there are some fairly solid hip-hop tracks on ‘Glassface’, the mixtape never really does anything adventurous and a lot of the tracks, besides a handful of standouts, start to sound the same and run into each other. Lil B did this more mature style better on ‘God’s Father’ and a few of the songs on ‘Glassface’ sound like they were songs he recorded for that mixtape but decided to toss because they weren’t as strong or as easy to remember. These more lackluster tracks are fairly forgivable due to the fact that there are a whopping 28 tracks on this mixtape and a few bad apples can easily be tossed.

As I stated earlier, ‘Glassface’ is one of Lil B’s more serious mixtapes and it should be taken as such. You shouldn’t expect this to sound like ‘Blue Flame’ or ‘Crime Fetish’. Even though this isn’t as wild and spontaneous as his other releases, this mixtape won’t likely make fans out of those who don’t like his style already. Although this isn’t as memorable as his other mixtapes this is still a worthy addition to your Lil B mixtape collection.
