These days Pusha T suffers from not really knowing what he’s good at. It’s up to him if he wants to stand out and do his own thing or follow current trends in rap. Unfortunately Pusha doesn’t sound like he knows what is best for him. On Wrath of Cain, it is clear that Pusha T is not quite as skilled on the mic as he once was in his glory days with Clipse. Pusha T makes up for his lack of groundbreaking lyricism found on Hell Hath No Fury with attempts at having a more versatile sound by adding catchier choruses, and using huge cinematic beats a la Rick Ross’ Rich Forever. Wrath of Cain shows Pusha T’s “versatility” wheels begin to churn. Wrath of Caine is a much better than either of his previous EPs because Pusha is attempting to add more flavor and imagination into his previously stale solo releases. Pusha uses Old Testament religious imagery, and making it more modern. His attempts to revive his relevancy and to possibly capture the elements of Clipse’s classic sound, making it more modern are largely successful; although many of Pusha’s flaws that were on his previous mixtapes are still here. Wrath of Caine shows, Pusha unable to find his creative sweet spot and that he wants to improve his sound which is worthy of praise.

yeah the first 3 paragraphs could form into one big intro if you wanted and there isn't a whole lot
about Wrath of Caine itself, but I definitely agree with what you're getting at.

Push is more mature on this one, and he's definitely channeling Malice a lot on some of the tracks
here, which I really really love.

Trouble on my mind is a classic. Is anything on h here as good?

Not a bad review, but a bit wordy/ meandering. U can get rid of the entire 1st paragraph por ejemplo. Try going thru yr reviews after writing and removing all reDundant words or phrasing.
