|3.5 great||dihstyle69 | March 11th 17|
definitely a solid effort but it could and should've been way better. the skits brought absolutely nothing to the table and the interlude pales in comparison to the rest of the tracks. these shortcomings create pacing issues that really damage an otherwise great project, full of dirty, nasty and creative beats, bars on top of bars and droog's exceptional mc skills. plus, why no "42"? why no "vigilantes" instead of "help"? why? 3.5-

Funny that this ol droog was initially conjectured as Nas incognito, cuz Nas hasn't come through with this much character or conspicuous lines since Illmatic. A self-claimed rap superhero and certified cancer-stick spokesman, ex-fiend who's moved onto green tea and tangerines, loss-hater whose marked references include Charizard and Redman's MTV Cribs appearance. The skits are irrelevant and terse, but verse-work and dust-grit and otherwise guests go a long way -- a prompt yarn about an impromptu cop killer is fitted with a beat just as manic and when he wants to 'rock' everyone involved ups the ante. When the beat turns into a circus, in comes ringmaster Danny Brown. The Droog is so into skill tho. Enough to know that it should take precedence over skin in the rap game, enough to think that if you don't succeed swiftly you may as well just surrender, enough to profess he's better than all of em anyway. "I'm sick of these sycophants who want to make their idols proud / I want my hero to hear me and shit his pants". We've all got dreams.

Potential. Your Old Droog has the potential to be a great rap artist: the beats are classic East Coast boom bap, the flow is polished, the lyrics come fast and convey Droog's own experiences and ideas. With that being said, this album on the grand scale sounds a bit too much like the great era of East Coast hip hop. It conjures up too many thoughts of the past and leaves Droog without his own true identity. Grandma Hips and Bangladesh are hits whereas White Rappers, My Girl is a Boy and You Can Do It! (Give Up) are misses. Also, the skits are so unnecessary on this album; they are neither fun or interesting.

Your Old Droog delivered a banging album from top to bottom.
