3.5 greatErwann S. CONTRIBUTOR | October 5th 20

The cover says it all: it's gonna be a dark ride tackling the same grounds as Southern hip hop's greatest albums. While beats and flows have evolved since the 90s, their purpose haven't changed a bit. Boomin's hypnotizing beats lay foundations so that Savage can tell cold gangsta stuff. Apart from these nods to the past, what makes the record work is its overall cohesion: the whole lot flows smoothly, and Morgan Freeman's interludes only further proves how cool that dude is. 21 Savage does sometimes fall into avoidable repetition patterns, and Boomin's production is sharp but isn't his most immediately enjoyable. Nevertheless, a real cool and consistent trap record. 3.6

4.0 excellentBedex | October 3rd 20

Probable trap AOTY carried by Metro and Freeman, but not just. In terms of album construction, consistency and instrumental production this is probably the best I have ever seen for a trap album. The transitions are incredibly fluid and on point, and even their occasional absence like the abrupt pause before the vocal interlude on 8 are well chosen. The only two small issues that I see are the transition into 14, and the 11 which is the only track whose instrumental I disliked. It's not properly bad and in a vacuum it might be a fun track, but in the context of the album it sticks out a bit. Otherwise, instrumentally this is upper 4.0 quite easily. 21S also improved, and while the difference isn't as striking, he does work excellently well on a lot of tracks. You do have to look past the usual lyrical tropes that are often frankly smh (21 21, repeated p word, etc), and bizarrely there are loads of track where I found he kinda was struggling in the first third/half and then only wakes up and kicks in properly. But this still houses loads of jams (5,7,12,13) and although some are weaker (4,11), there is nothing properly awful. Also, the (intelligently few) feats are all very well integrated unlike what you find on loads of trap records. The added vocalists make sense and dont just feel like an invited rapper for the sake of namedrop. The only one I didnt quite like was Drake's, but it's mostly because the track itself is a bit on the weak side. There's loads to say and it's late and I cba to do a full track by track, but hell this is a great surprise - which plays into my rating a little ngl. 3.85

Morgan freeman is based. Savage's best work yet, Metro's a beast in the studio. 21 Savage's vocal delivery and presence is cold as ice. Plus the cover art refrence to pen and pixel is clever.
