4.0 excellentJasonCarne | June 23rd 21

Really solid jazzy hip-hop that just continues to get better as it goes along with a very strong back half.

There is a lot of boom in the jazz-rap scene ever since Kendrick Lamar?s TPAB was released and because of it we are seeing a small wave of more ?jazz-based? jazz rap albums than the more traditional sample-based seen in what originally was known as ?jazz rap?. Not that one is better than the other, but there is something more fulfilling when listening to TPAB or to Avantdale Bowling Club?s self-titled because of how explosive and jazz-ie they are rather than just some jazz sample. So, on this new renovation from the Richmond-based rapper, we are seeing him flex that more original jazz ideas and also bringing in a lot of what makes Rapsody so good, a little bit more chamber jazz ideas than is seen on TPAB. For the most part, FMMAWLLH is a jammed-packed record with a lot of class and a ton of self-reflection that we all kind of need in this transition period out of pandemic season. Although not perfect since he is a rather one-dimensional rapper and some of the features add nothing other than a weird distraction. A very solid release all around for anyone wanting a more ?jazz-ie? sound.
