This past Friday, Lil Uzi, Don Toliver, and Rich The Kid dropped new projects. Here’s my honest and kinda brutal review. I said what I said and I mean what I said.
First Things First: Eternal Atake (Deluxe)- Luv vs. The World 2
Okay, we all know Uzi dropped the delayed original album, Eternal Atake, but the Deluxe (LUV vs. The World 2) album is a different story. Featuring Chief Keef, Future, Young Thug, Lil Durk, Young Nudy, and Syd, Lil Uzi came with the heat through 32 tracks. There’s “Bean (Kobe)” featuring our own Chief Keef, “No Auto” with Lil Durk, and “Strawberry Peels” featuring Young Thug.
Final Conclusion: HIT!!! Eternal Atake (Deluxe)- Luv vs. The World 2 is top two, but not two.
Next Up: Heaven or Hell
Let me put you on to Don Toliver. To be completely honest with you, I’ve never heard of him until I hear a snippet of the song on “Euphoria” on his most recent album, Heaven or Hell featuring the upcoming artist, Kaash Paige, who’s known for her debut track, “Love Songs,” and the one and only Travis Scott. Start with the songs “Euphoria” and “Cardigan.” You won’t be disappointed.
Final Conclusion: HIT!!! Don Toliver is an upcoming artist that is defining the sound of Houston along with Travis Scott. This is definitely an album that you’ll wanna bump 24/7.
Last For A Reason: Boss Man
I can’t lie to you guys, I don’t really listen to Rich the Kid. I streamed the album because I saw the queen of rap’s name. Yes, that’s Nicki Minaj. Did you really have to ask that?
The 19-track album features DaBaby, Nicki Minaj, Lil Baby, Lil Tjay, and NBA YoungBoy. I tried to get into the song “Stuck Together” featuring Lil Baby, but I was just disappointed. It literally gave me a headache. However, “Not Sorry” does not disappoint as much as the rest of the songs. We all know Nicki saved the track.
Final Conclusion: MISS!!! I was rooting for him, but Rich The Kid could’ve kept this album in the vault. Sorry, not sorry!
You mean to tell me that you haven’t listened yet? What are you waiting for? Go stream these new albums NOWWWWW!!! Hit me up and let me know what you think.
