Then as the initial release date was approaching he changed it to TBA and assured everyone it was coming, he just needed to get it right.

This is very good
10 songs, 33min, 2 guests
9 songs of Phonte rappin' & absolutely killin it
starts hard, mellows out towards the end
Don't really understand a choice that was made for one particular song (which I think is also the weakest link on the album, but still a good song)

10 songs, 2 under 2 minutes, many of them dominated by interludes ... I want more damnit.

That said I really like it. "Cry No More" and "Such is Life" stick out after first listen.

Why he ain't wanna rap with Freddie ?

Phonte can rap his ass off, man.

I like the strategy.

Although on Charity the "flexing" portion included a lot of "real shit" as well, ex. "The Good Fight"

but he's not (or no longer) listed as artist @ +FE
so I don't know if he's still active as a recording artist.

In response to Reply # 51


  

          

I thought of him because he was on Charity Starts at Home, and the Sender came out around the same time.

Was looking on YouTube and only finding songs that were 5-6 years old.

Exceptional album.

A lot of parallels to 4:44. Short but dense. Well-executed. Mature themes.

A lot of replay value.

like just forget it. It's mind-blowing how good he is at rap. Don't even seem like it's hard for him, either.

^^ my exact point in that post was that the most impressive part is how effortless he makes it all sound and feel. Like he's not trying at all.

29. "My only complaint "
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

And it's the same complaint I have with the new Elzhi joint too is that every song has basically the same mellow tempo and vibe. At least on first couple listens. It's very short so it keeps my attention, but on both albums I would have personally preferred a switch up here and there.

He really came into his own with this one.

And I think we really got spoiled with this -and- Black Milk -and- Elzhi & Khrysis who all, in different ways, perfected their craft.

I gotta give Black Milk more spins. Everytime he drops an album it's so ... unique and new I need to sit with it a few times to appreciate the crazy shit he's doing on the production tip.

"Sweet You", "Expensive Genes" and "Cry No More" are my favorites right now - overall this is great.

Love the way he crafts his songs and albums. I could be totally wrong, but he just seems like a good dude. Always willing to talk and take pics after shows and puts in work on stage. Great album as expected.

Which just makes me like him so much more. His brutal honesty is hella endearing. And it doesn't hurt that he's so fucking good on the mic.

You nailed it re: him bringing back his LB flow, and I love the mix of the instrumental and voice/singing during the verses. Is that background singing a sample ?

Speaking of which, any production credits yet ?

I was looking yesterday but didn't find anything. The vocal sounds like an in-studio sample as opposed to one off a record, but I'm not sure.

While I don’t mind 10 track albums...this one is a bit short. If you do 10 tracks I would prefer for them to all be full songs.

With that said...that’s the only complaint. Album is dope as hell and I’ll be playing it for a while.

53. "the correlation between extensive touring and artistic/performative "
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

evolution has probably been discussed on okp in the past,
but I still want to point out how this is applicable to
so many artists. Black Thought/The Roots being the most visible.

I can't remember a year where I didn't see any tourdates for Little Brother /Phonte/Foreign Exchange...and you can hear the progress in Phonte's performance..
Dude is nearing his 40's and in peak condition when it comes to MC-ing...

And like someone else said in this thread, So Help Me God is a rap clinic.

Dope lines, topical, stories. Raps haha!

My gripes are minor. I wish the album was just a little longer (like 2 tracks longer). The beats are good with some leaning to serviceable. Nothing I feel the urge to skip especially with how good the verses are, but I would have liked a 9th or Khrysis soul-boom-bap type joint or two. Just one or two haha.

Otherwise, great album and "Such is Life" is everything.

I don't like the beat anymore because its just a loop. ALC didn't FLIP IT ENOUGH!

Enjoyable video too.

funny, I was just catching up on QLS yesterday and Quest asked Phonte what he's been up to, dude replied he was redoing his master bathroom. He said he has 2.5 bathrooms. That crib in the video can't have only 2.5 bathrooms lol.
