It sounds like someone advised him to say 'hey yo' then start rapping with minimal shenanigans and he tried for real to do it. I'm glad he did it.
I'm not the right person to ask about Stove cuz I like him. He has at least one line that catches me on just about anything he's on.
And yeah, them booms and baps are up on the scene. It can be done.
I need to listen to the whole series again. There's hella good times throughout..that's for sure. If he really does stop after the 2nd half of 8, he will have had a fun azz run during this 'stay in your lane but do it right' era. So many guys like him got a chance to shine that they probably wouldn't have gotten in that 'you have to try to be multiple things on an album or you're not going to be viewed as important' era.

lots of warbled, fuzzy, and otherwise distorted samples, roughly chopped. almost like boom bap with a vaporwave ａｅｓｔｈｅｔｉｃ, or maybe oneohtrix point never's replica era, or constrobuz's beats on mfn exquire's projects from the early 2010s, or some combination of all of the above. i can't quite put my finger on it but i do like it quite a lot. i feel like there was some of this sound on mach-hommy's pray for haiti but it was less dialed up and the instrumentals were more straighforward. some the beats on HWH8 are a truly experimental and feel like a logical progression to a more pyschedelic and lavish sound, coming from the grimy, dark, and moody post-alchemist daringer sound that dominated most of griselda's early and middle catalog. there are also a tasteful number of drumless beats, mostly towards the end. they're a nice break from the crunchy snares found in the first half of the project. some of the features are expected (conway, boldy, jada) but others are from out of nowhere (sauce walka?!) and they all kill it. the only lackluster verses are from westside and that's expected at this point in his career as it's known that he mostly gets by on his delivery and has an occasional truly good bar here and there. overall a very enjoyable listen that i wanted to immediately go back to. exemplary stuff!

Have to admit I'm getting tired of the Hitler gimmick at this point. Quality music is rare these days, so I suppose I have to stomach it on some level.
On a positive note, he seems to have gotten the best out of all the guests on here and Westside wasn't too much of a slouch in comparison. He rapped better on Flygod to me, so that's why I can't rate it better than that release.
