Westside Gunn – FLYGOD Is An Awesome God II
Released: 2 July 2020
Westside Gunn continues to feed his fans! Although, FLYGOD Is An Awesome God II houses shorter ceilings than it’s predecessor, FLYGOD Is An Awesome God 1, it still proves to be a valiant effort, as Westside Gunn breathes life into his young Griselda affiliates – effectively familiarizing the Griselda audience with: Stove God Cook$, Armani Caesar, Keisha Plum, and Boldy James.

Final Thoughts/Verdict: 41:57
★★★: Good; fans of the artist will find value here
Although it’s not his best work, FLYGOD Is An Awesome God II feels like a long-term investment that will pay dividends to the label as a whole. When the above up-and-coming Griselda artists/affiliates drop their individual projects, it will be to a crowd already familiar with them partially due to this tape. Chess not checkers!
★★★★★: Best in show; pinnacle release from an all-time great artist.
★★★★1/2: Stellar example of genre; peak potential.
★★★★: Excellent; recommended to all fans of artist or genre.
★★★1/2: Very good; a few bland songs or minor flaws throughout.
★★★: Good; fans of the artist will find value here.
★★1/2: Average; does little to establish the artist or maintain quality.
★★: Unexceptional; a few highlights but otherwise bland.
★1/2: Weak; unrecommended for anyone but major fans of the style and/or artist.
★: Seriously flawed; very poor work but relatively listenable.
1/2: Terrible; a true embarrassment and akin to audio masochism.
