VERDICT

★★★: 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!
