★★★1/2: Uzi spits bar-after-bar in rapid succession with no hooks, over G-Herbo’s drill classic, “Gangway”.
At What Cost by GoldLink was one of my most anticipated albums coming into 2017 after GoldLink’s 2016 effort And After That We Didn’t Talk. GoldLink met and exceeded my expectations with At What Cost, dropping song of the year “Crew” with DMV-family Brent Faiyaz and Shy Glizzy and another top 20 song in “Summatime” featuring Wale and Radiant Children.
1. Goldlink f/ Shy Glizzy & Brent Fayiaz – “Crew” (Teddy Walton)
2. Sampha – “Timmy’s Prayer” (Rodaidh McDonald & Kanye West)
3. Sampha – “Blood On Me” (Rodaidh McDonald)
I’ve only been into Uzi’s music for about a year now. With that being said, Luv is Rage 2 appears to be the “break up” album out of Uzi’s “Luv” based discography. If Luv is Rage 1 was the “falling in Love” album, and Perfect Luv and Lil Uzi Vert vs. The World were the “in love” albums, then Luv is Rage 2 is the love breakup fallout album, with Uzi’s love interest “Brittany” being at the center.
