★★★1/2: Very good; a few bland songs or minor flaws. FM! is familiarly unorthodox. Vince Staples borrows the usual gun and gang talk prevalent in West Coast Hip-Hop, but contrasts it against electronic-influenced instrumentals, still uniquely Hip-Hop, drowned in trap-speaking drums. Vince also calls on a host of West Coast artists for FM! including Ty$, Kehlani, Earl Sweatshirt, Tyga, Jay Rock, Buddy, Kamayiah and of course Big Boy In The Morning family!
★★★1/2: As with Kilo Kish’s other projects, I’m looking for her to stand-out. For much of this EP, Kish is secondary to the production, her voice gets lost in the production – except for on Prayer.
