Alter Ego Lyrics
NOT QUITE THERE
All of the skits. For what?
Snakes and Ladders: The beat is good. Smart sampling as well. If you listen carefully you will hear â€œCome downâ€¦ Come upâ€â€¦ but the rest is boring.
Big 5: Also a sampled beat and yet again the beat is the only thing worth paying attention to. He could have left it on the EP but all the guys calling themselves â€œhustlersâ€ will relate and enjoy it.
Mistakes: The story telling type of lyricism AKA uses stands out in this track and thankfully so. His flow takes you to your own past mistakes while the beat makes it a track worth putting on repeat.
Victory lap remix: Amu, HHP and Tumi go in hard on this beat. The best verses Iâ€™ve heard from these artists and itâ€™s still a sick ass beat. â€œYou aint gotta clap for a legendâ€
Reign: This features Buffalo Soulja and is one of the only unreleased track that will have your head bopping and rapping along. The flow Aka has with the realest lyrics on a sick ass beat work well with Buffalo Souljaâ€™s rasta-like hook.
The tracks that are worth going crazy about have already been released which make the rest of the album extremely average. True to a hip hop album, a lot of the tracks are deep but nothing thatâ€™s going to be a classic.
A lot was expected from the album but all it gave was good production and a flow for the industry that is not â€œmotswakoâ€. Letâ€™s hope he can give us classics with the next album because he has the potential.
RATING:â€“ Itâ€™s a good album but itâ€™s boring.
