Thought the album started strong, but faded significantly with a lot of beats that are just way too slow. Sunkist was dope, and I really dug the joint with Bronze....but yeah, zero replay value really.
The artwork on this joint is crazy. With Bronze Nazereth and Killah Priest features, I hoped for a little more replay value on this project. I also need to get back to it. Hus can make a classic and I think Cocaine Beach is the closest thing he's done to one so far. His catalog runs so deep. I think he needs to get a little better at trimming the fat on some of his releases. It's kind of a peeve of mine that he releases so many tracks (and remixes of tracks) that have been released elsewhere. And the content doesn't vary enough for me. A lot of coke, b***hes, money and SuperDry raps.
All that said, I think dude's sound is top tier. His voice and cadence is dope and he's got a great ear for production. I also think he deserves a lot of props for putting other artists on. He took the opportunity of that MMG release hosted by Roc Marc and put all his people on through Digi Crates. A lot of the artists I f**k with and that are getting buzz, I first heard through Hus. Westside Gunn, Conway, Mach Hommy, Smoovth, Rozewood, Crimeapple, Al.Divino, Rosati, SageInfinite, Da Flyy Hooligan, etc. not to mention all the producers. He helped carve a lane for a lot of people.
some great beats on this and his ear IS great overall. nice samples on here. half way through and feeling it more than the first listen. i think all the features just make it more fresh and interesting but he doesnt need them to make a dope album. he can hold a project down solo and kill it. average subject matter for sure but he has appeal for a few other reasons as we now.
