Before listening to this album, I was familiar with each member except Reezy & Demrick. I knew Demrick had done a lot of work with Dizzy Wright in the past, but I’d never actually looked into his work. I’d never even heard of Reezy. His stage name is pretty generic, so I may have seen it here and there without paying him any attention. The album starts with a lowkey Trap song, which is to be expected from Kato. The hook from Demrick is nothing special, but the verses are all pretty good. Emilio Rojas kicks it off with some Spanish rapping, which is kinda cool even though I have no idea what he was saying. It’d be weird for me to get upset about that while giving passes to mumble rappers. I can’t see any of these members actually being looked at as legends when they die, but they’ve obviously still got time. Jarren Benton is easily my favorite member, even though his flow on the intro was repetitive.

Divin’ in your bitch like Michael Phelps.

A lot of the members of the group have very similar voices, making them hard to distinguish. This is only a problem when the entire group is performing on one song though. I’m not feelin’ the tag from DJ Hoppa in which a girl moans his name. That was a bit much for me. Flood the Night is an autotuned “croon fest” about catching “a vibe.” I’m not really feelin’ it to be honest. Emilio killed his verse though. He’s the one aspect of that song that saves it from being completely forgettable. By the time I reached track three, I was completely sold on him.

Understandin’ me now?

That nigga can rap his ass off. Track three is all about having pride in who you are. The beat from DJ Hoppa is pretty good. Jarren killed his verse. I love how they’re all kinda dissing each other on this track.

What the fuck you mean? Competition don’t exist
Try to throw against, we just scratch ’em off the list
Talk my shit bitch, I hope you take offense
Just know I’ma get it, boy, as long as paper prints

The beat on Icebox is dope af. The hook from Jarren is decent. Emilio Rojas killed his verse once again. His flow is smooth as hell. Dizzy Wright slaughtered his verse. Same goes for Pricetag. The majority of this album follows the same formula. There’s not much in the way of originality. It doesn’t really seem impressive until you take into account the fact that it was all made in one week, but even then, there are 9 members contributing to the project. It shouldn’t take more than a week for 9 people to make 13 songs. I’d say the true stars of this project are Jarren Benton, Emilio Rojas, and Dizzy Wright.

I honestly preferred the production from DJ Hoppa over that of Kato. The Count on That beat is smoother than a motherfucker. The beat on What Means the World was a bit repetitive, but Jarren Benton slaughtered his verse. The other MC’s did a great job as well.

Gutter is hard as fuck. I loved Emilio’s verse, and Audio Push both killed their verses. I loved the way Reezy & Dizzy were trading bars as well. Jarren & Kato were definitely in charge of Gas Up.

Lil mama ass fat and she got a thong in it
I ain’t gon’ judge it; ain’t nothin’ wrong with it

lol. I was starting to get bored by the time it finished, but In Tune thankfully recaptured my attention. Reezy sounds like Mac Miller on the hook. I liked his work on the following track as well, even though it just sounded like he was doing a Drake impression. I don’t usually like Cloud Rap, but Pricetag’s flow was dope af. Peace to the Land was a phenomenal way to end the album. Hearing all of them go in over that hard ass beat was invigorating. They all killed it.


This album is pretty good. It feels more like a compilation than a regular album, which is to be expected from a 9 member group. I’m glad I listened and became more familiar with artists like Reezy & Demrick, although the only new artist I plan on looking into more in the future is Emilio Rojas. I don’t think there are any consistent flaws with this project. It’s dope.
