Thoughts: These Griselda boys are having one hell of a 12 month stretch. Including the Griselda project that dropped last December with Benny the Butcher and Westside Gunn, this is Conway’s fourth project in like a ten month period and they have all been good. This album is his most complete and diverse project that I’ve heard (I haven’t checked out all his older stuff) and it’s incredibly refreshing. Some critics point to Griselda as a whole being sort of one dimensional in that they only rap about drugs, but Conway steps comfortably outside that box here while maintaining his wit and high level lyricism. The production on this album is pretty elite and basically every feature is excellent, with Method Man coming through with an insane verse. Every song on here is good and there are many bangers. This is one of the best rap albums of 2020.

Verdict: 8/10 (Must Listen)
