Final thoughts: This is Florida rapper XXXTENTACION’s studio album debut and his first official solo project. After his more turn up group mixtape Members Only Vol 3 he returns with a dark and depressing album which attempts to showcase his singing ability which many of his newfound fans may not be aware of. It’s lack of content is the projects biggest downfall as it clocks in at 22:01 minutes and has only 11 tracks, one being an intro. The album felt rushed because many of the tracks feel somewhat unfinished and in need of polishing. The replay value is tremendous though because of the subject matter as it was made for those who are depressed and it’s a perfect little album for the late nights. Trippie Redd sounded like Lil Uzi on “Fuck Love” but he brought a needed energy that the album lacked to that point. In the end, this album is great for vibes and is a good introduction to the versatility of XXXTENTACION but the it could’ve been longer and had more time to be polished up. This leaves me excited for his next project “Bad Vibes” which is supposed to be releasing in the near future.
