It’s no secret that underground heads look for consistency: “bangin” beats and sharp, perceptive rhymes…no Bull. As a staple in the underground community Edo G. is the last person I’d expect to stray from this formula. His current work A Face in The Crowd lacks the consistency we expect from a hip hop veteran of his caliber. From start to end the sound teeters between underground and mainstream on every other track, failing to produce a cohesive album. Even the interludes seem out of place. Yes there are some joints worth mentioning Fastlane, Dummies, Like That, Ain’t Gon Wait, but the rest just don’t do it for me. In my opinion it deserves a 3/10, if that.
Disagree? Tell me why.
