Play this, skip that: ‘reports from the field’

I self Devine reports from the field

skip that:

“Get away” – some times repeating a hook can be too much. This is one of those tracks. Add that with the beat that didn’t grab me.

“nation time” – flow is slow enough to make this track out of place in this album.

play this:

“Standing on ten”- great flow, great production hook repeated too much
“no matter what u call it , it is what it is / the water stays wet the carbon gonna fizz

“oblivious” – this where the momentum builds in the album.

“flat black” – flat back makes me nostalgic of 90s gangsta rap. This track is wy the albums called reports from the field.

Others : “twizzled” and “pretty sickness”
