still digesting KIRK, which is up-and-down imo, but the baby man deserves his own thread

Still digesting Kirk too, but I love Baby on Baby

thanks mods!

anyway, listened to KIRK a second time and it has moments of both dullness and exhilaration. the album suffers from dreams & nightmares syndrome where the first song is such a creative peak that everything else can't help but pale in comparison. there's a push/pull between dababy's effort to make another bars-first record in the mold of baby on baby or blank blank and some a&r booking a few too many guest stars in desperate search for a radio single (does nicki minaj really bring anything worthwhile to a song in 2019?. the songs with kevin gates and stunna 4 times are good, but the best songs are the ones where baby gets to be baby and just lay down 2 mins worth of bars without taking a breath. it's a blessing that baby came of age in the time of 35 minute rap albums, instead of the age of 78 minute rap albums--since his intensity is always turned up to 11, his schtick can turn from exciting to groan-inducing pretty quickly.

still, dude is a very welcome presence in rap and he keeps killing guest verses. gonna do what i've done for his other albums and put the best moments on my rap playlist and say goodbye to the rest.

two months pass...

just performed on snl and "bop" is well on its way to becoming his next one to blanket the airwaves... slightly disappointed about that second part as that song feels like such a sequel -- especially to "suge" of course but also some other scattered lines thruout some of his other hits. it's still a solid song tho
