Hit the jump below for download, review, and track listing.

Overall, this album showcases more of SonReal’s vocal talents with him utilizing the full range of his abilities. SonReal’s approach to music is to make things that he wants to make. He understands that he can’t please everyone with his music and doesn’t attempt to do so. This album features collaborations with Tona, Joe Scudda, Rich Kidd, Saukrates and Ali Milner. Be sure to keep an eye out for interviews with Tona and Rich Kidd from us. This album was made possible because of the producers for this, including LoKeynote, Cafe Society, Big Pops, Vokab, Chanes, Aliby, Matt Brevner, SoundSmith, Burd & Keyz, Blaise, Classified, and 2oolman.

With “Blast Off”, the first track after the intro, it is very similar to his previous works and is definitely a good jam. Next up is “For Life”, a feel good jam that he does with Tona. I really like the overall feel and message that goes through with this song – something good to listen to to break through the winter blues. “Clap 4 Me” seems like a really personal song and opens up with a reflection from SonReal about his recent career. “Out There” is a story about a girl struggling through life and falling through demons of a city, calling out for hope. “She Gone” is the most different track out of the album and is the pick of the justalilhype! Crew. It reminds us of “Smile” from The Lightyear Mixtape, which was also our favourite off of the mixtape. Be sure to check out “Haunted” as well.

A nice addition to the album is the obvious inclusion of the electrical guitar throughout many tracks. SonReal has worked with guitars before, especially on his first albums The Stroll and Good Morning. Support your artist and purchase these albums.

Overall, this is a solid album to a good year, especially for SonReal. We hope that the rest of the year for our artists are just as good.
