Ok, I just heard this new album by Bas and I wasn't expecting it to be great, but it's really goddam good.
You all need to hear this:
BAS - TO HIGH TO RIOT
There are some hints of latter day Kanye in the production, but the songs are lyrical. There's an almost underground feel to it reminiscent of El-p, but with more soul. I'd also compare it to Kendrick in terms of lyrical content, and Pusha in terms of beat choices.
Features from J. Cole and Cozz.
I'm just really surprised by how much I like it. If I continue listening to it and don't get bored, this could potentially be a big one for me.
Let me know what y'all think.
