ARTISTRY: 3/5

The mixtape is well put together, some of these tracks would ofThe mixtape is well put together, some of these tracks would have been dope on an Album. I.E. "Breather" featuring Ty Dolla $ign & Partynextdoor. "How I know" featuring Lil Baby is another track. I love when collabs with TK Kravitz, the "Home Body" record is a great track to ride too when a guy is a companied by a female friend.There are no real radio singles on here so it.  It clearly wasn't album ready, but as a mixtape, Durk came strong. You can tell he has grown as an artist, but the overuse of melodies and autotunes is getting old.

LYRICALLY: 3/5

The delivery by Durk and all his features were A1, no off the wall flows. The vocals were appropriate, no real R&B, but the usual melodic trap vocals. Not too many quotable, hip-hop lines, but the hooks are great and catchy to most songs. On the tracks "Just flow" and "When I was little" Durk give us a glimpse of his BARS, but nothing special. R&B Durk took over this Project.

SONICALLY: 4/5

The production on this project is quality, His beat selection wasn't the best but how it flowed was perfect. From the intro with "Public Housing" and ending with "Bruddas". listening to this project it will have one reminiscing about old times, wanting to grind harder and spend some quality time with their boo thang. Pop in this mixtape on a late night while driving on the highway, it will ease your mind. Great vibes from start to end.  

OVERALL RATING: 3.5/5
