mumble rap

Artist: 
Lil Yachty
Label: 
Quality Control Music

Lil Yachty's newest album Lil Boat 2 is probably what you imagine when you think of Lil Yachty. The album doesn't expand upon the popular rapper's repertoire. Auto-tune is heavy, the beats are repetitive, and the verses are mumble rap. This doesn't necessarily mean that I dislike Lil Boat 2 but it does get exhausting listening to what feels like the same song over and over again.

Sounds Like: 
Migos - Quavo and Offset are both on this album and the beat of "TALK TO ME NICE" is just like something off of Culture
Sounds Like: 
Lil Uzi Vert - Autotune singing and mumble rapping. A bit darker sounding than Uzi though

Lil Pump’s self-titled mixtape has been all the buzz in the hip-hop scene recently. Although the beats sound distorted, bass-heavy, and basic, Lil Pump’s voice is of a medium frequency and has a youthful tone. (Lil Pump is 17). Some of the songs off of the mixtape, even the most popular ones like “Gucci Gang”, originally premiered on his SoundCloud. This logically explains the lack of production value on the album.

Sounds Like: 
Lil Yachty - Both "lil" and both rely on repetition and good hooks to carry a song
Sounds Like: 
2 Chainz - Featured on "Iced Out" and most beats have a similar tone

Don't let the album artwork and features fool you! Although A$AP Mob tries desperately to be like one of the old school greats like N.W.A., Run DMC, etc., A$AP Mob has once again fallen short. Not to say I didn't enjoy Cozy Tapes Vol. 1 but let's just say that Vol 2. is similar in the fact that the mixtape is nothing that will leave you astounded by the skill of the group. I was so excited for this mixtape after reading the list of features. I thought, "Aw man, A$AP Rocky, Playboi Carti, and Jaden Smith on a track together?!

Sounds Like: 
A$AP Rocky - obviously since he is one of the prominent members of A$AP Mob. Mumble rap and darker beats
Sounds Like: 
Playboi Carti - On many of the hooks. Chanting hooks and sometimes high energy
