    It never reaches for more, and to bludgeon it for achieving its minor ambitions is bizarre practice. It may not leap, but it never stumbles. Calm down, sit back and vibe.

    Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho conveys exactly what fans might expect from two of the hottest trap rappers out. Soaring, robo-rhythmic tunes? Check. Endless braggadocio? Check. A seamless blend of vocoder-tinged singing and cocky flows? Check, check, Nike Swoosh. But don’t expect a structured, meticulous project. Rather, it feels as if La Flame and the Migos leader went into the studio, indulged in the ganja, and all grooviness broke loose.

    There is no palpable effort or discomfort on Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho, resulting in a perfectly fine album that no one will remember next year or maybe even next month.

    Huncho Jack’s liveliness tends to come from everywhere except Quavo and Travis Scott. The protean energy that buoy their respective works are sadly absent.

    Ttheir often magnetic signature styles veer close to gimmickry here. ... But the production props them up strongly.

    A competent collobarative tape that nevertheless proves that Quavo should stick to Migos and Travis to curating his own albums.

With the song, many people could easily tell that there was no doubt about chemistry between the two. Fast foward to 2017, and after many teasers and rumors, they come together once again to give the fans "Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho", a collaborative album from the Texas born rapper, Travis Scott, and Quavo, a member of the Atlanta rap group, Migos. With 13 songs in total and 41 minutes in length, fans and critics would be expecting a very interesting album, from start to finish. Guest appearances from Takeoff and Offset, both also from Migos, show even greater chemistry they all have when working on a song. The sounds the album gave off show that they were approaching commercially successful songs, songs that would be played at parties and on the radio. Almost every track doesn't fail to give off the vibe they intended to have. Songs like "Eye 2 Eye" and "Huncho Jack" are backed with stellar production from Murda Beatz, the detail put on the instrumental is something to pay close attention to. While this album has its highs, I had a few complaints about it too. For example, songs like "Go", "Saint" and "Black & Chinese" are some of the shortest songs in the whole album, with each song clocking in at a total of only 2 minutes. Having the songs be at least 3 minutes long would have been good, so you can enjoy the best out of both rappers. Another issue I had with the album was the final track, "Best Man". It was a track that I did not find enjoyable compared to the rest of the tracks, and is a song I would skip most of the time if it shows up. Throughout the project, a good amount of auto tune is used from both rappers, and they seem to do an equal job on each track together. Overall, this album is backed by amazing beats and production, and for me is a very exciting collaboration from the two rappers. Expand

    For one, the production is definitely fair, but I've heard better from these respective artists, more so Travis Scott. The themes this album tackles feel more forced, which I kind of expected. While Travis talks about romance and feelings in this very intoxicating tone and while Quavo mostly flaunts his money, these two ideas would probably mesh to make themes that clash too poorly or triy to find common grounds. Both artist use voice modifications commonly, so their vocals do mesh well, a positive this album has, but both artists practice on their own turf. While these two artists did their victory lap after a year of prosperity, them finding common ground to rap about probably resulted in this - very mediocre and poorly expressed. Overall, its an easy album to the ears, though it could even go a little easier, but this project could've used better producers, more creative ideas, or, well, not even done at all - did we really need a Quavo/Travis collab? Or Culture 2 and Astroworld already?!

Travis and Quavo both demonstrate their mastery of autotune, but unfortunately the lack of lyricism made most of the songs on this projects repetitive and seemingly generic. Travis has always been an artist who thrives when he is utilizing a mixture of flows and a wide array of beats, but I just didn’t find that with this project. Travis seemed effortless on this project and even showed some digression from his previous albums. Quavo demonstrated his typical behavior, which made this album sound similar to the rest of his contributions. I was really looking forward to more rapping and memorable hooks, but all I got was a repetition of auto tuned phrases. Travis is one of my favorite artists, but I was regretfully disappointed by this project. Without the hype song beats, this album would’ve been a total flop for me. This is definitely part music, but not something I’ll be bumping for a very long time like I have with previous work by these two. Expand

    this album had like one or two good songs. Quavo and Travis Scott doesn't really work out that great
