    No doubt, Lord Steppington is a niche album, but whenever a combination of 3rd Bass and Adult Swim is required, this one shows its pimp-hand with some dry, elevated humor.

    It all adds up to a quality album that manages not to take itself too seriously without resorting to being dumb.

    It all gives the sense of a fun, messy but inspired recording session conducted in a fug of weed smoke.

    Not only is Steppington the first must-own rap record of 2014, but it represents freedom for its makers.

    Lord Steppington is arguably his finest since Domo Genesis' No Fools mixtape, certainly an album on which his production is more freewheeling than it has been in a while, noisier, angrier, determined.

    Lord Steppington simultaneously engages the grey matter while snapping at the neck muscles. [Apr 2014, p.93]

    Lord Steppington is worth a listen for the production alone if you’re a fan of boom bap hip-hop. It’s just a shame because this could’ve been so much more if more of the focus went into writing.

Overall, it will probably be one of the most standout Hip Hop albums of the year. Featuring a bunch of really chill and icy beats and flows, while banging beats and subdued instrumentals that bring heat to polarize them. Quite a bit to enjoy here. Collapse

The lyrics were pedestrian, however, and The Alchemist and Evidence clearly didn't even try to be creative with the entire concept. ~ 6.3/10

    Best track: "Dr. Kimble": The production was dope, and the lyrics were above-average for this album.
