Feb 28, 2022Ghetto Gods was created through a plague and a racial reckoning. So, it's understandable that the fun factor and the tempo have been dialled down. Heavy is the pen. Still, when those heroic ghosts and EarthGang pop in synchronicity, the music is downright out of this world.

The duo really find themselves in a new space here, bringing their signature psychedelic/creative bars and flows and meeting them with very of the times trap production.
All in all this is a very easy listening project and it oozes chill vibes in the best ways… This can be thrown on in the background and folks might just be jamming to it, but if you sit with it and listen in on the lyrics, the experience is much different and I really love that duality...
Favorite tracks are GHETTO GODS, ALL EYES ON ME, And SMOKE SUM.
My rating is going to be a STRONG 8… Expand
