    Rap Album One breaks away from rap conventions in an effortless manner.

    Approach Rap Album One is an acquired taste that's worth acquiring because it isn't for everyone, but it's excellent.

    His offbeat personality and refusal to pound the toad most traveled mark out this wildly talented bearded savant as a potential game-changer. [Dec 2013, p.89]

    It's only when he applies his production tricks to his own voice on tracks like "Reflection" when things tend to go awry. But its this experimental bent that makes Rap Album One stand out, and deploying these skills judicially in the future will undoubtedly pay off on the evidence of this solid, eclectic debut.

    Far from an ill-advised sideways movement for its maker, from production to rhymes, Rap Album One finds a well-deserved home within Stones Throw’s prestigious catalogue.

    It won't get your blood pumping, but the dusky vibes are markedly idiosyncratic for a crowded landscape.

    The album may be hard to connect to on anything other than a cerebral level, but sometimes that's the best way to connect.
