Well. I no longer need to be hunting for new music for awhile now...

I love Bas' beat selection; dude has an ear for different, refreshing beats. Then he uses some crazy flows to coincide. The progression is clearly noticeable from Last Winter to this album.

Dis tew much

What an album. Just gave it a full listen and even if Kendrick gets the headlines for today, this is still so solid. FiendBas baby

This is the first Bas album I've listened too and after this I'm very inclined to go check out his last album too. From what I had heard of him before this, I was impressed but this was really good. Favorite track right now is Methylone, and Night Job is great. Really digging this and I hope people take the time to listen to it even though cornrow Kenny came through last night.

I've been fuckin with Bas for awhile but this album solidifies him as one of my favorite rappers. This project is just so clean and smooth throughout. I really feel like it has a very timeless sound, as in it's got a lot of re-playability. No gimmicks or super trendy sounds, just good smooth hip hop.

I don't want to sound like the typical fambruh with the hot take overreaction but I really think this is the kind of album that could get overlooked by mainstream hip hop listeners right now but some years from now looked and respected as a very good record.

I don't know, maybe I'm just stanning this shit super hard. But I REALLY fux with this

Honestly man, I think the production on this shit was fucking awesome. I love Miles and Miles.

Night Job has been one of my favorite songs for a while now, after giving this a listen it was pretty solid all the way through. Bas can flow pretty nice.

Dude said "until your nation apologize, im fuckin European bitches for every African nation that they colonize." Shit had my hype when I first heard it. That's fire.

This album was good. Bas is so smooth. His sound is unique. Ive listened to the album 4 or 5 times through. And it gets better with every listen.
