I didn't mind the album at first but listening to it more I noticed how uninspired and shallow the production was... as well as Denzel's lyricism compared to his other projects. Light was okay but Dark and some parts of Grey just overall felt extremely boring and generic....
Well yea, n64 is his best work so far, but just bc he set the bar high with his debut album, doesn’t take away from the fact that taboo was definitely a great, unique and enjoyable album. we’ll hear a lot from him this is just the start. i think the purpose of taboo was to put himself out there more while still being able to distinguish himself from his peers, which is why u might’ve found it “generic” despite being unlike any other hiphop album dropped in 2018, except “?” by x , which was a horrible attempt at blending too many genres and sounds in one album.
I feel like denzel atleast managed to do that without sacrificing much quality.
you listen to dogshit artists like bladee so you cannot talk you white drainer! and also listen to a project other than ta13oo that shit is trash! overhyped by music obsessed nerds who discovered him last year
It's obvious when people say that ta13oo is the best denzel project they havent listened to n64... or his raider klan tapes... also wild how a hardcore south florida rapper ended up with such a nerdy fanbase LMFAO
As a more of a metal/rock fan there always seems to be a hip hop album I listen to more than any metal album in recent years. I'm glad guys like Denzel, Danny Brown, RTJ, J Cole, and Kendrick are making great hip hop because I'm really not a fan of the majority of the more mainstream stuff.
theres a difference between mainstream music and popular music, i think. cole and kendrick are popular. people who dont know jack shit about rap know them. theres also mainstream rap, thats kinda the stuff that everyone who likes rap knows - not likes, but knows. and then theres underground stuff that only parts of the rap listeners know. and everything that you split up into more subgroups and details is kinda unnecessary bullshit.
