When ill Phil told me he was working on an album I knew from the jump that it was gonna be dope. I mean it has dope right there in the title after all. The colorful cover art is also very fitting, each track could easily be associated with a hue. The hard hitting “$teeZier” hails from the dark sound that we’ve come to know and love from Phil. The flow is inventive and the bars have more depth than can be seen on one listen. “So High” feat. C. White and LoudPackWeezy is much lighter fare, sounds like laying in a open field under a clear blue sky while the cool breeze swirls around you. Other standout tracks include “Ethi-DOPE-ia”, “Let Me Go” and “Real Hip Hop”. The time he put into this album definitely shows and it’s by far his most accessible work, a great place for new listeners to get an idea of his style.
