Love Sosa Album review
October 30, 2018
After his last release of Lil Boat 2 earlier this year, Lil Yachty is back with ‘Nuthin’ 2 Prove,’ his album which holds 15 songs. Yachty did something different this time around and made the first eight songs with his well known rap style, while the last 7 are slower and more meaningful, if that means anything from Lil Yachty… Yachty featured popular artist like Playboy Carti, Lil baby, Juice WRLD, and many more. Nuthin’ 2 Prove dropped just days before Yachty and Bhad Bhabie are set to go on tour starting on October 24th in Baltimore and ending on November 28th in Santa Cruz.
Yachty’s intention with this album was to show that “he been doin it” and to give him respect, hence the first track name ‘Gimmie My Respect.’ Yachty believes he has owned this style for a long time and no one can do it as well as him. Junior Cade Buscher agrees with Yachty and explains “I think Yachty definitely has a style of his own. He’s got this happy go lucky style about him that truly no other artist has. He manages it well too, he never lets anyone put him down. He carries this “i’m happy and i’m going to make whatever i want” mentality and i really respect that.” When asked what his feelings were on Nuthin’ 2 Prove, Cade has a different opinion, “with his album ‘Nuthin’ 2 prove’ and the first track being ‘Gimme my respect’ sheesh i don’t know about that one chief. In my opinion Yachty has lots to prove… like releasing an above mediocre album.”
Junior Charlie Steer expresses his feelings for Yachty saying “One night was a banger, I wasn’t a huge fan of Harley, and Nuthin’ 2 Prove was in the same boat.” Steer goes on to say “Its catchy and hype music, but there were a lot of mid tracks. It seems like Yachty has ten mid tracks for one good track. I think Yachty struggles with inconsistency in his music.”
Senior Gabe Gammel says “It felt like a pretty lazy album, like it was throw together very quickly, I would give it a 5 out of 10. Gammel did however like the features as he goes on to say “the Carti Verse was nice.” Gammel gives the low review because “Boat was lazy with the lyrics and its pretty flat, all of it sounds the same.”
It seems that there is a trend here with the album being just mediocre, and senior Nathan Morse couldn’t agree more. Morse explains “He’s a good rapper with talent and potential but I feel like he only has a few good songs.” Morse believes this album is no exception, and some songs on it we’re just not necessary. “One of the highlights of the album was the features, they helped make up for where Yachty was lacking.” Morse explained when asked about highlights off the album.
One thing that most people interviewed could agree on was that the beats were pretty good. This can be thanked to Earl The Pearll, Tay Keith, Digital NAS, and more who helped produce this album. However the conclusion is that this was just a decent album that had potential but Yachty did not put in the extra work.
