Mellowhype's latest project shows an enjoyable increase in technical skill since their last full-length affair--even if the end the result is sort of generic.
With Numbers, Mellowhype manages to churn out a few decent beats, but the lyrical content and originality are more lacking than ever. It seems making an interesting hip hop record is not in Mellowhype's career itinerary. Instead, portraying the forgettable fantasies of that "cool kid with a c average" is more important.
On the OF Tape Vol. 2, OFWGKTA delivers their same brand of antics. Some clumsy flows, OK production, lewd lyrics. Nothing all that new if you've heard much of what the group has released up until this point.
California hip hop collective Odd Future finishes off the year with a new release from the Internet. This ain't the same angle you'd expect from most OF albums, but it's not exactly restoring my faith in the outfit.
