This star studded line up is only one part of this project. Nicholas Craven usually brings a lot of soulful beats into this underground space. But on this project, it seem he opened up a new file that hasn’t been heard by anyone before. This will be something that will be talked about on this album. Nicholas Craven’s versatility has been unlockedFalcon Outlaw’s wordplay and subject matter on this album is top tier and will leave the listeners wanting more. The growth that Falcon displays on this project is one of the biggest leaps in the underground that has been displayed by anyone. This album is an extension of West Detention being that EP was about his time in young offenders’ prison and this new album is about his time being locked up as an adult. The album goes through many changes throughout, but holds the listeners attention at each punchline.
