The more I listen to 'Grey Area' by Little Simz

#1

The more certain I am that it’s one of the greatest hip hop records of all time.

CHANGE MY MIND (dont)

Definitely one of the albums of this year so far, though I probably wouldn’t go as far as this.

I dunno I consider the likes of Pimp A Butterfly and Good Kid Mad City up there and I’m enjoying this everybit as much as those

It’s great. When it’s at its best (Sherbert Sunset, Offence, Selfish, Wounds) it is sublime, but I think it is let down by a few weaker tracks. Will almost certainly be in my top 10 of the year anyway.

My shit take is that this album and when she released Offence as a single reminds me of when Pusha T came out with Numbers on the Board. Just an intake of breathe that the production had really been taken up a notch to next level stuff. I know Pusha obviously had Clipse behind him and a previous solo track record but yeah it is a real marker for her anyway.

There are a couple of tracks that just aren’t generally my thing stylistically but I think at 10 tracks/35 mins it’s a case of me being able to appreciate those tracks as excellent examples of what they are doing. And after a few listens I actually really like it all and the overall flow of the album and if it didn’t have that variety it probably wouldn’t be as strong overall. So I dunno - not quite perfect but honestly it feels pretty close.
