Really really good debut I think. Feeling this more than Doris as it stands right now.

The opener here is just so good.

Obviously the dude is much more versatile than Rocky or anyone on ASAP for that matter.

Wish it didn't have the intro outro dialog for party purposes. Still goes hard

the only way this is better than doris is if you seriously listen to this kind of music not at all for innovations to language, poetry, etc, like something like that just wouldn't register as one of your interests

Haha

Obviously Earl is amazing. I like Doris quite a bit as a heady, Doom-esque lyricist and listening experience. But Trap Lord is that feel good music. It's not deep or introspective - which is exactly why I love it.

I have a record like Trap Lord for when I'm not listening to more nuanced, socially conscience rap. Just like Rocky, it's a banger, have fun record.

fair point. you can prefer one over the other for sure....from an objective stand point, i think its pretty easy to call doris "better"

Definitely. Didn't mean to say that in my initial comparison. Oops. Wasn't really comparing the two. They aren't really comparable.

But if we're judging Doris on its own, I'm kinda let down by it as it stands right now. The flows and wordplay are ridiculously great, but it feels more like a free form mix tape than an official major label debut. At least to me...we can discuss that in that review tho

You're paying too much attention to some kind of non-existent, established system of what releases "should" consist of. But if you think the lyrical gymnastics of "Doris" are worthy of only a throwaway datpiff page, then I don't know what to tell you dude. But if you don't mind the mindless clichés that have been getting way too much attention of late, the "Hangover 3"s of hip hop, then "Trap Lord" is the album for you.

What the literal fuck are you talking about?

Is this worth checking out if you dislike A$AP Rocky?
Yes completely different
