In terms of late ’90s/early ’00s rappers, Styles P will always be one of the most overlooked and underappreciated in my book. He’s been nothing less than an extremely consistent lyricist who at times even rivaled his more recognized partner, Jadakiss. G-Host caught me by surprise, I wasn’t expecting anything new from him but it turned out to be a pleasant surprise in more ways than one. He just low key may have just dropped the hardest album to come out this year. It’s full of all that gritty street sound we’ve come to love from him but with a modern feel that doesn’t feel forced or out of place. It’s a well balanced album that doesn’t overtly reach for trends nor does it rely on dated, tired sounds of his heyday either. It’s pretty much what I wanted but never got from a modern Jadakiss album. Lyrically he’s still an absolute monster and his subject matter reflects the growth he’s had as an artist and as a person. Hip-hop will always be a young man’s game but Styles P shows that he’s still got ‘it’ and then some with the most relevant album to come out of the D-Block click in years.
“Rather peace I don’t wanna go to war with ’em
If I had to swear to God I’d give it all to ’em
Know the feeling my nigga I’ve been poor with ’em
But they can’t walk on me I’m not a floor for ’em
Only God knows what He has in store for ’em
Lord doeth as He shall and that’s all for ’em”
