I’m not really familiar with Trouble outside of seeing his name popping up on a few songs here and there, and I’m guessing I’m in the majority with that sentiment which is why Mike WiLL Made-It’s name is boldly emblazoned right along his. Which is honestly a smart move, because if it wasn’t there I probably wouldn’t have given this a listen. Getting right to it, Mike WiLL Made-It was the real draw for this album and his production was pretty much the only thing that kept me pushing on through Edgewood. That’s not to say that I think Trouble is a particularly bad rapper. It’s just that I don’t think much of anything about Trouble in general. There’s a considerable lack of charisma or even energy with everything he does here that left me walking away from songs feeling largely indifferent. A problem that’s only compounded by the fact that everything he’s rapping about it already well worn territory. Edgewood is just your average neighborhood rapper with one of the best producers in the game. I came for the beats and stayed for the beats.
“Like a freak hoe, it’s just sum bout her make me go beast mode
I’ma knock down this bih like sum free throw
Got the look, got the swag, that the cheat code
Got the look, got the cash, on the G Code
‘Fore you open that door check the peephole”
