    There are ways to hear this album as both damning or redemptive, depending on the perspective. But it is never sanctimonious, and it is constantly breathtaking.

    Right from the outset, the album is filled with dense, complex vocal arrangements, with both MCs (as well as their guests) delivering dozens of vicious caricatures of fake rappers and "woke" folks. ... They complement each other well, and both drive the album's concept.

    Although Everything’s Fine is well-crafted from front to back, there are a few hiccups.

    For an album so complex--one that’s simultaneously funny and fearless--it has an uncanny way of simplifying things

    This is an album that takes familiar hip-hop starting points and denatures them, resulting in a compelling collage that feels structurally untethered to hip-hop then or now. The results alternate between tragic and comic, but the ambition is steadily high throughout.

    All in all, Everything’s Fine lays bold claim to being one of the most unique rap albums in recent memory. It cuts through the repetitive commercialism of the modern experience with dryly comedic lyrics over a vast collection of beats influenced by decades of hip-hop, r’n’b and jazz.

    It’s a sprawling and intentionally distancing record, but never less than fascinating.

    Following a string of interesting singles, this musical duo/life partners release what is likely going to be the strongest rap collaborationFollowing a string of interesting singles, this musical duo/life partners release what is likely going to be the strongest rap collaboration of the year. Confidence, comedy, and charisma seep from this album, covering a range of hot-button topics such as privilege, stereotypes, addiction, and activism. Attached to each song is a hefty layer of dry-humor that guides the album to whole new depths. Dig in and get to know this release, you won't be disappointed. Expand
