Overall: Pretty Good
Strengths-Da’louza’s choice of a Dj for this project was a power move, With Dj Bed Tyme, giving the mix tape a more broader appeal, and really helps capture that east coast style that his music embodies. Unique track selection. WIith this project Da’Louza uses various tracks from Jay Z, Wale, Dolla, Kanye West, T.I., Drake, as well as a few originals. On Life’s an Illusion Da’louza talks about various issues, such as police brutality, black consciousness, Religion, and other social topics, and even a few joints for the women.
Weakness’s At first listen some of the rap melondies are over the edge. Lacks St.Louis sound (what ever that means) lol Extreme views on certain issues could turn certain audiences off.
