YNW Melly - We All Shine

Overview
YNW Melly is a rapper-singer from Gifford, Florida. He isn't really a rapper or singer, but what's interesting is this album straddles that fence 50-50. "We All Shine" is his debut and it's a decent effort. His vocals are consistent but not impressively so. However, his melodies are memorable and work well. All his songs seem polished enough for radio, but they would blend in aside from his hype as an artist.
Defining Track
Mixed personalities is a collaboration with the hip hop heavy-weight, Kanye West. It's very good, but he doesn't out-sing ye. Kanye is definitely the force behind it. The song is about his on and off relationship with an inconsistent girl.
Final Thoughts
YNW Melly stands out from music at it's simplicity. It isn't overly nerdy or abstract. It's just the hood experience given in a colorful way.
