"Serious Hip Hop."

Lokye - Color Coated 2 (R.I. Review)

Lokye is a rapper from New York. "Color Coated 2" is a snapshot of his laid back, raw, city lifestyle. There are a lot of sung vocals, but the album is undeniably hip hop focused. Lokye's rap skills are good, but the strongest aspect of this album is the vibe. It's stoner-friendly in the production and lyracism, but it isn't lazily put together. Lokye has made a very high quality album to get high to. There isn't much depth, but to be fair the intended audience may not want or appreciate that. This stacks up to the artists in his lane, but his success may be based on how well he can stand out in the future. Gimmicky flashy rappers have had better luck in straight-forward hip hop success.

7.9/10
