Mixtape Review: 88-Keys - Adam's Case Files

I reviewed the new 88-Keys mixtape for Read it here and leave your thoughts on the album in the comments.

I know Ivan placed Keys on his list of top 50 hip-hop producers at, and I'm certainly a fan of his production as well. Has anyone else listened to it?D

  1. Dope cd the samples are crazy this dude should blow.

  2. I feel the exact same way about it as you do. I think "cuddle Bums" Is a dope track, outside of that there are a few that are decent. I know he is a great producer, but great producers find ways to make the tracks fit the people they work for. It shows versatility, guess it just wasn't happening.

  5. Gav: He is a very good producer, but the emcee selection on the tape was poor.
    I like the guest list for the full length though.
    I was actually pleasantly surprised by Keys' rapping on the tape.
    Apparently he's going to emcee a few tracks on the Death of Adam.

  6. producer rappers just aint happening... but lately i've been proven wrong! I look forward to the actual release as well
