G2 – Water
There are most certainly more signs of G2’s musical maturity on this album. I appreciate that he gifted us some of his own art for the cover. He’s got an ache in his soul somewhere. Something that's searching. In places you can hear it on this album. In others he toes the line between clichéd bravado and tongue-in-cheek criticisms of current hip hop. I dig his direction and am just glad to hear more music from him. Moments of true revelation mixed in with self-same braggadocio. But it’s a good piece of music nonetheless. In some spots downright gorgeous (“Interlude/Buena Vista,” “Drowning”).
