Shiesty Season | Pooh Shiesty
On his promising solo debut, the Memphis rapper punches well above his weight class and firmly positions himself as the top dog of the New 1017.
Shiesty Season sounds like the beginning of something, but Shiesty himself already sounds fully-formed — a brand-new rapper who knows exactly who he wants to be.
Overall I think this album will be a dish out some good tracks to vibe with and whatnot but I don’t think any of them really get the party jumping off which I think Shiesty has the potential to fulfill just not on here. There’s too much of the same old song and dance in terms of trap music here and mixing in with the crowd doesn’t necessarily help an up and coming artist. There’s a lot of room for improvement here and I do hope Shiesty does because as I said, I think with his lengthy verses and clear voice he has a lot of potential. I’d love to see him live up to that.
It’s projects like these that seriously have me mourning the dearth of high-impact albums to kick off the year 2021 – we’re feeling a bit of a COVID freeze here, as evidenced by Morgan Wallen’s album spending its fifth week on top of the albums chart. Hopefully things revert to normal sooner rather than later and we can stop getting excited about Gucci Mane clones.
