[1 Week Review] Jody Lo - DOPE!
North Carolina has been recently producing some of the greatest artists hiphop has scene in a while from the likes of J. Cole, DaBaby, Bali Baby, Stunna 4 Vegas & a lot more to name. But the underground scene in North Carolina is just as strong. Winston-Salem, NC artist Jody Lo proves it with a new album release; "DOPE!". Dope was a 15 track independent album laced with catchy beats, strong vibes and some extremely lyrical bars from Jody Lo with various underground artists making appearances. Track 2 begins with a mediocre hook but once the verse begins, Jody Lo quickly begins laying bars to make up for the typical hook and beat selection. Track 3; All about the Benjamin's is a stand out track by far on this album. Detroit native ChadRoto lays down a strong but simple hook while Jody Lo shoots bars on the verses over a trappy type beat creating a perfect chemistry. On Toxic Relationship the theme as self explanatory and something a lot of us can relate to as the first verse details traits of a toxic woman, the 2nd verse gives traits of a toxic man while the hook explains how they deal with one another, the song was awesome. Other notable tracks are; Break the bed, off the muscle, running man & Snakes.
After a whole week on the streets, "DOPE!" by Jody Lo seems to be a successful project. Gathering thousands of streams as well as hundreds of Albums sold in the first week, the album continues to spread and will probably be played for a long time.
