KJ Of COA: Finally Off Papers
TKC quick and dirty review . . .
Like it or not, "Finally Off Papers" represents a musical progression for KJ and a clear sign of the young Kansas City rapper improving his skill. The tunes are darker, the rhythms and hooks are more complex and KJ is showing clear signs of progress as an MC. There are a few songs that might have needed a bit more polish but overall this is a solid effort and, better still, the frequency of the content produced by KJ reveals that he's a young artist interested in honing his hip-hop craft and competence.
Listen and decide for yourself while ignoring old white dudes with absolutely no musical sensibility beyond the glory days of Hee-Haw - Which was actually one of TKC's favorite shows because it was produced by a Hollywood mastermind.
But I digress . . .
The point here is that this EP from KJ demonstrates that he's doing his very best to make a musical achievement out of the shadow of his powerful and beloved father.
