Quavo - "Huncho" [ALBUM REVIEW] By @iHoodscholar

Quavo "Huncho" the solo project from Migos member Quavo was the album none of us needed. A lot of talk about Quavo being "The Beyonce of the Migos" over the years, but after listening to this disaster it's clear that's not the case. Some pretty good production featured on this album despite the lack of substance or even what I would consider just good mainstream rap songs. The album opens with a choir singing on "Biggest Alley Oop" which had me feeling optimistic, but Quavo starts rapping and instantly kills it for me. To be honest the best verses on this project come from the featured artist. 21 Savage delivers the first solid verse of the album on "Pass Out". Lil Baby changes the mood on "Lose It" with his delivery on an otherwise boring  track. "Swing" a pop track with an island vibe ft.  Normani & Davido is pretty solid and a change of pace. Kid Cudi does his usual emo harmonizing on "Lost" which is meant to be a heart felt song about not getting lost in the game. As far as Quavo's solo tracks "Huncho Dreams" which is rumored to be about Nicki Minaj is very entertaining, but that's about it. Everything else pretty much sounds monotonous with the same flows and topics. This album goes from mediocre to trash off of length alone. No one needs 19 tracks from Quavo, ever. This isn't a project that I would recommend to anyone or ever listen to again myself. I am still interested in hearing what Takeoff and Offset bring to the table though.
