After months of speculation and teasing the Harlem emcee has finally dropped his latest Mixtape “Paranoia 2” aka P2 January 16th, 2018. P2 is the follow up to Paranoia: True Story which chronicled the rappers rise to fame and will serve as the precusor to his major label debut with Mass Appeal and Def Jam. The project received features from Tory Lanez, T.I, Lloyd Banks Marsha Ambrosius and more giving us a multitude waves to ride.
The 15 track project produced by Buda and Grandz, !llmimd, Joe Joe Beats, Reazy Renegade, MP Williams, V Don, Humbeats, Rico Suave and more is lyrically and instrumentally sound. East on his no holds bar as usual, penetrates with raw lyrics burrowed in hard hitting NY centric beats. Over all a solid project nonetheless no one track stands out, but some you might have on repeat (I did) are Corey, Annoying, Whatmademe, Violent, Maintain, Never Been. Each track has it own mind like when East breaks down the many different artists who have influenced and inspired him to make music on the introspective, “What Made Me,” produced Citoonthebeat and his long-time producers Buda & Grandz. and “Talk to Big” a letter he wrote to the late Notorious B.I.G.
