2018 has been a great year for Chicago music, it seems as if the wave we once had back in 2012 is beginning to resurface. As the one of the lead journalist covering the movement, it’s only right to continue to highlight Chicago musicians. So the first to get a review is non-other than new G.O.O.D Music signee Valee.
Valee’s GOOD job, you found me EP, was executive produced by Kanye West. The 6 song project introduces 3 new tracks, with 3 already buzzing singles; the fan favorite “Shell” and “Miami” ft Pusha T. The project sound quality was A1, he had beats from Rio Mac, ChaseTheMoney, and Oh yea produced things himself. The “Shell record was produced is a Valee self-produced track. This project is a great introduction EP, for the world to get a sample of what Valee has to offer.
Sonically: 5– How this EP was mastered was great for the ears, the beat selections were perfect.
Lyrically: 3- His delivery is so different and weird, but yet good. With that said the bars on this EP wasn’t the best even Pusha T verse on Miami wasn’t that hard. His unique delivery helped his rating.
Artistry: 4- The creativity of Valee is undeniable, he has a unique malolactic sound. He is like Prince if he made Trap Music.
