Based in Louisiana, Pride’s honesty and commitment rings through despite sound quality that too often leaves something to be desired, clouding his vision and message. A catchy, mournful beat propels “Hustle” in which the rapper laments his struggle to provide for his family despite the pressures of everyday street life. As much as we like the beat, it ultimately proves a bit monotonous. The artist questions God’s existence in “Faith” while an overbearing (and ultimately obnoxious) cathedral choir threatens to overcome him. The best song is “Found,” with its playful, pensive beat. But we suggest removing the trumpet from the opening so it pleasantly surprises us in the middle of the recording. Keep working.
