On Columbus, OH-born Styyle’s full-length All Love, he leads with an array of featured emcees and guest producers. An excellent wordsmith, he delivers fast flows and clever, thought-provoking lyrics, with catchy hooks and earworm choruses. There is also crude imagery and senseless sexualizations, although “Toxic” and “Walking on the Moon” exude darker themes and hard trap instrumentals to match. “Give You More” opens and closes abruptly, with chaotic overlays of auto-tuned hums and ad-libs. Sounding like all three Migos at once, the mumbled flow can be hard to decipher, especially as Styyle spits ahead and behind the beat. Though a bit distracting, it all comes together in a fresh, genuine way.
