Georgia-born Henry Reed records as Two Head, a clearly skilled lyricist and storyteller with largely uplifting themes, refreshing to hear in otherwise standard Southern-trap hip-hop. On single “Lead You to Water,” Two Head recites the adage: (“I could lead you to water but can’t make you drink it”) in syncopated triplets, a standard Atlanta-style flow. The content is a commentary on money and image and the evils of screentime, and features the repurposed Medieval flute in the well-mixed instrumental. “Express” and “Go to Work” are autobiographical and reveal the emcee’s determination and charisma, over intricate exotic beats, again with noteworthy production value in overdubbed vocals, ad-libs and samples.
