uthor Reacts to Upchurch “No Effort Remix” (Official Video)

Today’s video was recommended by my subscriber John Green. Thank you so much for the recommendation and the support I really appreciate it! 

I was recommended by one of my subscribers to react to Upchurch’s No Effort remix.

I only knew Upchurch from his small interaction with Scru Face. I can see with his 1.5 million subscribers he is clearly doing something right.

Unfortunately, I am not his ideal audience. This song didn’t resonate with me. I thought he had some strong elements to his writing, particularly his use of imagery. The images he was able to conjure when he focused on verbal pictures were vivid but his flow and rhyme schemes were not able to keep me engaged with the song.

The video itself was very high quality. Like I said before I can see why he’s successful but he did not resonate with me.

I Would give this a 4/10

Author Reacts to Scru Face Jean- Slime Shady (Official Video) Lord Jamar Response

I first started watching Scru Face during his Upchurch beef. The first video I watched was Sunday School

If you can’t tell, today I’m taking a look at Scru’s recent release Slime Shady. I was told it was a diss, which made me excited to react to it. It’s Always fun to introduce a little volatility to the rap market. I can say, I knew I was going to like it, I wasn’t expecting to love it but Scru’s mannerisms, flow, punchlines and surprisingly his singing voice all won me over.

I give it a solid 8/10 and I’m excited to take a look at his new project with Crypt.

Author Reacts to Joyner Lucas ft. Logic – ISIS (ADHD)

Okay so here I am, a kinda shitty author talking shit about people far more successful than me. Only half kidding. Truth is I am ambivalent about this song.

Final rating is 5/10 or 2.5/5 depending on your star preference. This will be what my channel mostly is moving forward.

Weekly, and hopefully semi-weekly reaction videos to hip hop music/music videos. If you have any artists you would like me to check out please comment them below or message me on social.

Review Looking For Alaska

Looking for AlaskaLooking for Alaska by John Green

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I know I liked it. I know there were parts I liked a lot and parts I wasn’t too sure about. I know there were some subplots, specifically with the weekday warriors that felt shallow or felt more in place for a quick explanation than an actual deeper exploration and some of those resolutions were rushed, but all in all this was a good coming of age story.

A good journey of self-discovery with a religion teacher offering tidbits of philosophy for the readers to digest and juxtapose with Miles, Chip, Takumi, Alaska, and Lara.

I liked it. Okay. I liked it.

The characters had quirks. The characters had flaws. The one on one scenes were genuine and if they weren’t advancing the plot they were introducing us to deeper layers of the characters.

I liked it. Okay. I liked it.
