VIMTV Album Review #393: MellowHype – BlackenedWhite
Verdict: Recommended if you like OFWGKTA.
Overview: For this 2011 re-release, MellowHype (Left Brain and Hodgy Beats of Odd Future) trim the fat and go for a very brief, straightforward hip-hop experience. Keeping true to the controversial lyrical themes and bedroom production style that made them underground sensations, this album is really no surprise. However, it is probably one of the group’s most accessible efforts, and shows a possible evolution in songwriting, album structure, and overall mindset.
