Lud Foe's new album Guns Up Funds Up opens with the blistering "YNS" and it doesn't lose momentum for a single second of its 43 minutes.
The rapper introduces a bouncier version of the variant of drill from his native Chicago in such a way that even YBN Nahmir sounds like he's in his element.
Features are scant but effective. Foe has a keen sense of song structure and is more than capable of carrying a song solo so when a song does have a feature, it's thoughtfully curated.
Foe is an adept rapper and finds a way to make the different vibes work for him but he sounds best employing the menacingly calm and soft-spoken flow on songs like "Composure" with Durk.
That being said, the album is a lot more versatile than one would expect. There's bound to be something for everyone on here.
