PREPSZN Entertainment – Forever High School
“Forever High School” shows off PREPSZN’s impressive flow and impeccable sampling. Rhythms opt for a laid back summery groove. Throughout “Forever High School” PREPSZN explore the nuances of relationship dynamics. Effortless in terms of its sweet welcoming style the layers of sound come together to create a nostalgic vibe with the plethora of genres referenced and the articulate lyricism. A careful narrative ties the many pieces together as the entire album feels naturalistic in tone.
After the casual sound of the opener “Rest in Peace Uncle Lou (Intro)” things begin in earnest with the darkness of “Shine”. Nimble percussion paired alongside heavy bass makes the song rather luxurious in nature. Showcasing their playful nature is the giddy work of “April Showers”. With an elastic bass, the song is one of the album’s highlights. Stripped down to the absolute essentials is the raw sound of “Can’t Touch Us”. “Candy Man” once again taps into PREPSZN’s Entertainment’s attention to detail and sense of humor. Tapping into grandeur is the sweeping work of “Need This Now” where the clever detailed storytelling guides the song forward. A ramshackle rhythm helps to anchor the expressive stylistic flourishes. As the song grows ever larger it becomes all-encompassing. Ending the album on a high note is the sly funk of “Itz Eazy 4 Me”. Samples are woven within the song’s DNA giving it a triumphant feel.
Infinitely catchy and uniquely compelling PREPSZN Entertainment’s “Forever High School” is a pure joy.
