Let Me Live

La Swave, I took notice of you when ‘Initiation’ dropped, did my research and I’ve been waiting patiently for you to drop something heavy. ‘Let Me Live’ is safe; it’s a decent start for 2018. I just hope he has something more potent in his arsenal because he has the potential.

With songs such as “No Pressure” and “10pm in Loughton” showcasing his ability to story tell; candid conversations and snippets throughout the interlude; help introduce him but, it could go further. I really did enjoy the production of “10pm in Loughton”; I feel this track really did its job in introducing La Swave to new listeners as well as satisfying the fan base he’s cultivated.

This project covers all bases; there’s pretty much a song for everyone on there, the song that stood out for me on the project was “See Mi See Trouble” with the bar about the chin chin; I can dig it, funnily enough it was Tops Mafioso that said it. Honourable mentions; ‘My Codeine Joint’, depicts that the project is solid but its not as exciting as it could be. “My Hopeless Love Song” and “Ain’t My Bae” showcase his versatility from going sweet to savage and only having an interlude separate both tracks; that was smart. “Ain’t My Bae” references “Initiation” again, smart.
‘Cash Money 99’ is an ok track however; you can’t name something after Cash Money and not really give it all you’ve got. I was expecting a reference or even some kind of sample with an upbeat tempo. This would have been a perfect moment to use ‘back that azz up’ as a sample, make it a tune for the ladies and
create an epic visual; sadly the opportunity was missed. Nonetheless it’s a decent song.

Musically, the bar is set high for UK artists and aside from potential visuals aiding this project; I’m expecting a lot more heat from La Swave. This project is a solid 6/10, I feel La Swave has the ability to really make it in the industry but this project doesn’t depict his potential. In other words, nothing stands out, and tracks that could have gone further are feeling unfinished. I don’t want to use the word rushed to describe the project but the Before My Bad Decisions’ EP was effective and to start off the year with something solid and safe. I really do hope this year, ‘Let Me Live’ will just be a diving board for La Swave to really showcase is versatility, lyricism and flow diversity.

In conclusion, this project is consistent and has covered areas but not to La Swave’s potential. I am a fan so I do expect more and he delivered but not to his usual standard. This project didn’t
help him stand out but the way I see it, it can only get better from here. He is definitely one to watch, I just wanted this projected to coincide with his ability.
