ArtistRack reviews ‘Can I Ball’ by J.Roots
J Roots’ undeniable fashionable swag packs a forceful maximization of rap sequences extracted from the limitless vernacular of assorted lyricism into the existential melodic nature of vocal artistry on his latest album “Can I Ball”.
The illustrative qualities of this music embodies a serene ideological stance of trap music representation at its most meaningful form. This progressive concept of sound mystifies the hip hop attitude through an incomprehensible style of music that is both understated and ingenious. “Can I Ball” is unorthodox in a way that challenges the oncoming millennial rappers pipe dream torching this to its own advantage of self-proclaimed finesse. The instrumental was suitably harmonious with the spiritual melodic singing that holds a tranquil and equidistant manner to the overall representation of the composition.
The catchy repetition of the beat holds a concrete foundation manoeuvring the artist to express freely without any limitations. J Roots’ lyrical dexterity holds a metaphorical and infectious sound that is both relatable and intriguing to the listening audience. This is simply a teaser of the full fledged album hinting at the contextual strengths that makes J Roots a pound-for-pound contender in the hip hop genre on “Can I Ball”.
