    Contrarily to what the title of this record suggests, my girl has been trying to put me on to Peggy for a while now. She's always saying things like "Please let me peg you" and "One of these nights I'm going to be pegging you, you know". This review finally convinced me to let her do it tonight. Thanks Antonio!

      @Baby I’ve met women who listen to Peggy and Death Grips. They’re usually in the metal/hardcore scene, tend to be weird, and have bad hygiene. Might catch them picking their nose in public or on a dating app photo. More than one woman locally has been this way.

    JPEGMAFIA's production is so satisfyingly unhinged while Danny Brown shines because he can truly rap on anything and make it sound good. Legendary combo.

  • Come Fast To Get Into My Body
    Come Fast To Get Into My Body 2 months ago +2002

    Love this record so much. Lean Beef Patty had me worried about the album sounding like a Peggy album with slight Danny features, but the title track and the rest of the album have so much great synergy between the two with some of the craziest instrumentals I’ve heard from Peggy. It’s so good the only issue I have is that I need more

    This was my introduction to both of them, I was honestly skeptical about this album cause I’m mixed on hip hop as a genre but this was the best album I’ve listened to all year, I’m so happy I got out of my comfort zone and gave it a listen. ^^

  • Andrew Snook
    Andrew Snook 2 months ago +25

    Peggy is a damn wizard with these samples. The title track really stood out to me, and I learned it's mostly sampled from Dirty Beaches "Untitled" Take Away Show. The clapping, the sax, "WORK THAT SHIT," it was really fun to see

    Album absolutely slaps. I've had the beats from multiple of the songs stuck in my head since listening. It's frantic, energetic, and incredible.

  • Just Colin in
    Just Colin in 28 days ago +4

    Light 9 is very fair. Anything below this would be criminal.
    When I listened to it, hearing Danny's verses always seemed like an appetizer. Stretching your out your ears with his high mid delivery, and then transitioning to the more more chill, but still unhinged Jpegmafia.
    I'm convinced that "woooaaaaaaooww" sound on Steppa Pig is from Terraria
    Favorites: LBP, Garbage, Tester, KHK, GLY, and Jack Harlow Combo Meal. He did justice especially to Garbage pale kids. That beat went hard.

  • da835t

    I loved orange juice jones. Though its one of the calmer tracks production wise, its extremely flow heavy from both parties and is probably my fav delivery wise. I appreciate how comfortable they sound compared to the other tracks.

    • ThatGuyAnderson
      ThatGuyAnderson 10 days ago +1

      Definitely the most "rapping over a beat" type track on the album in a good way. Nothing too crazy going on with it, kind of like a palate cleanser after the first half, just before the insanity that is Kingdom Hearts Key.

  • thatsnotnormalman
    thatsnotnormalman Month ago +1

    At a certain point I also would’ve give it a 9. But hearing it a lot more on repeat changed it to a 10. I think you should do a redux for this one cause it deserves a mf 10 imo

    PERSONA 2 months ago +723

    the samples choices and production are out of the world on this one , definitely deserved a 9/10 , the mix grew on me after few listens

    • ALL- CAPS
      ALL- CAPS 2 months ago +16

      THE MIX ISNT EVEN BAD. Its such waffle from all the "I'm cool I don't like Peggy or Danny Brown bcos im not 10 y/o" muppets who think that the apparent mixing issues are an excuse to discount all the incredible elements of the album. Especially on the Clip-Share versions the mixing is perfect.

  • Rob

    The 404 has made a bit of a comeback lately w producers. It’s mad fun to use cuz it’s a sampler that’s mad Easy to sequence and get super quick results compared to a computer dAw and you can do some badass fx and sorta play it live in real time or record some of the tweaks. It’s an awesome tool, I like it better than an MPC for getting shit done quickly. But it’s def limited compared to like Ableton Live or whatever. Idk! Try it if u make beats! Not too much $$$

    I love your honest reviews, it's put me onto a lot of songs and artists that I wouldn't have checked out on my own, and would love it if you could order your favourite songs to your least favourite on the albums your review, if not that's fine, I can't wait to see what you review next

  • Fear & Loathing in General

    Sitting in a restaurant for a work meeting and Peggy & Danny burst in the door whopping people assess and demanding the women to dance and I'm just supposed to sit here and act like an upstanding citizen. That's what this album felt like. I GODAMM love it. So happy.

    5:20 Just to let melon and anyone else know, the aesthetic of Burfict! is very much "NFL Football". Vontaze Burfict is a very controversial, but undoubtedly talented and rough af NFL linebacker. Those "insane horn samples" are very reminiscent of the NFL themes on ESPN and Fox Sports, but it especially sounds like NBC's theme for Sunday Night Football, music that any NFL fan will be very familiar with.

    First off: This album is so fucking 🔥. It's a perfect synthesis of both of the guys' talents, so weird, but so full of amazing bangers. I was never THAT big a JPEG fan, but this album may have converted me.
    Also, on the point about the "underground and the mainstream collapsing on top of each other", I don't think it's to the extent where underground artists are as big as mainstream ones, but underground artists, trends, and styles EVENTUALLY bleed into the mainstream, but only aspects of them are actually accepted.

    In my opinion peggy is one of the best producers out there rn, his beats are so unique, and his specific sample choices is so charming to see, he fucking sampled a random ass chinese commercial😂😂

    Light 9 is pretty much a solid 9 which is pretty much a strong 9 which is pretty much a light 10. Congrats Peggy X Danny on the first 10/10 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

    I'm honestly shocked to hear you say that the closer is a difficult listen
    to me that track has massive pop appeal and if I had to pick a single track to show a friend who wasn't into Peggy and Danny that would be the one
    it's the kind of banger that I think anyone could get down with

    I was wondering when Needledrop is going to review this album.
    It’s easily one of my favorite albums of the year thus far. It’s the type of album that you can play on a loop.
    My only issue with the album is the mastering on some of the tracks. It’s hard to hear what’s being rapped over the beats.

    I'm liking the album more after every listen, but my only issue is that they needed to make the vocals a tinge higher cause it's legitimately hard to hear what they're saying at points
