You might remember Allan Kingdom from his feature on All Day by Kanye West, or from his song Evergreens, which was decently popular on the internet. Well he waited long enough that any bump in listeners he potentially could have gained from being on a Kanye track had disappeared. This might have been beneficial for Kanye, since although he’s been associated with worse acts, this new album is pretty low on that list.
Kingdom seems to have Flanderized himself for this album, taking one aspect (the braggadocious nature) of Evergreens and the rest of the Future Memoirs tape and magnifying it, while letting other aspects (the clever lines and tongue-in-cheek delivery) that made it charming fall by the wayside.
