    Cilvia Demo Review

    OVERALL SCORE: 7/10

    FAVORITE TRACKS: Webbie Flow, Cilvia Demo, Ronnie Drake, Sililoquy, Shot You Down

    LEAST FAVORITE TRACK: Tranquility, West Savannah (I wanted to like it I dunno, find it kinda boring)

    NOTES:
    Isaiahs flow is great

    The songs I like I really like, the songs I don't I really don't like them.

    Production is nice, I like a lot of the beats

    The Beat on Sililoquy is hard as f---

    Wish Kendrick would have been on Shot You Down

    Overall I really like a good amount of this album, added a bunch of it to my big playlist. Will be checking out his other albums

    d---, Cilvia Demo by Isaiah Rashad is a great album. There’s really no skips for me. Isaiah does a great job of balancing multisyllabic rhyming, singing, and storytelling along with these chill, atmospheric beats. I could even see myself making music like this.

    I love all the songs, but that 3 song stretch from R.I.P. Kevin Miller to West Savannah is by far the best part of the album to me. Heavenly Father and Brad Jordan are also standouts. Overall West Savannah is the best song on the album though, I can see myself going on many car rides with the windows down to that song.

    Despite the smoothness of this album, Isaiah touches on some topics that I appreciate and some of which I relate to. The line on West Savannah “at least we fell in love with something greater than debating suicide” is a line I definitely needed to hear right now. It perfectly fits my situation.

    Not only does Isaiah touch on relationships and depression/suicide, but he also speaks on how that comes from the experience of being a black man. There are many great lyrics about the black struggle on this album, particularly with police, daddy issues, etc. That whole second verse of Ronnie Drake is amazing and really sums it up especially with the first line “hope they don’t k--- you cause you black today”.

    I pretty much have no issues with this album. I guess my only nitpicks are that I’m not the biggest fan of the beat on Webbie Flow although that’s still a good song. Shot You Down had a dope beat and dope verses from everyone but at the same time I felt it kinda dragged and went on too long.

    SCORE: 9/10

    Okay just finished listening!

    Standouts: Cilvia Demo, Soliloquy, Ronnie Drake, West Savannah, Menthol, Modest
    Skips: none really
    Score: 8/10
    Final Thoughts: love how the album opens.. 'my daddy taught me how to drink my pain away'. Then the second song he starts showing he can rap. There's a nice mix of solo songs where he's rapping and doing the hooks himself, and having features. SZA obviously kills it on both songs (though WS is something else) but I have to give credit to Jean Deaux for her feature on Menthol. Love her voice. Also the diversity is very good, think there's something on here for both fans of oldschool rap and more 'modern' stuff especially production wise. Soliloquy f---ing slapss!

    Great pick @jankland gonna find a download link for at least half of these to add 2 my playlist!

    Cilvia Demo Review
    Fav songs: RIP Kevin Miller, West Savannah, Ronnie Drake
    Overall i fw the project. He sounds like a southern kendrick lamar mixed with scarface. The production is cool at spots its a lil too slow for me personally. His rapping is really good and he had some good topics for example the father issue stuff.
    Final Score 8/10
