Album Review: Will Sully Slays In ‘Base Is Too Damn High’ Album

Critically acclaimed producer/Hip Hop artist Will Sully returns with a brand-new album titled ‘Base Is Too Damn High.” The 12-track project features a line-up of powerhouses including Blaq Poet, Pat The Villain, Ali Vegas, Maine The Medicine, and Leadgeon. Just as the title suggests, Sully offers intense bass arrangements, custom for each track to ensure heavy impact. From fix-your-face hitting bass to vintage 70’s bass, Sully embodies his craft and invites listeners into an eargasmic journey.

The album kicks off with a comedic skit ‘Where The F Is The Base.’ Channel 5 arrives at a protest where Junebug is jonesing for “base.” He’s the voice for a community who can’t breathe without the insatiable taste of Sully base.

‘Hieroglyphics’ hits hard with the perfect blend of horns and gritty undertones. This record reassures listeners that Sully is back in his zone (as if he ever left). He will keep the fight going with unstoppable doses of signature bass. ‘City Of Mine’ exudes a soulful flow with 70’s momentum and offers a tale about a city brimming with rolling wheels, flowing cash, turntables and new kicks, hoodies and poker faces…a city where living legends are birthed.

The expression you make when Deebo struck in Friday, is the same expression listeners will display from the chilling melodies and basslines that steer ‘The Corn Field.’ The record stimulates with slick bars and punchlines. Sully is coming out of the cornfield like a tidal wave…pen alive. One thing is certain the competition will feel uncomfortable and intimidated, tenfold. Scarface meets Belly vibes hit in ‘The Ballad of Tony Mangioni.’ Theatrical arrangements encompass explicit storytelling about rules and regulations of being a gangster from swimming with fishes to concrete sole shoes.

An electric Hip Hop nuptial heightens the bold proclamation in ’88 Tec.’ It defines certain moves in the streets and how they’re executed without any cheat codes with energy that can’t’ be burned off. ‘Guns At You’ serves as a lyrical tale where OG’s take the young G’s under their wing and demonstrate how to respond to the root of all evil, and how at sometimes that resorts to bringing out heavy metal. Smooth keys intro ‘Love And Car Bombs’ with straight bars and head-nodding bass and drums to follow. Although the backdrop flows smoothly, the premise, not so much. It’s a volatile love story left for listeners to depict what love represents.

‘Impossible’ comes with vintage cadences, without sounding dated driven by striking melodies. The record is the epitome of who Sully is and what he stands for…Nothing is impossible with Sully on the track. ‘B Reel’ piggybacks with a trio of emcees acting as lyrical mobsters running circles around mediocre rappers.

Profound bass and melodies shatter throughout ‘Unholy’ while raw lyricism capture king of the jungle status that gives off slight Lucifer energy. The albums’ finale ‘Lightsaber’ shows off Sullys’ 24/7, 365 undefeated core. Confident bars leave a lasting impression and if you didn’t know who Will Sully was before, in about two minutes you will.
