Fashawn - Higher Learning 2 (Hosted by DJ ill Will & DJ Rockstar) - Mixtape Review

Fashawn - Higher Learning 2 (Hosted by DJ ill Will & DJ Rockstar)

Anything by DJ ill Will and Dj Rockstar is going to be much anticipated. Mixtape cover was already winning points as well with Bart Simpson all up in the mix I was anxious to hear this one.. At first glance there is nice play list totaling 22 songs. As usual these DJ's make sure the production is silky and the Fashawn - Higher Learning 2 (Hosted by DJ ill Will & DJ Rockstar) mixtape delivers in studio quality. There are not many names on this album with the best being productions from J. Cole (Common & John Legend also appear briefly and weakly). This mixtape could lose the skits an interludes and cut a few of the lower quality songs out. The 3 songs I liked the most were:

Fashawn - Papers (Remix)


Fashawn - Eastside Party (Prod by Hecktik)


Fashawn - Higher (Remix)

For sure a few of these jams get more spins.

Sound Production/Beats/Music Quality = 4/5

Flows/Song Concepts/Lyrics = 3.5/5

Listening Value/Download Worth/Playability = 4/5

As always everyone’s taste in music is different and my thoughts are not necessarily a result of anything meaningful. Read at your own risk :)
