We really hope this fad of 20+ songs dies immediately. Anyways, Oba Rowland has been quiet for a minute and we now know why: He’s been sitting on a ton of music.
The cover is nostalgic, to say the least, and Oba comes through with some great tracks to go along with it. Of course, he doesn’t go 26 for 26, but there are a slew of BANGERS here. “The Glory” and “I Will” he shows off his rapid flow. On “Up” him and Coach Joey trade bars over an old school beat, “Icewood Forever” is an ode to the Great Lake Ruler and don’t get us started on the Molly Brazy verse that lives on “Move Along.”
We hope to see a slew of visuals from this album because so far we only have seen “Goat Flow,” which dropped months ago.
Listen to Northland above.
