Brent Faiyaz – WASTELAND (album review)

Brent Faiyaz – WASTELAND (album review)

Brent Faiyaz does things his own way in “WASTELAND”.



Honorable mention. ROLLING STONE

Brent Faiyaz should definitely sing “ROLLING STONE” at his AAA meetings.

In “ROLLING STONE”, Brent Faiyaz admits that he is a misguided and arrogant asshole. What’s fascinating is that he switches between someone who sounds like he wants to change and someone who wants a few more swallows with an asshole.

5. ADDICTION

I’m selfish, I want Brent Faiyaz to continue to indulge in the demonic things that allow him to make the kind of bomb-ass music he makes today.

“ADDICTIONS” is one of the few tracks on this album that actually sounds normal. In the song, Brent Faiyaz and Tre ‘Amani sing and rap about being individuals who do not seem to shake off their scary habits. From the Kanye-Esque production to Tres hella DC-flavored verse, this song just felt so related, to me (And I just depend on the search part of IG).

4. COLLECTION OF TIME

I decided to add “WASTING TIME” to my top 5 list to pay tribute to the greatest musical brains of all time: The Neptunes. I also wanted to pay tribute to the unhappy / uncooked version of Drake that we get in the song.

I do not love “COLLECTING TIME”. If you ask me, the song sounds like a generic Pharrell track from that time. That said, I think Brent Faiyaz has a great vocal performance and smooth lyrics that will remind ordinary guys like me that we have no chance of singers when it comes to ordering the best ladies on the planet. As for Drake, he sets up a verse that perfectly mixes aggression with quirkiness, competitiveness and ingenuity. Drake saved the song for me.

3. GHETTO GATSBY

NInjas stepped on his ass during the production of this song.

If you read The Great Gatsby, you know that Jay Gatsby was this magnetic antihero who had an extremely selfish side. Brent Faiyaz gives me the same vibes as an artist, hence why “GHETTO GATSBY” perfectly describes who he is (or wants us to believe he is). In the song, Brent appears cold, narcissistic and boastful. What is interesting is that Alicia Keys appears as in the same way in the song. Her rap verse (Yes, she raps in the song) is colder than a hamburger delivered via uber eats.

2. PRAISE PRIZE

The other day I deliberately drowned in “PRICE OF FAME”. When I did, my love for the song increased significantly.

When you get past the twisted and chopped part of “PRICE OF FAME”, you enter the R&B heaven! (I think the twisted and chopped part does a good job of putting you in this lovely sloppy drunken mood). In heaven, Brent brings out his absolutely beautiful vocals (Sorry, boys, I could not think of another word to use) and the carefree lyrics that have practically built his foundation. Although “PRICE OF FAME” feels like a long-running Netflix teaser, it does its job of separating Brent from the rest.

1. DEAD MAN GOES

Is “DEAD MAN WALKING” the smoothest track ever? I think so.

Whether you are a Brent Faiyaz fan or not, you must appreciate the message behind “DEAD MAN WALKING”. In the song, Brent Faiyaz encourages us to live life comfortably on the edge. Despite being supported by very unorthodox production, DMV natives appear to be evenly chilled, unoccupied and subdued. More than likely, when you are comfortable in your own skin, that’s what you want to sound like.

(B)

If you want to fully understand the music of Brent Faiyaz, you have to take hard drugs. That said, before I hit play on this album, I made sure to sniff out some magic markers.

We can all agree that Future is one of the most toxic individuals on planet earth, right? I mean, anyone who can tell Steve Harvey, the host of Family Feud for God’s sake, that he does not want his daughter repeatedly in a song, is evil. Someone who may be as toxic as Future is Brent Faiyaz. I understand that, Brent has an absolutely fantastic voice, but so do the beautiful women on FOX News. Anyway, all the way WESTLAND, our antihero appears as a selfish asswipe who does not value love, money or new episodes of American Greed as much as the rest of us do. In other words, he sounds carefree from literally the moment you press play on the album until it’s done. But here’s the thing: I love it s ** t! When you combine Brent’s devilish lyrical content with his amazing voice and smooth production, you end up with a work that plays with your emotions in ways only the first girl who broke your heart can. Would I wish the album had a little more stability? Yes. But at the same time, instability can be Brent’s superpower.
