Amine's Sophomore Album Slays!
His 2018 follow up OnePointFive, a 13 track EP released only a month ago, is laced with more materialistic, ruggedness and less story driven followup to his last release. Amine’s OnePointFive is centered around his new found wealth as a result of his songs landing high up on the music charts.
However vain and braggadocios the lyrics seemingly come off, OnePointFive still contains the same level of honesty that the Good For You album conveyed.
You can discern that he still carries the same insecurities with him, but he doesn’t drag it out, he simply highlights it in a verse or two, and then the song moves on.
He glazes over his emotional and mental state a few times, in the tracks Dr. Whoever, Why, and Together. Amine also sheds light on his love life in a few tracks, and reveals what he likes most about a women in one song, the lyrics describe the girl in both a sexual and a romantic way.
The midway transition in the song “Ratchet Saturn Girl’ is simply beautiful. It flows from a trap beat, into a lovely melody at the end.
Amine also touches on his past love and heartache and refers to it as a time that he misses the most. It most definitely allows the listener to sympathize with his mistakes.
Although he flaunts his wealth on this album, which is cliche among rappers, it does seemingly contradict one of his pieces from Good For You. Specifically speaking, the track “Money” was a critical piece about, you guessed it… Money! And how it doesn’t guarantee making someone truly happy.
His perspective has flipped completely, which is tone this Album sets. Judging from the lyrics of his tracks, one can infer that the game has definitely changed Amine’s life as well as those around him. This release basically explores Amine’s reality now that he has entered a whole new tax bracket. Becoming a member of the rich and famous.
While extremely different from his last album, it is still a musically creative masterpiece in it’s own way. OnePointFive slays!
