Chicago rapper Taurus "Polo G" Bartlett was in jail when his song
Finer Things (2018) went viral on the Internet.
He had already tempered the original "drill" style of his raps and
his debut album Die a Legend (Columbia, 2019) made it even more
accessible with quasi-ballads such as Pop Out. The streamlined production
helped his articulate, cold, carefully composed stories, a
documentary, hagiographic rendition of life in the trenches of the black ghetto,
delivered in a melancholy sing-rapping style, a cross between Drake
and a yodeling country singer. A King's Nightmare is more representative
than the hits. Alas,
substandard beats/production makes the album tedious over the long run.
This album represents the melodic side of trap,
only themetically related to the trap of Chief Keef,
a step of emo-rap towards the world of rock singer-songwriters.
