Mr. Envi’ goes for a flawless flow offering stories of a life lived to the fullest on “Tha 40oz (EP)”. The narrative he creates throughout the whole of the EP shows off a true compassion for others, the way to maintain relationships, tying the many pieces together in a fantastic fashion. Stylistically, while the pieces are firmly grounded in a southern hip-hop tradition, Mr. Envi’ incorporates soul, R&B, and little flourishes of electronica into the mix. By going for such a broad approach, the whole of the collection swirls about in a fluorescent haze, completely with gorgeous melodies and hard-hitting, heavy beats.
