BossMan JD. Finally, a rapper from the Central Florida area creating a buzz without getting into legal trouble. It might be too soon to tell but as of currently, JD's consistency, his ability to epitomize the city that he was raised in, and his versatility are propelling him to regional recognition; and with connections to Kodak Black & NBA YoungBoy, it doesn't look like he's planning to disappear anytime soon.
The project opens up with a soulful, trap infused production on "Beat Breathe", introducing us to what will become the theme for "All Worth It 2.5". BossMan uses the intro to paint the picture of the grimey lifestyle he must live in order to get to where he want to go. He then uses "Third Eye" to completely introduce us to the streets; from the thrill of the chase for money to the inevitable darkside. An eerie mystique surrounds the vocals, yet it couldn't feel any livelier. Sounds like a full moon at midnight. The bounce carries on to "Rotation" & "Bitch Nigga" which is really just an album filler - an extension of "Third Eye" in a way, continuing to elaborate on the topics addressed about the steet world.
One topic not addressed yet is love. Is there love in the streets? Of course, but it comes in the form of a double-edge sword; on one side, you get to enjoy this indescribable feeling, yet you open yourself up to vulnerabilities that can come with deadly consequences. This is what BossMan JD sheds light on in "Love Don't Love Nobody", summarizing how you must tread this duality lightly.
JD re-introduces the bounce, in "Bag Talk", "Last Year", & "Holyfield". Not a whole lot of anything new in this section of the tape. Straight Florida trap. Some more story telling of the path the he's been on. I do smell animosity in "Holyfield". Half way through the tape, no features, brilliant storytelling; and unfortunately no hits.
During the next section of the tape, BossMan's ups the vibe as if he's walking us down the lane of his elevation sonically. You can hear the picture-painting of how JD became BossMan JD. The energy becomes wealthy. The game gets richer. The sound starts in "Pablo" and thrives in "Runnin' Game Like Madden". I can imagine driving foreign automobiles in downtown Orlando, Florida right now! The elevation continues into space on "Gold Yard". Welcome to the opiate high. Get your lean ready. BossMan JD finds a way to bend his flexing into motivation. "Gold Yard" slapping harder than a strippers arse getting penetrated from the back. From the "Sunshine State" to the taliban men of Pakistan, BossMan JD blowing them packs up. JD then jumps into the chaos of the hood calling out "Fake Trappers" & going to war in "Tell Me". He makes sure to decipher the difference between a rapper who raps about trap from a trapper who happen to know how to rap.
"All Worth It 2.5" concludes in a 'calm after the storm' fashion. JD keeps it simple & old-school. 15 songs consisting of marvelous picture-painting with a touch of rebelliousness, motivation, and money-chasing. Stay tune to see if the rapper can amass a greater following in a few months to be the 1st rapper to see success in the industry - who in the streets, reigning from Central Florida. If Kodak Black gets incarcerated, expect JD the thumb his way to the top of that lane.
