    Review: People’s Champ by Team Eastside Peezy #Detroit

    The commanding production of “Keep Winning” sets the tone for the rest of Peezy’s latest project People’s Champ. He’s in charge. You just live here. And it creates an impossibly high standard to follow after the strong intro goes off. Will the rest of the mixtape be this vivacious? Will we grow tired of the power he invests in the machismo of his rap delivery?

    Peezy straddles a fine line here – he raps as if he’s backed into a corner, trying desperately to convince rap fans that he’s a worthy presence in the Detroit music scene. He also stands tall, confident in his ability and acts as if he’s letting you know to back it up some. He’s both ready to prove himself and eager to let you know that he’s fine. This struggle pops up over the course of these 17 tracks as he paints a vivid picture of his current lifestyle and surroundings. He’s happy, he’s angry, and he’s determined.

    He paints pictures masterfully with a voice that sounds at home in one of the Howling envelopes from the Harry Potter franchise. On “Hard To Tell,” where the production is a departure from the heavy and distorted bass frequent on most of the other tracks on the project, Peezy flows masterfully on top of the quietly evolving and ever changing beat in the background. At a little over 3 and a half minutes, it’s a sure standout that could profit from being longer.

    Perhaps “dangerous” could be the term to describe the aesthetic created by Peezy over the course of the project – musical, but something to watch out for. “I might fuck your bitch raw like I don’t know better,” he says with reckless abandon.

    Another standout is “Wins and Losses” with Young Buck and LOM Rambo. Buck gives a scene stealing verse here, rapping “when the spot got hot we got another house/feds hopped on it so we took another route” showing he still has the ability to craft vivid imagery.

    By the end of the project, it’s clear that Peezy’s struggle is something that defines his career and has contributed to a solid album. Without any glaring missteps, this project will be sure to elevate Peezy’s status into a new circle

    Score: 8 out of 10
