LOOK UP in the sky! Issa a bird! Issa plane! Issa album by David Puffin'. With a 4.20 release date "Issa", (a 10-track EP by David Puffin') isn't about flashy click bait album titles but rather letting the music RUN IT UP. Known for his high energy and weed inspired lyrics David Puffin looking to make his music reach as many people as the plant he celebrates. So here it is 'Issa', the review;
The albums first track (OJ Da Juiceman) is named after the Atlanta rapper OJ Da Juiceman and pays homage to his popular track "Make the Trap Say Aye" (which features long time collaborator and fellow Atlien Gucci Mane). David Puffin' is able to put his own spin on the track by using a similar formula of trap lyrics while contributing a sound that is all his own. Listen to his remake of the chorus: "Whole brick, half-a-brick, quarter-brick, aye. 12 zips in a day Brady with the plays. 100 pils, 1,000 pills servin' major weight. David Puffin' if I ever serve you bring your skate."
The only featured artist on the album is 24k Astall who teamed up with David Puffin' on the track "Caillou" (Read the review here). Caillou has a been a well received single that has been in heavy rotations in many DJs sets and has become a nightclub favorite. So putting this track on the album was not only a good move but a good fit to the cohesiveness of the album.
David Puffin' has shown his commitment to pushing content for this album by already releasing 3 visuals for the album. These include the album's first single "OJ Da Juiceman", "Run It Up", and "Caillou" which all respectively bring a different dynamic to the feel of the album. "Run It Up" definitely being David Puffin's most braggadocios track which is highlighted in the video.
One look at the album's artwork and it becomes apparently clear that David Puffin' is not afraid to take chances. He brings this same type of boldness to the album with tracks such as "Abuser" where David Puffin' explains that he is not a user but an abuser. It's a smooth melodic track and a switch up from the high energy heard on the previous tracks. "How Ya Feel" is another track that David Puffin' seems to show a different side. The track is keeps inline with the last tracks slower feeling that should resignate with the ladies.
Throughout the album David Puffin' shows his versatility and lyrical skill. "OG Gas" in particular showcases David Puffin's wordplay and use of cadence as seen below:
Been that nigga since you had a beeper
There you have it. "Issa", a 10 track project from David Puffin' that fits well with its 4/20 release date. The album is David Puffin's celebration of weed, trap beats, and an overall good time.
