Hip Hop, Song

New Music: Gilbere Forte > Train Lights

Song: Train Lights
Artist: Gilbere Forte
Album: Eyes of Veritas
Producer: Bink!
Label: The Smoking Section
Genre: Hip Hop
Notes: From 1st Mixtape
Source: Nah Right

Analysis: Somewhere halfway through ‘Train Lights’, Gilbere Forte transforms into a Drake clone (complete with a next-verse-signifying “UNH”). But looking past that, he’s lyrically sound, and for the first half of the track conveys enough of his own style to show a good amount of promise. Combine that with the tight production of Bink! and this one ain’t bad at all.
Concept: 3.5 • Melody: 4.5 • Lyrics: 3.5 • Chorus: 4.0 • X Factor: 3.5
Overall: 3.8 (76%)
