On February 9, the Atlanta group Two-9 released their album, “FRVR.” Even though this group isn’t new to the music scene, this is the first time Two-9 has officially released an album. Much work went into this album, and you can tell that a lot of effort was put into it: Every song on the album features at least two artists. This lets listeners know that talent is everywhere in Atlanta.

I’ve never listened to Two-9 before this project, but after listening to the first track, “None of These,” I knew I was in for something great. The beat is mellow, yet strong at the same time. It reminds me of old school hip-hop with a splash of new age thrown in there. As the album goes on, it is consistent with that old and new feeling, but I will say that it progressively gets more intense with the production.

My favorite song on the album is “None of These”—hands down. I think the track’s placement is perfect because it snatched my attention. My second favorite song is “Family,” a song that has the potential to be a hit single. All in all, I have to say that I thoroughly enjoy this album.
