This past Friday, Blueface gifted fans with the release of his debut album, “Find the Beat.” Nearly 2 years removed since signing his record deal with Cash Money West, Blueface’s first full length LP is able to be enjoyed by the followers, and haters, of the Los Angeles Rapper.
The 16-track project includes features from some of hip-hop’s hottest rappers such as Gunna, Lil Baby, YBN Nahmir, and DaBaby. “Find the Beat” was first announced via Twitter on October of 2019, with Blueface declaring it “Album of the Year.” The tweet led many to be it would release that same year but after following some delays, the album is here.
With the final cut offering an additional 4 tracks than first announced, Blueface surely makes up for the time fans waited to get the album. The album title pokes fun at the heavy criticisms Blueface first endeavored when he first arrived on the scene. In typical rebel fashion, Blueface ignores the critics and continues the use of his popular delayed flow throughout the album. However, on songs like “Dirty” we see Blueface experimenting with more trap influenced sounds. “Period” and “In the Zone are other standout tracks finding Blueface showcasing his vocal ranges.
Witty punch lines that may go over people’s heads, comical claims, deterred flows and grand piano melodies layered over heavy hitting 808’s have become BlueFace’s staple sound. On his debut project Blueface is able “Find the Beat” while keeping true to himself. Although he occasionally steps outside of his comfort zone, Blueface’s debut album is precisely what you expect from the charismatic crip.
