I’ve been looking forward to this project ever since I checked the video for “The Letter”, which featured this Maryland-based MC going in on head-in-the-clouds rappers. But he did it in a way that didn’t sound cheap or phony, just honest. As such, I had to post Phil Ade’s The Letterman as soon as it dropped. And with features from Wale, Raekwon, Skillz, Raheem DeVaughn, and just a few others, it’s more than worth your time just to hear how Ade stacks up against his more established cohorts. Spoiler alert: He definitely does, and then some.
