[REVIEWS] Jooba Loc: Only Way Out
With so much new music dropping these days, it’s a little difficult to find anything that stands out tremendously. No doubt, it’s a good thing that we’re seeing more music these days from our favorite artists, yet it’s a little unconventional in the fact that many artists are over-flooding the industry with so much and doing very little in the effort of marketing and promoting. I believe many will agree that the quality hasn’t necessarily been there either, which is what makes the new mixtape release from Jooba Loc so special.
Fronted by none other than Snoop Dogg, Jooba Loc has undeniable star power, and it’s evident in Only Way Out. As the flagship artist for Snoop’s Doggystyle Records, the bar has been set high for him to show and prove, and he’s doing just that with tunes like the infectious “Fallbacc”, “One Way Out”, and “It’s Bedtime”. The album flows quite well in general, making it much less like a mixtape, and more like a full-fledged album release.
Support is high for Jooba, with guest appearances from west coast luminaries like Daz Dillinger, Kokane, and Snoop himself.
As someone who likes to look at the overall picture, I’m eager to see how it all plays out in terms of full artist development. I think the possibilities are endless with his current situation. Snoop has a proven track record in regard to development, and Jooba seems to have the personality to take it next level.
