Griselda's youngest gunner, Elcamino, has been laying waste to the game lately! With three projects in 2019, the Buffalo lyricist was on fire last year, despite being under
the watchful eye of the law for most of it (he was actively on house arrest). He is going even harder and in 2020 with the sequel to his classic debut, Elcamino 2. This
effort features production from DJ Green Lantern, Camoflauge Monk, DirtyDiggs, JR Swiftz, and guests spots from Benny The Butcher, 38 Spesh, and Rick Hyde.
According to Hip Hop authority, HipHopDX.com: A lot has changed since his debut, ElCamino, which featured Westside Gunn, Conway The Machine and most impressively, a posthumous verse from Prodigy. He sounds refined, like an elder statesmen dropping an overabundance of gems worth multiple spins. The guests all connect
— especially 38 Spesh, who shines on “Stove Tops” — yet Mino never gets overshadowed. Sitting at seven songs (significant if you consider this is the seventh project),
Elcamino 2 has an incredible amount of depth, traversing themes of perseverance, juxtaposed against the isolating realities of his legal situation.
“Nothing came overnight … my future wasn’t always bright, but even when it was dark I still see the light,” he raps on the opener “What Would You Do.” Over the soulful
DJ Green Lantern produced instrumental, he laments on his come up on the streets of Buffalo, while illustrating this driving light that seemed to guide him towards his
bigger vision.
This element of making it out of the trap and onto the stage — in a position to live a life only dreamed — weaves itself into the grand tapestry of this project. The celebratory high comes from “Shrimp at Phillipes” featuring Benny The Butcher. But even as the duo recognize how far they’ve come, ain’t nothing sweet.
As has become his most alluring asset, he manages to cover his retrospection with a veil of rawness; the sense of authenticity is really strong with Mino, especially if
you consider the angle he uses to approach his music. Nothing is glorified or gratuitous, and there seems to be a balance. On this project, the balance comes in the form
of its anchor, “I Don’t Understand.”
The album is laced with gorgeous production; at times feeding the soul, while at times offering an unsettling, dark vibe — like JR Swiftz’s keys on “Eat” or Chris Ruben’s
eerie “Cocaine Dreams” that transitions from heavy-handed (almost horror movie like) piano chorus to these lush, airy strings.
Elcamino 2 is an amazing follow-up, and offers listeners a look at the rollercoaster of thoughts and emotions felt by a dealer going straight in a world where they didn’t
want him to win.
