Juelz Santana, ‘God Will’n’ – Mixtape Review
It seems to be comeback season for many artists that were hot in the early 2000s, and Juelz Santana wants in. The Harlem rapper has been on the sidelines for a minute but he's getting the ball back into play dropping his new mixtape 'God Will'n.'
The project begins with a staple East Coast sound but seven tracks in, he adapts to trap house beats, minimal syllable-liners and simplistic rhymes. Of course, Molly is mentioned too.
Some of the usual suspects return to help out with features on this Dipset member's tape. On 'God Will'n,' Juelz is joined by Rick Ross, Meek Mill, Fabolous, Future, Yo Gotti and fellow New Yawkers Jadakiss and Lloyd Banks drop bars too -- along with many more.
On the Sha Money-produced 'Black Out' featuring Lil Wayne, Juelz raps, "Tell Mitt Romney to fall back, my President still black." Not only is he proud about the White House still being blacked out, he and Wayne are also really excited about blacking out in p-----.
He gets a little personal on 'My Will,' as he contemplates the future of his money and possessions if his life were suddenly ended in the streets.
On 'Clickin' with Yo Gotti, he also hints at going the extra mile for the ladies. "Like 2 Chainz, I kill weaves, but I send em back with their hair done," he spits.
The last mixtape Juelz released was 'The Takeover' in 2008, and it's been eight years since he dropped his sophomore studio album, 'What the Game's Been Missing!' If you're going to be missing for almost a decade, you have to come back with something worth talking about. He accomplishes that with this tape.
Juelz is currently working on his third studio album, 'Born to Lose, Built to Win,' to be released via Def Jam later this year.
