Most of K Camp’s biggest songs thus far have been triumphant, posi-vibed sing-raps (“Money Baby,” “Think About It,” much of the rest of In Due Time). Apparently he’s had a softer side this whole time: his latest mixtape is entirely love, lust and sex jams, following the blueprint of his 2011 tape K.I.S.S. He sounds right at home on for-the-ladies jams, perhaps because the production’s handled by Big Fruit, who made most of the aforementioned hits. But his idea of for-the-ladies jams is far more nuanced, supportive and feminist than your average. On “Lately,” he compliments his girl by telling her she’s got her shit together, rather than getting hung-up on physical appearance; he proves he has no hang-ups about physical appearance whatsover on “I Ain’t Gotta Type”; and on “Can’t Stop The Grind,” he seems more enthralled with a stripper’s hustle than with her body.
Highlights: “Blessing” (which originally appeared on In Due Time) is stripped down to only its bare essentials, resulting in something Miguel might make if he didn’t try so damn hard. “Piece of Love” is warm, rich and the most sex-positive, feminist statement since Rich Homie Quan’s “Can’t Judge Her” (She gon get her own, don’t need no savior/ If it’s working 9 to 5 or dancing on that pole, I won’t judge her, I wont judge her).
WTF: Your ass already nuts, cashew/ But I ain’t gonna lie, that’s what dope dick do. Infinite cringe.
