Since his debut release last year, Headie has dropped the long-awaited mixtape ‘too loyal for my own good’. We continue to see Headie experimenting and being creative with his sound. This mixtape is different from previous ones as there are no features, giving us more time to connect with Headie as an artist.
Throughout this mixtape, we see a range of different songs from more jumpy tracks such as ‘nothing to me’ to more mellow, heartfelt tunes like ‘…for my own good’. We see Headie try something different with the song ‘cry’ sampling the Busta rhymes classic ‘put your hands where my eyes could see’. Headie’s wordplay complimented by the lively beat creates a great blend. Where drill may sometimes fall under an umbrella of predictability, Headie one continues to surprise listeners with different sounds.
We see Headie cut deep and talk about past betrayals and the pressures that come with fame. The constant theme of this sets the whole mood for the mixtape showing us a more personal side to Headie. Overall, ‘Too loyal for my own good’ was an experience!
