Iman S.

Iman S. is back with Park Hill Logo 2, an ode to the streets that made him and cultivated his swagger. A long but listenable outing at twenty tracks, the album is drenched in "fly boy" lyrics and "you can't fuck with me" attitude. On "Taking Over," Iman shines with his most convincing "get with it or get lost" sentiments. His voice is deep, his verses are almost all punchlines, and the beats will knock through just about any trunk. On "No One," a mostly dance-driven track, Iman's rough rap provides a deep but intriguing contrast. The MC is best on "Goin to Mars," where he raps with his most commanding flow, while the Julox-assisted "Home Invasion" is about as street and gangster as you can get. Iman represents his 'hood with authority and unyielding loyalty. Park Hill, stand up.
