Angel Dust – [Lil Xelly]

If you’ve paid attention to any of my articles over the past two years, Lil Xelly should be bumping on your speakers more often than not. He has been one of my favorite underground legends for quite a handful of years and considering the influx of music he has put out into the universe, there is literally no chance for any songs to get stale because there are just so many gems throughout his extensive discography.

Whether you’re a fan of his sound or just appreciate his workhorse mentality, there is literally no way you can hate on the Maryland native, and if you do, it’s probably just because you don’t appreciate hard work or a hustler mentality like the one Xelly has. While it can be hard to decide where to start listening with his catalog of music, he has been hyping up his latest project Angel Dust for quite some time now, and even though I know I’m late, I simply couldn’t miss out on the fun for any longer, and I’m glad I finally got a chance to actually sit down and divulge my full attention into this incredible tape.

With 16 songs that last just short of 28 minutes long, this is quite the lengthy project that is full of bangers that you can’t miss out on for another second. If I got into specifics, I’d end up writing a novel, but this project shows so many different sides of Xelly, some of which are calm, cool, and collected while others are energetic, animated, off the wall, and insanely captivating. There doesn’t seem to be a single song where his personality doesn’t shine, and the fact that he takes on this entire mixtape without any other features means that he not only carries the entirety of the project on his shoulders, but he doesn’t have anyone else to distract you or take away from all of the talents that he brings to the table.

Although there isn’t a song on here that I don’t wholeheartedly enjoy, some of my personal favorites ended up being “1-800 FCKYOHOE”, “Iso”, “öx”, and the final track “Confused”. I seriously could go on for days if I truly explained my admiration for every song on this project, but I feel that it’s better for you to just listen in for yourself and see just how amazing it is first-hand, so don’t wait another minute and go and give Angel Dust a listen immediately.
