Guru said, “It’s mostly the voice,” and that’s definitely the case with Encore. Give him a decent beat and I’d listen to him read weather reports. Luckily, his rhymes are on point and his beats (provided here by next big thing Jake One) are bangers. On “Zigga Zigga,” Encore blesses the ’70s horn samples and crisp snares with his trademark vocal delivery, while the flip’s “Essentially Yours” sees him outline his master plan over a stuttering beat laced with keys.
