Due to the over-saturation of the rap genre, 2017’s It’s Nice Outside was unable to reach the ears of mainstream audiences. Anti-Lilly and producer Phoniks’ album flew under the radar as a result. But as you listen through the 17-track indie-masterpiece, you’ll find yourself wondering how the LP didn’t gain more traction.

Anti-Lilly’s flow is quick, smart, but most importantly, genuine. The rap genre has been defined by wealth, grudges and everything in between.

It’s Nice Outside is a breath of fresh air that challenges the standards.

The album grabs your attention right away with its self-titled opener and continues to create a modern lo-fi spectacle. Seventeen songs may seem intimidating, but the collection never loses its pace. The hour of music becomes increasingly easy to get lost in.

It’s always tough to compare artists, but if you’re a fan of Anderson .Paak’s Malibu, then you’ll certainly enjoy this album. With rap constantly evolving, it’s a rare treat to get an album such as It’s Nice Outside.
