Too Much immediately hits listeners over their heads with a flow that builds upon the tradition of Schoolboy Q, Drake, and Kendrick Lamar. The backing beat rises and falls, smartly utilizing repetition to further highlight ND’s lyrical flow. There are a few distinct sections to Too Much; the hard-hitting beginning bounces over to a more laid-back interlude before resuming the intelligent, contemplative approach to lyricism. By weaving the distinct threads of 00s and 10s rap into a cohesive entity, Neko Deshawn is able to make something that is tremendously reverent of earlier eras while staying cutting-edge.
