Reviewing The Sun’s Tirade, Isaiah Rashad’s New Album


The Sun’s Tirade is the debut studio album from American hip hop recording artist Isaiah Rashad. It was released on September 2, 2016, and is his second release with Top Dawg Entertainment, following 2014′s critically-acclaimed Cilvia Demo. The album features guest appearances from SiR, Zacari, Kendrick Lamar, Deacon Blues, Kari Faux, Syd tha Kyd, Hugh Augustine, Jay Rock and SZA. The album’s production was handled by several producers including Mike Will Made It, D. Sanders, Cam O’bi, J. LBS, The Antydote and Chris Calor. The Sun’s Tirade was supported by the single, Free Lunch”.

The Sun’s Tirade is a very laid back album, with nothing but good vibes all the way through. I could see myself listening to it many more times. But other than Kendrick’s verse, I didn’t hear anything special on this album. That’s not a bad thing, because there’s so many good moments on here. It’s not a lyrical album, and it doesn’t try to be. Most songs are very chill, something I’d put on as I ride around to while running errands.
