Willy Northpole - Tha Connect

Being first recognized by 50 Cent, Willy Northpole eventually found a record deal. Ludacris took him under his wing and introduced him to the Disturbing Tha Peace record label. This is Northpole's debut album and although I don't know a whole lot about him, I'm going to give it a shot. Here it is, Tha Connect. 1. Intro: Just like Ludacris, Northpole wastes no time. On this intro he spits some lines and it's a pretty good intro. He puts down some pretty nice rhymes and he does have a unique voice. Decent track. 3/5 2. Hood S***: The beat is nice on this track because it allows WN to slow down and say some nice lines. This is definietely a good track and I hope there's more like it to come. 4/5 3. The Story: This is definitely a highlight on the album. This track discusses WNP's relationship with 50 and how he was lead to Disturbing Tha Peace. The song is definitely one of my favorites. 4.5/5 4. Skit (How Hard) 5. Body Marked Up: The beat here sounds fantastic and WN spits some lines that are just pure fire. This is another hot track that shows WNP has some talent. 4/5 6. Hood Dreamer: This track is hot! The beat went well with WN's flow and I can see why it was chosen as a single. It has radio play value to it and it's just an all around good song. (I know the lyrics aren't great but WN obviously isn't a lyricist so you just have to take him how he is). 4.5/5 7. Feeling Alright: I don't like this track what so ever. The beat is on the wack side and WNP just puts down pointless lyrics. This is definitely a step down from the rest of the album. 2/5 8. Skit (Ghetto Tour Guide) 9. Ghetto Tour Guide: I enjoyed this track. The beat was nice and WNP was able to spit some nice lines. This was definitely a step up from the previous track, but it was still pretty average. 3/5 10. #1 Side Chick: The production value here is good and this is obviously a song for the ladies. I don't dig those types of tracks, but I know many do. WNP is able to flow nicely over the beat, but it's nothing we haven't heard before. 3/5 11. Vegas Lights: Once again, the production is great. Some times it seems like WNP had to force himslef to flow faster, but other then that, the track is good. 3.5/5 12. The Life: I love the beat here and also the feature. Ne-Yo sounds very comfortable and WNP is also right in his comfort zone. This is definitely one of my favorites off the album. 4.5/5 13. Dear Lord: This track is a personal one, so I have to respect it. It's nice to actually here some meaningful lyrics from WNP, but I just wish the song would've been longer. Finally, WNP was showing his lyricist side, but it was only a hint. 3.5/5 14. Skit (At Salt's Grave) 15. Heaven: This is a Tupac tribute that just doesn't do any justice. This isn't a great song and I definitely wouldn't have ended the album this way. On the other hand, WNP shows that he can lay down some meaningful lyrics and shows that he does have that lyricist instinct within him. You're call on which side to take. 3.5/5 All in all, this album was decent at best. Every song here didn't bring anything new, but WNP at least as a unique voice. WNP didn't try very hard on writing meaningful lyrics on the majority of the album, but he did show hints that he has it in him. Yes, he does have the lyricist side in him, he just needs to learn to unleash it. Being that this was his debut album, it wasn't a disaster. I'm hoping that come next time, he will bring stronger lyrics and harder beats (this means that he will have to rap louder, but I know he can do that). Like I said, this didn't bring anything new to the table, but I know he has the talent in him to make a better album. Overall Score: 3/5 (72 percent)

Phoenix, Arizona, lyricist Willy Northpole had contact with music from an early age. His father played guitar in a local band called the Whiteheads but Willy was attracted more to the street life--and landed in a juvenile correctional facility for robbery at age 15. During his three-year stay, he immersed himself in hip-hop, wrote rhymes, and perfected a smooth, understated flow reminiscent of Jay-Z’s. After his release, Northpole built his reputation in Phoenix’s rap circuit, releasing a handful...
