Lazarus by Travie McCoy
Released: Jun 2010
Label: Decaydance/Fueled By Ramen
Travie McCoy built his career by blending skate-rap swagger with an earnest emo-pop vibe in Gym Class Heroes. Alas, much like that group's offerings, Lazarus is also split between hits and misses. When his formula works, the results are impressive: "We'll Be Alright," "Billionaire" and "After Midnight" sound like radio sure shots. Other songs like "Critical" and "Need You" overreach with broad themes and syrupy sentiments. Despite Lazarus' familiarity, McCoy hides a few surprises: On "Akidagain," he reminisces about old-school hip-hop over an interpolation of Ahmad's "Back in the Day."
