Album Review: Z-Ro - "Meth"

By Hardcore Critic
Hip Hop Vibe Staff Writer

Over the past decade, critics have pointed out how the quality of hip hop music has decreased. What has been overlooked is the work ethic of several rappers. Houston rapper, Z-Ro, has been among the hardest working rappers in the game.

Z-Ro has released an album a year, or more, for the past seven years and has shown no signs of slowing down. The latest album in his drug series is Meth. The new album comes on the heels of his 2010 drug-themed release, Heroin.

With Meth, Z-Ro continues his trend of melodic flows over the Southern beats. Despite other Houston-area rappers gaining more media attention, Z-Ro cements himself as one of the best rappers from Houston, of all-time. A decade ago, rappers became comfortable with singing on their records. Many rappers continue to sing, many off-key, but not Z-Ro, as he shows he can do both at ease.

Z-Ro has anthems, such as his "H-Town Kinda" and street songs, such as the Bun B-assisted "Ro and Bun." Those songs are what keeps the album creative and shows Z-Ro's diversity as an artist. Meth is one of the best albums of 2011 and it will likely go unheard by the masses. The album is currently in stores and is well worth a listen.
