G Pea’s phenomenal, new opus “Glass House”, is opened with a poignant spoken word. Shrouded by a miscellaneous cacophony of noises, the rapper ushers us into the concept of his project. In a solemn, yet creative code, he speaks on the state of living in 21st century society; drawing countless parallels to “living in a glass house”. As moving as his soliloquy is, this ten-track album was seething for a sonic entrance to the glass abode; and G Pea provides one with the thunderous “Doors”. It is a magnetic trap banger, riddled with insightful jewels from G Pea’s own experiences and perspectives. Likewise, it cements the bases for much of the project’s sound. Tracks such as “WIFI”, the impactful single “Fishin”, “Progress”, and “Where You Going?” each adhere to this harmonious rubric; thumping club-ready beats coupled with inspiring, conscious bars.
Two personal favorites have to be the victorious, poetically-written 8th track “Foundation”; and the soulful, auto-tuned ballad of the 9th track “Devote”. Both show the splayed range of G Pea’s artistry, and add gorgeous architectural dimensions to the “Glass House” aforementioned. Truly, the masterpiece is a concept album, through and through; where the intellect of G Pea’s lyricism aims to refurnish the “Glass House” we’ve all been living in. By the end of the album, we discover that G Pea does not find this residence problematic what-so ever. The problem lies within the fact that, in the 21st century, we are all throwing stones. He hopes, with a listen to this incredible album that he can begin to remove those rocks from the palms of our hands.
