It’s been almost two years since Bas delivered his impressive debut album, Last Winter. While it may feel like a long wait for the Dreamville faithful, the first signee to J. Cole‘s imprint couldn’t be serving up his new LP at a better time. Fresh off the release of the label’s Revenge of the Dreamers II compilation and Cozz’s Nothin Personal mixtape, Bas’ Too High To Riot is a strong sophomore effort that makes it easy to see the Queens native’s growth as an artist.
