Lil Gray is from the home of FedEx Field and The Washington Football Team. The Landover, Maryland resident proves his naysayers wrong on his latest album, 10B410. His latest LP is filled with infectious beats, scathing flows, and smooth sequencing. Street raps tend to be repetitive in nature, but Gray has found a way to keep it fresh. The pandemic was tough for many but some, and it was a “bandemic,” to say the least. This project is an ode to everyone able to find a way to shine through the tough situation.
Lil Gray Is Ready!
On the mixtape, Lil Gray shows exactly why he’s nicknamed the “Man of Many” around his parts because he can get on literally any instrumental and skate over it with his infinite bag of flows, and increasingly on this project, Gray has been showing off his increasing vocal mastery with some more melodic tracks that show his natural and developing range, as well as greatly improved songwriting that is taking more structure on this project rather than just punchline heavy music as he had made mostly up until this point.
His producer and friend Sparkheem have also been a DMV staple for the better part of a decade now. This is arguably his best and most creative work to date, and he received a lot of help from his frequent collaborators Mannyvelli and Spizzledoe. I can’t possibly imagine that Lil Gray will be a diamond in the rough for too much longer, and he proves that and then some on his new mixtape 10B410.
