A film about Northwest hip-hop from 2020
Taylor Hart from West Coast cannabis hip-hop site Respect My Region selected 2020 Succs! as one of the very best Northwest albums from 2020, saying:
For me, Macntaj gets the award for best COVID-themed song with “I Hope You Cough” off of his album 2020 Succs!. The brilliance of just that song, to me, is enough to land this album in my top 24. Even if the rest of the album sucked (it doesn’t) I’d probably still put it on my list simply because I laugh so hard when I hear “I’m finna be at your house. I’m finna sneeze in your mouth. I’m gonna drink up all your juice, and take a leak on the couch.”
Lucky for us, Macntaj is no one-hit-wonder. He’s the type of artist who keeps you on your toes. There’s a distinct quality to the tone of his voice that is easy to recognize. Yet, he can change it up from time to time to where you might question if another rapper just hopped on the track mid-verse. One of my favorite qualities, though, is Macntaj’s masterful and dynamic delivery. Throughout the entirety of 2020 Succs!, he gives us a wide variety of different styles that keeps things spicy all the way to the end.
