Lorde Fredd33’s debut album sounds like Kendrick and Wu-Tang Clan had a baby that was raised on the North side of Milwaukee. Pitchfork gave “Norf: The Legend of Hotboy Ronald” a 7.5 out of 10 calling the album “a complex, deeply-personal portrait of black life in America’s rust belt.
The album comes out strong with “Sanctified,” a slow gospel song that will take your butt to church. He seeks “salvation” by confronting the anger, frustration and violence of his past. He elevates to a “higher place” as he sheds old skin, facing the next phase of his life and setting the tone for this album with a new vulnerability.
