While listeners were immediately impressed with Isaiah Rashad following his Cilvia Demo project, it's safe to say they are going to fall in love with his newest project The Sun's Tirade.

The approximately two and a half year wait was well worth it for the product fans received on Friday, September 2.

The dream invoking production on The Sun's Tirade is matched up brilliantly with the immaculate delivery and stylings of Rashad.

The "where u at?" intro perfectly expresses the anticipation that many were feeling and shows just how much everyone wanted the album, including Top Dawg officials.

The Sun's Tirade then continues with a smokey and jazzy track titled, "4r Da Squaw." It's a track where you can find yourself taking that late night drive and opening your mind as the street lights pass above your head.

It is followed nicely by "Free Lunch" and "Rope // rosegold" featuring SiR.

"Wat's Wrong" features Zacari and Kendrick Lamar who all display some pretty fierce musicality. Lamar kills his verse which is no surprise given the big name he has in hip-hop right now.

Lamar also reminds fans that he considers himself to be the best rapper since he was 25 and anyone who disagrees is a liar. His confidence was at an all time high on this track.

The bouncy "Park" has slight trap flavors sprinkled throughout it.

Almost every track that follows is spectacular and the overall flow of the album is brilliant.

More standout pieces from The Sun's Tirade include, "Tity and Dolla" featuring Hugh Augustine and Jay Rock, "Stuck in the Mud" featuring SZA, "A Lot," "Dressed Like Rappers" and "Brenda."

The Sun's Tirade is an instant classic from Rashad who still has a ways to go as he is really just getting started. You can stream the entire album below and let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
