Not every album needs to be a turn up. Sometimes it’s best to sit back, light up, and let the project run from start to finish. Therapeutic, the debut project by A-Minus and Chanes, is definitely the latter. Released via DJ Soko’s Left of Center (LOC), Therapeutic embodies the spirit of the smoke sesh in the best way. At ten tracks, the album is packed to the brim with Chanes’ hazy, chopped and screwed, bangers that fit perfectly with A-Minus’ candid storytelling. While this is the first official A-Minus and Chanes record, both have spent significant time in Detroit’s rap scene and beyond. The thing about Therapeutic is that it feels cohesive. As if everything is where it’s supposed to be. The album isn’t A-Minus rapping over a bunch of different beats from a bunch of different producers. It’s A-Minus rapping alongside Chanes’ well-placed snares and kicks. With only a few select guest appearances including Nolan The Ninja, E-Fav, Norman Vincent, and the Cadillac Papers, this is A-Minus’ moment.
