The album is about self-discovery and harnessing ones' identity to grow and thrive. DillanPonders invites us to appreciate his evolution as an artist and human being as we hear about the rapper's shrinking social circle, his increasing business ventures and his budding relationship. For the most part, nothing is off limits, which allows him to easily switch between subjects easily.
While every song is worth a listen, "Hercules" is especially noteworthy, as its slow tempo contrasts with the generally upbeat album. Similarly, "Mandem" is laid-back but serves as a powerful anthem for brotherhood. If you're familiar with DillanPonders, you know that he likes to keep things blunt, which is his strength throughout Acid Reign. (Smashmouth Entertainment Inc.)
