10. Isaiah Rashad- Cilvia Demo
Most were introduced to Isaiah Rashad through his affiliation with TDE, and the collective's finger prints are all over Cilvia Demo, mainly in the form of production and engineering tricks. The label's unique use of doubled vocals puts the Kendrick stamp on Rashad, but otherwise the album stands as an uncompromising southern rap record.
From song title tributes to Webbie ("Webbie Flow") and Scarface ("Brad Jordan"), the South is well-represented in Rashad's music, but they appear as milestones in his life, as he recalls his past with anecdotes like "back when Juvie was the great". The songs glide by with a breezy nonchalance, but they're filled with confessions, adding color to the sepia-toned feel of the production.
