God Will’n is the comeback mixtape that fans have been awaiting from Juelz for years. Juelz proves that he hasn’t missed a step with this project.
Juelz Santana is back withÂ vengeanceÂ and we can only hope that he'sÂ here to stay this time. God Will'nÂ is the firstÂ mixtape from Santana sinceÂ Blow,Â which was a joint mixtape withÂ LilÂ Wayne. Fans of the Diplomats rapperÂ have been waiting for himÂ to get back on the scene for quite sometime. The Harlem native hasÂ promised new material a number of different times, but due to studio raids and otherÂ issues,Â he was neverÂ able to follow through on his word. This time around though,Â Santana delivered justÂ as promised, and his new tape shows his focus and determination to get back on his rap grind.Â
From the start of the tape, Juelz makes itÂ evident that he is going for the jugular and then some. He starts off the tape with a joint entitled âSho Nuffâ where he spits for four minutes with classic NY delivery, over a slowed down beat where he states he is back to claim what is rightfully his. He then transitions into the Jahlil Beats-produced track entitledÂ âNobodyâs Safe.â This joint kind of sums up the mindset that it seems Juelz currently has, which is basically thatÂ 'no rapper is safe.'Â He is back and his peersÂ better take notice. With the beat booming in the background, this proves as the perfect compliment to Juelzâs boastful lyrics.
The Dipset rapperÂ also proved that even though he is been away from the game for a little while, he isÂ able to effortlessly workÂ with some of the new cats in rap, as well as take on the new style of beats taking over hip-hop. There is no better example of this than the Rick Ross, Meek Mill and Fabolous-assisted joint entitled âSoft.â With Rick RossÂ on the hook, and Meek and Fab providing two mean sixteens, Juelz proves that he can do that 'new, new.'Â Santana really proves himself onÂ this one, as he provides fans with one of his best verses onÂ the tape.
The chemistry with previous collaborators and veteran rappers, such asÂ Young Moneyâs own, Lilâ Wayne, ("Black Out") proves to still be in tact as well. This is seen once more onÂ the stand-out cut,Â âTurn ItÂ Up.âÂ The club-oriented record featuresÂ Queens native, Lloyd BanksÂ and the beat works extremely wellÂ for Juelz and theÂ PLK, making fans even more hopeful of some sort of collabo project between the two.Â âBoth Sidesâ featuring Lil' DurkÂ and Jim Jones is sure to have you scrunching your face as soon as the beat drops, with Durk providing one of the standout hooks on the tape. âBodiesâ featuring Lil' ReeseÂ speaks for itself as it was the first single off of the tape, and the title seems fitting as Juelz seems to beÂ gunning for his fellow rappersÂ one by one.
Finally, we can't forgetÂ one of the best solo joints on God Will'n,Â âMy Will.â Juelz decides to get personal with the listeners for a little bit, as he makes thisÂ one of the more serious tracks on the tape. Santana speaks to some of the closest people in his life as he lets them know if it all ended today what he would leave to them in his honor. The smooth Gnyus-produced beat proved to be perfect compliment to his sincere lyrics.
The Dipset representative has always been known to have an ear for beats and this project proves he hasn't lost it.Â It seems everything was carefully picked out with perfect precision, which makes theÂ delay a little easier to stomach. This tape is only the beginning though,Â as part two ofÂ this series is on its way soon.Â As for this tape, Juelz has not left fans hungry as he may have in the past.Â The way he was able to incorporate his classic sound with a mixture of what is current in rapÂ should not go overlooked. We'll have to wait to see if he can maintain his momentumÂ with God Will'n Pt. 2.
