Hope Is Dope 2 By Jered Sanders Is A Must-hear Album! Peep My Album Review And Stream It Here! Share Your Thoughts In The Comments Below

Jered Sanders is an artist with skills. It’s a shame we don’t talk about him more. He has an arsenal   of rhymes and flows. And those flows are complemented by sick metaphors that go beyond what a lot of other rappers are doing today. 

Jered fell in love  with Hip Hop when he was in elementary school, influenced by 2pac and others by the time he got to high school.

In 2013 he dropped his debut EP, "While You Were Waiting" but after that he went through some changes and development. That began in 2014 when Jered became a youth minister at his church and decided it had to rep for the kids in a better way, and drop better music than what he had been putting out. So he decided to sharpen his  skills.

That change led to his debut and second full length albums, Daylight Savings Time and Hope Is Dope.

Fast forward to today and now we have Hope Is Dope 2,  the second album Jered Sanders dropped on GOM (That’s God over Money for all those not knowing), following his free joint from 2016, Hope Is Dope. After giving us  the first single “All In,” he  told us  the title of the album on December 19, 2019 in a video he  posted on social media. Hope Is Dope! 2 talks about victory, confidence, integrity and humility. Source: Genius

Jered Sanders - Hope Is Dope 2 (Full Album)

Now when I first heard this joint, I liked it, it was cool, but I wasn't in love with it. It wasn't until I listened to it over and over for this review until I really grew to appreciate this joint for the work of art it is.

On the first track “All Figured Out”  he starts using puns before he even begins rapping when he says “Still got a long way to go, though.” That's a  nod to a song from Sanders' previous LP Hurry Up & Wait.  called “Long Way to Go,”  That song  deals with sanctification, and being transformed or made into a new creature. A process that takes place over time. The production on the first joint is dope but it bars will hold you hostage.

In his “Bar Exam” review for this album on Rapzilla; Luc DiMarzio said that Jered sounds like Swoope ( who people say sounds like Kanye) on the second song “All In”. And you know what? I agree! But between the hypnotic beat and the ill flow, I dig it. This is one of my favorite songs on the album. The song questions the listener. Are you all in this christian walk for real, or are you just going to be sometimey with it?

On “No Hell” He takes aim at the people who criticize, judge and attack him on social  media. And then breaks down how they think they are tough but they are not even authentic

Speaking like they samurai but really they be Dragonfly Jones, homie

Like gangs see you speaking water to their bones, homie?

Hang up my phone, homie, you ain't put me on, homie

You ain't put me on, homie

Your heart is calcified, you don't hear these songs, homie?

That's 'cause you pasteurized, milky

And you wrong, homie, the flow is catechized

Speak until the Master fly from Heaven upping Adonai

Satisfied, pacified, gratified, canonized to every other passerby

[?] all metastasized, hallelujah

So you could pick me out a cell just to push me in

But homie, you ain't got a Hell you could put me in, God!

#Bars

 On Fly High/It Ain’t Over Jered channels his inner Yeezy, flipping a bar and even borrowing the flow of the “Old Kanye”

Artists nowadays focus more on streaming and singles and less on crafting a full album as a body of work. I guess I'm just old so I appreciate the effort to put together a full album. There are songs I like more than others but this is a joint I can just put in and let it flow. You will want to hear every last bar. Jered did his thing lyrically but he also got a strong assist from Derek Minor, Sho Baraka, and Dre Murray. This album is a major go and definitely deserves major bang time!

Hope is Dope 2 is A great way to open up a new year
