We gave it a B+

The Brooklyn MC has been refining his lo-fi hip-pop on the mixtape circuit for years now. His debut full-length has a distinctly downtown vibe to it — as if made to soundtrack the lives of cool kids who pair fitted slacks and Air Jordans with felt-brim hats. London possesses a rich set of gifts: songs like the bass-bumping ”Love Is Real” showcase his penchant for poignant rhymes, goofball puns, and Kid Cudi-like melodic moans. Odd? Yes. But Timez Are Weird These Dayz feels like a welcome cool breeze in sweltering mid summer. B+
