The reunion of Mach-Hommy and Westside Gunn is one that was overdue but well worth the wait. West's curational abilities are on point here as the beat selection is fantastic and Mach-Hommy delivers several amazing performances whether he's dropping intricate lyrics or singing. His usual embrace of his Haitian identity and Haitian Creole is the cherry on top, giving "Pray For Haiti" Mach's personal touch/flair. stef
