On the come-up from Georgia, 20-year-old rapper-singer, Quando Rondo, releases his heavy debut album QPac, which sees the Atlantic Records‘ artist resonate with the hardships of the late legend Tupac Shakur.
While a hip hop freshman, Rondo divulges substantial appeal, from spitting profound bars in-between searching for “Real Love” and taking “Collect Calls,” to entwining urban melodies amid his “Codeine Tales” of ‘dopeboy dreamin‘ to swearing by the hustle in “Letter to My Daughter,” a heartfelt ode to his newborn.
QPac is the highly anticipated follow-up from Rondo‘s well-received mixtape, From the Neighbourhood to the Stage (2019). QPac sees several references to the life and work of 2Pac and while promising, the artist’s intrepid self-comparison to 2Pac as an artist – is better left a defiant aspiration rather than a truth.
The 18-track album features Luh Kel, Polo G, A Boogie Wit da Hoodie, and Lil Durk.
