Album Review: Frank Peters - 50 Shades of Frank

South Carolina rap artist Frank Peters peels away musical layers on his latest album, 50 Shades of Frank. Produced by B-Major and St. Peters, the album is packed with party jams infused with a dose of reality. The inclusion of short interludes throughout the album adds a worldy vibe and reveals more levels to the emcee's style.

Songs that stand out are the album's opener, "Mr. Fran,k" which has a futuristic, airy flow; and the infectiously bouncy "Get It Right" that carries a dark edge but still would turn any party out. The versatlity on 50 Shades soars as Frank speeds up his flow on "Ambitionz" and slows it down just a bit on "Passive." More intimiate songs like "Half Dollar" give listeners a taste of his storytelling ability while "Numb" brings out witty wordplay.

The album overall displays Frank's keen delivery and lyricism as well as his songwriting and arrangement skills. It's a great look into the many styles of his artistry and only builds up momentum of what Frank's going to do next.
