Tracing its roots to a duo formed by XXXTentacion and Ski Mask the Slump God, Broward County collective Members Only now includes the likes of Kid Trunks, Bass Santana, Craig Xen, Robb Banks, and more. On the 4th compilation from the group (presented by XXXTentacion), the members weave together a somber body of work, littered with despair and understandably so as the record is the first since the passing of Jahseh Onfroy in 2018. A lot of darkness inform the tracks, and although this is nothing new from the South Florida bunch, the feeling hits a little closer to home following the tragedy. "Sauce!" is classic XXX, as the rapper channels his signature despair-riddled melodies & raps on top of a grim, sedate trap beat. "Plottin" is raw and grimey, and "Fall in Love with Death" is a sincere & heavy introspection. Also check out "Love Hard, Fall Fast," "Jahseh on my Wrist," "Gassed Up!" and "Nothing."
