Dirty Sprite 2 (Epic)

ACL Music Fest 2015 Friday Record Reviews – Second Weekend

Hail the king of the Internet! Behold his throne of malted club bangers and legit emotional availability. He's the only storm trooper in Atlanta's camp willing to open up like, "I wanna tell the world about you just so they can get jealous/ If you see her before I do, tell her I wish that I met her." Dirty Sprite 2, Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn's third album, is his most epicurean work yet. At 13 tracks, democratic in a world of hour-plus mixtapes, the MC disses fake friends with Drake on "Where Ya At" and pisses out neon codeine in "Thought It Was a Drought." This is no longer a sunny world. (6pm, Honda stage)
