A poetic review of Lex Amor’s potent Government Tropicana

Lex Amor’s Government Tropicana
Queen of the pen-game, made landing like a monsta
9 thoughts scattered through soulful bliss, the 8th wonder
“Seven Days” flowing like 6 crayons on some paper,
Painting a picture of struggle yet liberation
Go collect your order from freedom station,
“Plant Your Feet (P.Y.F)”
Firmly on the ground, no stress,
We family, been around
Find timeless music from lost and found,
Sound driven from a lovely place
“Quarter Century” the opening page,
Dani Sofiya, pure and gorgeous
Maxwell Owin, always victorious,
Talk about riddims, Lo-Wu sounds on the set
One of the coldest ever to do it, that’s a bet,
DIPS always delivers
Going through some phases that’s always a given,
And don’t speak to me about greatest in the UK
If you not mentioning Seinna, and I’m not playin’,
“Bones” one of the hardest on the project
Heartfelt verses about pain and love, time to dissect,
Young black and unsung, young black London
Levitating through the city like a fucking champion
Thing’s a “Mazza” word to Melo-Zed on production
Whole track feels like the utter seduction,
Amor is in the sky and more amour to follow
Despite feelings at times feeling dry and oddly hollow,
Self-love, love others, clear skies, no troubles
Aim is to build love beyond our own bubble,
“100 Angels” with that smooth sound
Reminds me I should be home bound
Lyrics so dope they never fail to astound,
With these freestyles I don’t even know where to start
“Odogwu” with an eerie tone, bullseye with the dart,
And talk about inspiration, “341” end on a pure high
Black Joy and magic never sounded so pure like a Bonzai,
Lex Amor’s time has arrived
Never felt music as divine
Hope you continue to blossom and shine, shine, shine!

But on a separate note, go support and give her her flowers,
Government Tropicana out now, bless your soul with a 30 minute shower.
