Setting his crosshairs on Jeezy and T.I, the Atlanta native reminds of the young, ambitious, and ruthless Marlo Stanfield coming for Avon and Stringer’s top spot in HBO’s The Wire. Alley doesn’t come across as a removed felon rehashing his old war stories, but rather someone unafraid of still getting their hands dirty. Nothing here sounds far-fetched or contrived, with reputation and authority being motivation over any sort of financial desire. On the project’s standout “Up Here,” Alley admits, “I done stepped on a few toes to get here, but I’m here.” By any means necessary.
