Sheff G may be the closest thing to a traditionalist to emerge from Brooklyn’s burgeoning drill scene. One and Only, though, is only nominally a drill album. While there are moments like the menacing “No Suburban, Pt. 2,” elsewhere, the Flatbush native switches modes, turning introspective over more conventional production on songs like “Fear Over Love” and “Once I’m Gone,” as he experiments with deliveries. Every track doesn’t hit, but throughout the project, Sheff shows that he has the technical acumen to transcend the subgenre he helped establish. Time will tell if he needs to. —Lucas Wisenthal
