While the appearance of members of the Odd Future crew on one another's albums is as certain as the sunrise, the collaboration between MellowHype (made up of Hodgy Beats and Left Brain) and Domo Genesis to create MellowHigh is a whole new kind of beast. Joining forces, the trio members find a balance between their two styles, with producer Left Brain scaling back the darkness a bit while still maintaining the surreal feeling he's so adept at imbuing his beats with. On the rhyming side of things, Hodgy and Domo feel loose and confident, giving the album a relaxed feeling that pairs well with the blunted-out production. And because this is an Odd Future project, fellow OFWGKTA members Tyler, the Creator and Earl Sweatshirt make appearances on a couple of tracks, putting a cherry on top of a promising team-up from two of the hip-hop collective's shining stars.
