This is the 9th full-length album from Detroit emcee Ty Farris. Coming up under the name T-Flame, he was featured on a lot of projects throughout the mid-2000’s until the very end of the decade where he started to put out solo stuff at a prolific rate from Tyrant to Room 39. But coming fresh off his 3rd EP Moments of Mayhem alongside his last 2 albums Fluorescent Mud & Pain for Ya Vein respectively, Ty’s liking back up with Trox for a 3rd installment of the Room 39 saga.

After the intro, the first song “Defiant Stance” is an impassioned opener with Ty talking about not tolerating any disrespect & smiling when slitting motherfucker’s necks whereas “Came a Long Way” with 38 Spesh finds the 2 over a soulful instrumental talking about how far they’ve made it in this rap game. “Another Crackbaby” works in a high-pitched vocal sample with some kicks & snares getting on his battle rap shit, but then Rome Streetz comes into the picture for the woozy “Different Bracket” justifiably comparing & contrasting them from anyone else bar for bar.

However with “Disloyalty Meets Greed & Revenge”, we have T-Flame over a mellow ass beat coming through with some remarkable storytelling for 3 & a half minutes leading into the groovy “Please Don’t Overdose” of course talking about that cocaína. “You Didn’t Know You Was in Hell” returns to the boom bap welcoming you to a place where everybody be plotting just before the song “Let’em Out the Prison” going into more conscious territory with a somber yet dusty beat. The penultimate track “Seize It” with Noveliss sees the pair over a flute talking about waiting their lives for this moment & “Venting” is a confessional closer with a slick instrumental.

Everything that Trox has laced for Ty is just absolute gold, so it really shouldn’t come as a surprise that Welcome 2 Room 39 stands as my favorite project that he’s done since the 4th installment of the No Cosign, Just Cocaine series. I know I’ve been like a broken record for the past year by mentioning the long-awaited 5th & final entry set to arrive next month, but this continues to bring the astonishing cohesiveness that made Room 39 & it’s sequel highlights in T-Flame’s discography.

Score: 9/10
