In an era where lyricism isn’t enough anymore, Terrace Martin sets the bar mile-high with 3ChordFold. His artistry is unmatched and his detail is intricately ornate. Look no further than “Can’t Help It,” and “Over Time.” The album tells a story about a love triangle, and flows in a fluid way that’s absent from most others. Rapping is only another instrument, as Terrace often utilizes the piano, saxophone, and masterfully handles most of the production duties himself, notably on records like “No Wrong, No Right.” So the only thing left to ask is: What can Terrace Martin not do?
