ALBUM REVIEW

Campana

The Burner Tape

Released July 2018

Campana’s got talent in the bank, and a year of successes that includes a high-energy performance at Prince’s Paisley Park mansion in Minnesota. On The Burner Tape, he steps into the role of high-stakes dealer who’s “got that shit that can make you relax.” Earmilk says that “on Burner, he’s all about the hustle, delivering laissez-faire swag and humor over a bouncy backdrop.” Respect My Region praises this project too. Campana “picks up his stack of cash, and waves it in your face. Are you listening? Are you watching? Because you should. Dude is building an empire.”
