EDITORS’ NOTES

Addiction Kills finds Jelly Roll at his gritty, unsparing best, his tight rap flows invoking MCs like T.I. while his stirringly sung hooks nod straight to the blues. "Hot Streak" rides a beat that flirts with both EDM and Southern rock as Jelly Roll brags about moving from Tennessee to Calabasas, though "Addiction Kills" shows that he hasn't quite left trouble behind; over foreboding piano and echoing drums, he raps painful vignettes to the people that he's lost to drugs.
