Tela’s debut is an inconsistent but promising set of Southern rap, highlighted by cameos from Suave labelmates 8Ball and MJG. Though he tries to push his hardcore side throughout the record, his true strength is in new jack ballads, such as “Let It Rain,” which bring the record to another level. There’s not quite enough of them on Piece of Mind, but the bulk of the record is promising and entertaining enough to make it worth a listen.
