Background[edit | edit source]
Following the release of Cocaine is Gay, Ethan announced his second album on his Twitter, with the captions; "THE NEXT ALBUM GONNA BE 100% ART, YEAH THATS THE NAME AND MEANING".
Ethan later stated he was aiming for a release date before 2022, however, after 2021, Ethan later stated on Twitter "mb yall, 100% Art is in Jan 2022." A few days later, Ethan would post some snippets from the album.
The album was recorded throughout November 5, 2021 to January 27, 2022.
Release and promotion[edit | edit source]
The music video for the album's second track "Beast Mode" was released on January 29, 2022 as a Random Records exclusive directed by DaDamnDirector (a cousin of Lil Important who also directed his music videos for 3-D and more).
Critical reception[edit | edit source]
100% Art was met with generally positive reviews. According to 7 reviews, the album has an average score of 75 out of 100. Real Random Rap stated “this is an upgraded new style of Ethan, and it’s really impressive to see how he came from The King to 100% Art.” Fellow Randomese rapper Lil Important showed praise by shouting Ethan out on his Twitter.
To much surprise, Ethan decided to leave out one of the songs that was most highly anticipated “Luv Lol”, which was first previewed on his Youtube account, and leaked on January 26, 2022. According to the producer, Inverse, he stated that he told him the fans wanted it but Ethan said it was incomplete.
