True Links is the debut EP by rapper Edgar Allen Floe. It contains nine tracks produced by 9th Wonder, Illmind, and others. Only one track has guest vocals: L.E.G.A.C.Y. and Median appear on "The Great Adventure". DJ Ethx considers this to be a reason why True Links is monotonous stating, "[d]epending on your patience or perspective, Mr. Floe's True Links is either a decent, and promising, debut for an artist in his career's infancy or a fairly monotonous listen; one that could have been aided by a bit of versatility in cadence and tone, or perhaps supplemented by more guest vocalists."[5][not in citation given] Similarly, Miles Duncan of Okayplayer considers the EP to have repetitive and monotonous rapping, but also strong production and personal lyrics.[6] Starrene Rhett of AllHipHop.com describes True Links as a "dope listening experience[...] [e]compassing a jazzy sound reminiscent of east coast Hip-Hop circa the early to mid 90's."[7][not in citation given]
