Whew, this is nice. And that is such an understatement. I Self Devine
brings his seemingly effortless A-game to this project.
I started playing this while I was multitasking, but it didn't take me long to focus my attention and say, who's that again? Then I went back to see the name of the track; several tracks actually.
You must listen to "Flat Black"
- interesting intro material
- great lyrics
- confident, but not egotistical delivery
- hype music
- dj antics (i.e. cuttin and scratchin)
The mellower beats also work for this guy; the flow is easy to understand and it just all fits together nicely. The tracks are a bit short, but they're complimentary as a project. That's cool.
And what't not to love about a free download: no pain, all gain hip hoppers. kfox.
