Reading the title, I start thinking of what a rare commodity that is. Too often, the word is thrown around carelessly. When someone is loyal, you don't have to ask or state it. That quality is recognized. Qualities you find in this rap pack!
Hip Hop has reached heights due to visionaries like Cocareef. Always pushing without limit in sight. Forthcoming, Surfboard Assassins is more than promising. Singles are shaking the grounds up, now. Fortunately, we have one to tap into. Whata Mess and General Back Pain also ride the tide Wavy Da Ghawd provides.
This loop is for the bars. We don't need no hook on this beat. Everybody included is important in this underground movement. We know without a solid foundation, the mainstream won't function. So you're looking at a producer, engineer, illustrator, as well as emcees that will be impacting the direction of media in the near future. Some of those actions have already begun to take place with features, radio, plus pop ups.
These guys prove Loyalty to the art, and this tune is a fraction of the fire the album delivers. Or should I say lava? Pick your favorite platform with this one. Originally, on Bandcamp. Now, available in all digital music stores. Get up with these artists now, they're only getting busier. Thank you for staying up with me. Blessings from Yahweh

One of the luxuries of underground content is hidden gems. I feel like this artist says some of the slickest lines, and deserves to be on your radar. The Deity, V is product of a talent rich, inner city. Newark, NJ has given us talent and ambition from sports, music, to politics. We're running with the music for this post.
Deity is full of character, to say the least. Initially, some of his art work could be a little spooky. Once you listen to what he's saying and how, you're gonna be impressed. He is an emcee that puts as many of his experiences in rhyme, as possible. With all the personality he has, it makes it more likely. Too many people claim swag, personality stands out. I don't know if he knows it, but he has star power.
Shouts to Ahj, who worked on the production. Laid back Boom Bap, Lo-fi approach. Deity also put his hand in the mix. A line that sticks out to me, "I shine brighter than what moths seek" V brings you spiritual flows with slickness. The Lord brought me through warfare some time back. When I hear the artist, he addresses similar issues. Instead of trying to be gangsta, he's just honest. Much more credible, plenty people could relate. By hearing a talented rapper mention it, they might become more comfortable talking about it.
This is a thinkers tune. Do roll something up while you vibe to this heat. Drink if you have a smooth one. Get your version from Bandcamp, show your support. The more from you, the more beats to buy and studio time. Special thanks to our fans, keep passing through. More on the way for you. As always, I want to see you blessed by the Lord!

The shadowy raps continue with this custom edition. Earlier, was a single. Now we get into an EP released by The Deity, V. He storms in exercising lyrics with cadences involving sacred names. Walking down a narrow path in Kumite produced by Brabus Reed.
The next tune comes through like a winter chill with harmonic loop from NC. Some dope wordplay, as well as Near Rhyme display. An attribute pointed out by fellow blogger Rap Seminar. "Legalize the smoke that way anybody can get it I know" Another sneaky line, it's the punches fighter don't see that get them.
V grabs a track from Heretic for some abstract poetry. Defining himself celestial, betrayed by and undervalued. Knowing his worth, the young lady is expected carry herself upon high. I respect where his mind is at. Adeadly double dose of Venom is a cipher based joint. Taz Grooze and DEMON973 join the freestyle over the laid back beat by NightChild.
One more soulful track from Heretic carries us out. Hear the record spin through the sample. V gives us a melodic flow. Confidence is proven through the voice inflection. He uses the range of his vocals to his best benefit. Bars are original as his style.
The Deity rhymes in the spiritual realm. The road less traveled in this game over saturated with cartel careers. Mamba is audio therapy. Something different and authentic. One more pick up from Bandcamp. Thank you to our readers and artists for your confidence. May Yashua bless you eternally!
