What It Sound Like?
I'm a considerate person, I put others before me a lot. Especially when selecting artists to write about. This time, the material speaks my language. From album name, song names, plus slick criteria to support it. VRN Hayes is another throwback to Cali emcees I grew up listening to.
South Central is a section the seasoning sticks to in the cultural melting pot through Los Angeles. Quick recovery from a major surgery, he springs back with a locked and loaded EP. You know 1 Shot has to dig a joint with substance like Aim produced by the unique Arcitek. The intro to pain yet to come.
"If you niggas count me out hen you shouldn't count" This chorus line sticks out as much as bars from a verse. He states the hindrances in life, and attacks them. Interesting name of the key pusher here, Layer Beats, that's exactly what he brought out of the artist, layers. Mva snook a banger to the stu, Hayes made the self-titled hit. This one got high motivating energy. Hard and could go radio!
Things get more transparent with L is for Lessons, sole feature from Duke Rukus. An artist and person from the same cloth of Hayes. Emcees give the listeners something to hold on to. The music you could feel. Ironically, the classic ambience is set by Young Sound. Though, it as an EP, a story is told as if there were 16 tracks.
I'm very impressed and was able to peep so many dynamics. I hope an album is on the way. For now, keep Steady. Pick it up at your favorite online store. I'm about to roll up a SPLIFF:30 and go back to CMO. "I done robbed a nigga with no bullets." Shout to everybody, for real. The reception is all love, Jah bless!
