Long Verses With The Pope – Whata Mess

What It Sound Like?

Got another coincidental situation to talk about. I'm aware of how the  internet shortens distance and I usually write about people far away.  I've mentioned tonight's subject before, as I covered Diaz Brothers by Cocareef. Who is from New Jersey. Whata Mess made an appearance on the creative piece, and currently launching his own mixtape. 

Little did I know he lives within fifteen to twenty minutes away from  my rest in West Palm Beach, FL. Mess spills personality across a spread of dope tracks by dope producers. Including a favorite of  mine, DJ Pain 1 and familiar friend Four Limbs, plus we get introduced to some, as  well. I'm feeling the sounds of Drunk, Richie Bane, The Heretic, and  Syer Esso. More rare digs provided by Rob Mil, Lowkey, and Luis Blue.

Whata Mess is a Boom Bap native. After the intro gets under your skin he throws lyrics explaining society's poisons.  The first quarter is very  transparent. He uses himself as the scapegoat facing temptation, fighting to not be a product of the environment. Raw flows embracing his Latin bloodline will impress you.

I like the one-liner style through St. George,as well as  Don't Move An Inch. The artist defends authentic Hip Hop with Johnny Props. Fakes want no parts trying to rebuttal. Features are first class with the revisiting, Nowaah The Flood. Always a pleasure to hear a verse from him. Also show love for RAN introduction, Grone Da Radikal. Who could be heard sharpening steel on two joints with Mess.

The scenes are vivid on LVWTP, some crime scenes, but delivered clearly. Originality is constant, good reason to get to Dat Piff and start downloading. I'm grateful for the positive reactions from readers. May Yeshua bless you!  


If Cocaine Could Talk 3 – RJ Payne

What It Sound Like?

While you pile up on those holiday extras, I’m here to make sure you take in some substance. Despite the title, there will be no illegal plays or deadly addictions dealt here. It’s the hustle, aspiration, lethal content RJ Payne refers to as this high end product. Happens to be one of the most sought after products in the street, plus corporate. The artist proceeds to metaphorically describe himself as such. Plenty rappers aim to get brick prices for their verse, so it’s easy to relate to.

Making a pleasant return, RJ blesses All Nighters with a follow up album. With his third investment in the ICCT series, he made a bigger impact. This piece attracted star cameos we’re glad to hear from. From Philly-Hip Hop staple, Tracey Lee, Griselda Records own Westside Gunn, Paul Caine from Desert Storm and the lyrical Elzhi. Some powerful spoken word from Lady Lioness of Urban Poetics. One tune features Big Twins of Infamous Mobb, produced by DJ Skizz  (World Music Group). Might be the more sensitive joint on the album, I believe it’s the only one with a hook. The rest are straight bars of Payne!

Other well selected producers are FonkStarr of Crummie Beats from Virginia. Four Limbs across the pond in the UK, the Brooklyn producer Asethic with souls sounds. Another out of  BK is Stan Da Man,made hits for a long list of spittas. The closing track was brought yo you by P.A. Dre, all heavyweights. 

You have to appreciate How Payne is able to display different angles of rap. He has bars, beat selection, flows, professionalism, and something for the gutter. Easy to notice the hard effort put in to achieve this lyrical awareness. This is a fun listen with plenty of “You heard what he saids?” The free listen link is available at YouTube, still purchase your copy of this powerful series. The love is spreading more each day, I appreciate you joining me. Blessings of the Most High to all readers.
